Keep in mind the flash made the setup look a lot worse than it actually is. What do you think of the wooden posts that lead up the the upstairs? Do they make a good background? I can't stop looking at it and it's driving me crazy. I'm going to be updating to a 42" Maxent Plasma soon and most likely I will hang it from the ceiling down, and I'll be forced to get a component stand. And yes, the couch is falling apart, I'm gonna get it repaired soon.

The wooden post look fine, but what are their acoustic properties? I would add a throw rug down on the wood floor. I would also lower the center speaker under the TV to get the soundstage at a closer height. I like the colrs in the room.

Thanks a lot. Where should the center speaker go? If I ever get a Plasma that I would hang from the ceiling, it will be a lot easier for me to move the center speaker down. You have any websites for good rugs? I'm sure just any rug would do, of course it would be a nice rug though.

I would place the center just under the TV inside your entertainment rack, on the highest shelf. The goal is to get the tweeters in the L, C, and R speaker at near or identical height for proper imaging effects. I am sure any rug would do. The material will add mass and absorb some reflected sound which will make the room sound less live or harsh. Try and cover as much of the floor as you can.

I would put the center speaker on the top shelf but that's where the reciever is, lol. Yeah, the rug part makes a lot of sense. Thanks again.

If you move the receiver and place your center where it was it would just lift it up a bit higher to get it closer to the mains speakers height. You can always put the center under the receiver. If you are worried about heat dissipation, the pedestal feet under the receiver lift it enough to get rid of heat.

No, I wouldn't move the CC below the TV because it looks like the TV stand has a glass door. What you could do is to move the device under the CC somewhere else. I guess you would have put it in the TV stand if there was any room left so maybe over where the subwoofer is or get an amp stand and put the device on the subwoofer and the device under the CC on the amp stand. Amp stands are not too expensive 50-100 dollars and they are just one shelf about 3-4 inches off the ground. You could put the amp stand and components in the open space to the right of the TV (as you face the TV).


Pertaining to putting the CC under the TV, I have found it better to put it above because the row of chairs behind the first row would have the audio blocked by that first row. Otherwise, if you have only one row of chairs getting all three tweeters in a row at the same height is a beneficial goal.

WE did a small system close to this last week and the center was placed under the TV in a entertainment console. The client just opens the glass door for sound. You could also make a custom door with acoustically transparent grille cloth.


I like the wooden posts behind the TV. They may even act as a diffuser.
