Width of screen = 50 inches x cos (A) = 50"x 0.8716 = 43.57 inches.

Height of screen = 50 inches x sin (A) = 50" x .49 = 24.51 inches.

The actual values may differ, but these are within fractions of the actual values. You can multiply any given screen diagonal measurement for 16:9 screens in inches by the sine and cosine values above to get the width and height.

For 4:3 ratio screens, the tangent = 3/4 = 0.75, and the angle is 37.87 degrees. The cosine of the angle is 0.789 and the sine is 0.614. Multiply these values respectively by the given diagonal measurement to get the width and height of 4:3 screens.

9x = 24.51

And, yeah, getting the answer emailed to you: even easier.

Please post your picture and dimention. I am scheduled to see the cabinet maker next week. The measurement would come very handy. Thanks.

Width is 52 inches which gives 2.5 inches clearance on each side. Depth is 21.5 inches. Plenty of room to slide 507 out to make connections.

Shelf is 36 inches off the floor. Some would say that is too high, but I have absolutely no issues with it. Picture looks great whether you are standing or sitting on the couch.

Pictures to follow.

that looks very nice. have you thought about moving the left and right speakers up to the top shelf (laying them on their sides) to create a more uniform soundstage? i'm also guessing they will even sound better a bit higher off the ground. try it and see if you agree.

kevinatoaks, this set-up works well so far. I originally built it for a 50" plasma and was going to wait till they came down in price. Along came the 507 and I had to spend extra $$ to re-do the center section 'cause it was about 1 inch too short! Onkyo amp and Panasonic RP82 are in the cabinet underneath.

Thanks guys!
