12x17 is OK for two rows just not ideal, I have two rows in a 12x15, now that is squeezing it in. Your second row is going to be 6-12 inches from the back wall so your rear surrounds need to be in...

Colorwise the stove pipe would not clash with any of the other materials (carpet, recliners and wood). It does not provide any contrast so the overall look will be a slightly warm monochromatic.

If the carpet is monochrome and the...

HT has a key lock, components are behind a door and kids are not allowed in the HT without supervision.

I also give the kids friends the "If it's not your seat don't touch it". lecture.
