And thanks for theater compliment too
And yes, you just busted me..... for all those thinking of building a theater..... listen up and learn from one of my biggest mistakes: YOU DON’T NEED A TV BEHIND THE SCREEN. I have yet to install my 80" tv (that I bought to save the Sony 1000 ES bulb when watching news or other silly broadcast tv programs) and I have no desire to do so. Thankfully we can use it in other parts of the house. I think if I install it behind the screen no one will ever use it except for the kids if we make them use it while watching cartoons. For me, watching everything on the big screen is just too much fun.
I'm not sure exactly what you'd call my exact setup from the strict measurements..... probably a hybrid Neo X or maybe a hybrid DSX or maybe just “Neo DSX”. My height speakers (Aerial Acoustic 5B's) sit slightly outside of the mains but not quite at 45 degrees as suggested for DSX. “Heights” are the least important and I think they will sound great where they are.
For anyone interested, I didn’t destroy the expensive Aerial Acoustics 5B’s by drilling into them. On the bottom of the speakers are predrilled holes that were likely meant for a speaker stand that I used for my own purposes. I simply inverted the speaker and used those threaded holes to support the speaker in my home-made speaker mount which is attached to the ceiling.
The next big decision is when to jump on the FOSI Star Ceiling. If I jump on it now I’d like for it to be done by the holidays which might be difficult considering it could take up to 200 hours to complete. I think I might try though….
