Do you typically disagree with yourself like this?

And possibly looking at a solution to side speakers sticking out of wall. They're just waiting for someone to walk into them.
Planned lighting for riser before hand. Dark room. Dark carpet. Stairs are hard too see. And retrofitting after the fact sucks when I could have implemented whatever I wanted.
What would I do different when building my HT?
1. I would have researched on the internet and found this site.

3. I would have wired my HT for transducers. Having to go back and pull these was a PITA. I think I wasted around 5 hours or more this weekend pulling them and another day itching at the insulation in my skin. Pulling these wires before the wallboard was up would have made life easier. Additionally, I would have been able to install the transducers six months ago when they arrived.
4. Bought a bigger house with a larger unfinished room to build me HT. Actually, since I wanted to be on the water, it wasn't an option, but a 9' x 17' room is as small as you can get for a HT, IMHO. It works, but barely.
