Well, here they are. They are mounted on L-brackets and pointed up. The lucky part was that the subwoofer was the same thickness, so I was able to hide it back there also.
I have also added another update to my system. My friend was unloading his old tower speakers, of which they were the same Audio Concepts design as the rest of my speaker system, to me for free. I was also having the problem that my center was a little too low soooo-
I killed two birds with one stone and used the main towers as my new left and right, kept the original center but augmented it with another satellite speaker not being used and mounted above the screen. Now I already know about the don'ts of having 2 centers in a ht system, but I've broken enough "established" laws of ht so why stop now
I Like breaking the "established" rules of HT and 2-channel audio as well, especially regarding speakers. Most "audio obsessed" People say that a tower or large speaker that costs under $200.00 cannot sound good, but I would say that is just a biased statement from someone who bought one large cheap pair of speakers and get "burned" without trying other similar types of speakers within that price range before making a blanket statement.
I also will point out that most people say avoid HTIB and say there is no good HTIB with decent speakers and that is an outright lie. Look at the Onkyo HTIB's and the Higher end HTIB speaker packages from Paradigm, HSU,Klipsch and elite audio. call them "sh*tty" and you have serious issues.
Hell I am getting a used Lagre RCA HTIB from 2002 which has a Huge All metal receiver which weighs nearly 30 LBS if it is still there it sounds good enough for me and it has been there for a while.
I don't NEED HDMI and all that junk so why bother. I am happy with digital coax and TOSLINK.
I might put the big passive sub in my closet so I'll have a magic door that opens without me touching it. (the doorknob already doesnt catch) Plus the closet will act like an extra enclosure which will "boost" the bass around
Now all I need is a good comfortable seat besides a battered metal folding chair.
I can't wait for my upgraded HT. (this forum and hobby has made me mentally Ill)
