Yeah, but you did see that I made the opening bigger. That set is on the way upstairs and a bigger one will be in it's place!

Good planning. I can hear it now: "Honey, this new cabinet system just dwarfs this TV. We need a bigger screen to maintain the esthetic balance of our investment."

Very nice... looks clean. As a speaker builder/aficionado myself I see that you've got (built?) some nice horns. I also note that the big relatively flat cabinet wall close to the speakers is going to give an undesirable early reflection. I'm sure you know you might get better sound by moving the speakers closer towards the couch. And you probably also know that the horns will beam the sound pretty well in any case so reflections are not as much of an issue.

What TV? That's his computer monitor!

I think those three white handles on the ceiling are used to pull down the TV screen when he's tired of surfing the net.

Nice! I've always had a dream to purpose build an audio/video room, but living in a condo it just aint gonna happen. Glad to live vicariously through folks like you.

Great room! How do you people get so smart about everything and do such fantastic work? I probably shouldn't even be allowed here!

Re: My Basement Project is finished! - Photo

Nice Job C-T. Good choice of wood and design and it flows very nice with the room. Your gear is making me green with envy. My basement has a makeshift HT but the room design prevents it from being what I really want. To change it would require removal of a very nice brick fireplace and that is not an option so I will live with imperfection I guess.

Enjoy it!
