This is work in progress, I still need to finalize some of the wiring. The

cable/phone guy needs to install the wall jacks(that's what those white

wires are). I need to fabricate a shelf for the center channel to mount

above the screen, so till then it sits on the shelf at the right.


I think the hardest part of this project was the mounting of wall bracket.

48" high seems to be a comfortable viewing height, considering we've

watched 8 DVD's since 4pm yesterday.


Now I get to shopping for new rear speakers!! but that's another forum :)

I gotta ask, is the brick real? Are you worried about the heat from the fireplace so close to your speakers? It must have been a real b**ch routing your cables, no?

Yes, it is real brick! We measured the heat before deciding on this location,

this chimney draws too good. Where the plasma is, the hottest it got was

78deg, at speakers was temp was 90. I left enough cable to move

speakers if necessary, we don't do many fires here in California.

The wiring wasn't that bad, everything runs through the mantel.


Thanks,

Keith

Is the mount flat or tilting? If flat, how comfortable is the viewing from the distance from which you are watching? (and what is that distance?)

Looks great! I like how you used the preexisting shelves as an equipment rack. I holds all your stuff without looking "industrial".

It's a tilt mount set at about 10deg, viewing distance is 12ft and is very comfortable.

Thanks for the quick response Keith. I forgot to compliment you on the fantastic looking setup.


What tilting mount did you use?
