Stand in your room and speak to your wife. Cut the bottom and top out of a cardboard box. Stick your head the in box and speak again. Thanks exactly what will happen to your speakers in a cabinet.
|Would she potentially consider turning the closet (I assume that is the large opening on the right side) into shelving and equipment rack?|
|Then, you could build a false wall up front and place the speakers behind them to open up the sound a bit.|
|The plasma can still be mounted in the back if you built the wall to recess there like a shadow box but still be acoustically transparent.|
