HOLY Smokes!! I think I might have to imitate your HT...
Although I can probably only afford a single Orbit Shifter... and maybe not quite as many surrounds.. maybe just a 5.1

A few panels on the first reflection points on the side walls would be easy to install (like hanging a picture), inexpensive and probably all you would need. The Triple 12's are very imposing and cool to look at but performance wise they are very close. I'd get the speakers and Audyssey unit first, then treat as necessary.
That's my $.02
Since you have both the t8 and t12, have you exchanged them to the front and notice any real difference? You said they are close, but which is 'better'...??
I am thinking the t12s would have an advantage in the mid bass, and the 'slap in the chest' pounding you get due to it's bigger drivers moving more air...
Anyways, the Seymour XT screen is looking great.. i am actually considering either the seymour or the 4nk... and it's great to know that the seymour works great as an AT screen..
Great stuff RMK!!
btw: Have you compared turning on 1 orbit shifter vs 2 of them?
