How much gear do you own? And how much of that other gear needs to be be accessible? Could some of the small gear be mounted to a
side wall of the closet, instead of being shelf mounted?

I personally like the idea of a 2.1 projection based setup, with a big acoustically transparent screen.
In a smaller room with very limited seating.

Now I just wonder about a shallow baffle wall, and fit two HVAC drops into it,
since you are DIY'ing speakers and doing a rework of the trunk?
