What to build, I need help!


As you can see by the pic I built a new console for my tv and need to get some speakers as my towers are moved to my man cave(guest room).
I have 8.75 inches of width and 34.5 inches pf height after taking acct the width of my soon to be purchased tv. The cc cubby is 27.75 by 7.5.
I have thought about volts, the quad 4s, etc.
Basically anything I build is going to be almost an in wall due to the niche and tv screen. Any thoughts?
Also the niche is 71.5 inches wide and I have considered a phantom cc but don't like it but that might be the little Sony bookshelves talking.

Thanks in advance

I think the fusion 4 was designed with on wall mounting in mind, it is probably what I would go for

It looks like the fusion 4 is too wide by a quarter inch. You may be able to modify it to fit.

Step 1: Get a bigger TV
Step 2: Put the speakers outside the cabinet with no restriction on size.
Step 3: Profit!

Agreed, speakers should not be in a cabinet.

While that would be great, the compromise is to make this work so I can rip down a wall and build a proper theater.

Nobody has any ideas about any thing that would work in this situation?

Based on what you've described if I were you, I would spend the time building said proper theater and not worry about this secondary TV system at all.
Bedroom and Living room TV systems are for watching sesame street, not the newest blockbuster flick at full SPL. So why waste effort/time/money on them?
Once the theater is done, then worry about secondary systems... not before (or during).

You have to give members more time, only a handful live on AVS all day every day. Some only log in once a week, they don't even yet know that this thread exists...

Because we spend a lot of time with this system on as background music, and general tv/sports watching. So decent speakers are important, if commercial ones would get me my theater, then I would go that route, but would perfer DIY

Because the money man(wo) says this room needs to be working correctly before the theater and I would like good sound in there.

What don't you like about the sound?
Do you want it to be louder? Bassier?

What do you mean by "not working"?

and What do you mean by "good"?

My version of "good" is outer-space high. We probably aren't talking about the same type of "good" though...

Also, everyone's tastes in quality or good-enough will be different.
A girl you might find to be hot, I might find to be butt-ugly, and vice-versa.
How do I know that the gold dress I see isn't the blue dress you see etc etc etc?

Math is universal though. We can all agree that 1+1=2, so if you measure your system with a measurement-mic, then we can see what it is doing precisely via science/charts/numbers/facts:
http://cross-spectrum.com/measuremen...ated_umik.html
Then we will know precisely where it is weak or not weak.

The little bookshelves I have now get distorted at loud volumes. Which is too be expected for 20 dollar 15 year old book shelves. I don't listen in the family often but when I do I perfer clarity, almost flat with a rising upper end and I only want bass slighty when the alcohol calls for it.
I want to build a matching front stage that I can do in the red oak espresso stain to match.
