Have you ever wanted a subtle living room home theater? Me too, which is why the past few months I've been planning the future state of my set up. While I may have above average knowledge on the subject, I admittedly have a pretty basic understanding of room acoustics & custom AV furniture. Alas, because I haven't found anything that could work for me, the only option is to go custom.
In a perfect world, the center channel and subwoofers are hidden inside the credenza behind acoustically transparent material, along with all of the equipment allowing only a 55" LG OLED, VAVA 4k UST projector & my Focal Electra tower speakers to be visible. This set up would also allow me to use the wall for artwork instead, making it even more of a discrete set up.
I do have some concerns here though...
• How can I preserve the quality of the center while hiding it completely?
• Are there any special considerations to be made for that area of the cabinet?
• Will the subwoofers work well inside of the cabinet or would they shake them?
• How do I go about ventilation?
The distance from the projector to the screen means that the projector needs to be moved into position. Having a cabinet that is 34" deep is out of the question, so instead I came up with a solution to slide the counter top forward into the room. I'll be figuring out how to have it motorized so it happens with the push of a button, allowing the Vividstorm floor rising screen to be completely invisible underneath it in the back of the cabinet.
If anyone has any threads that could help me make some decisions for my project please forward them over. Looking forward to locking in the design & dimensions to get started.
