    2 in wall speakers as center channel

    I was planning on mounting the screen to the wall, maybe offset by a few inches. Plans changed when I found a good deal on a Polk LSiM 706C that I have mounted just below the screen. Thanks for the reply.

    2 in wall speakers as center channel

    It's been a long time HTF, nice to be back. Finally got a house that I can have a dedicated theater room. Here come the questions. I would like to have in wall speakers across the front mounted behind the projector screen. Mounting the center channel might be a problem as there is a stud right...

    Dexter Season 5

    Even with that lens there is no way he had enough light to capture an image from shore to the boat. Also lenses that long are very heavy and he wouldn't be able to hold it steady enough to get a clear shot without a tripod.

    The Baja Peninsula on Motorcycle

    Go to advrider.com. There are many baja ride reports and many people there that can help with planning and possibly vehicle storage.

    In search of a good web host & web design software

    Front Page, Expression Web all result in "broken" pages in browsers other than Explorer. With the number of users that are on or going to browsers such as Opera, Firefox and Chrome I wouldn't risk my business losing sales due to a site that doesn't load correctly due to "instant website"...

    The eyeliner, the scene when he had long hair, I think Richard was a pirate sailing aboard the Black Rock. :D

    We saw the foot from a boat previously and now we see the back of the statue from somewhere inland.

    What words that people mis-pronounce that drive you nuts?

    It's not spelled cue-linary it's spelled culinary.

    Make your own pizza - the Holy Grail?

    I've used large tortilla wraps to make pizza on the grill. Use the upper rack for a nice crunchy crust. Also when using regular dough drizzle some EVOO on the outer ring of dough before baking for a nice golden color.

    Make your own pizza - the Holy Grail?

    Mix muenster with mozzarella in equal parts, I like to use 2/3rds muenster and 1/3 mozz for more flavor. Also, after you spread the sauce out sprinkle some oregano followed buy a light layer of parmesan then add the cheese mix.

    Metallica / Ice Cream / Taxes

    I thought CD sales increased when Napster first started due to people being able to find new bands and sample music. So was Napster really a bad thing? I have to agree with Dave, I have not bought a new CD in about 10 years because of the "focus on the non paying customer" mentality. I...

    When did the standing ovation become meaningless?

    There is a local entertainment venue that brings about 4 or 5 Broadway shows per year. The last show they brought was "Chicago" and I thought it was horrible. No dancing during "Cell Block Tango", Matron Momma had a bad voice, Roxy was played as a child instead of just naive. There was...

    New Bike

    Don't mean to threadjack but I passed the test. A score of 0 is perfect and 21 means you failed, I only got 1 point for going a fraction of a second too slow through the 2 turns portion of the test.

    New Bike

    Thanks. I have the battery tender and will be installing the permanent wiring for it this weekend. I have a garage to keep it in but my neighbor has offered me some space in his heated garage. This is going to be the longest winter ever.

    New Bike

    Actually I just took delivery of an 09 Vulcan 500. It's my first bike so I decided to keep the engine size in check. Eventually I'll upgrade to a larger bike. So far I've put 38 miles on and I'm taking the safety course this weekend. I will have to pack it up for winter soon though. :frowning:

    The Dark Knight (2008)

    Down the toilet? For what? Until full details come out I won't pass judgement. If he physically harmed them I think he would have been charged and arrested but he was just questioned and released, most likely a verbal argument.

    Men who hate grilling

    Here in New England I grill all year and you can only grill 10 months in California? Oh thats right you wear parka's in 50-60 degree weather. ;) Snow sizzles as it hits a hot grill.

    Kind of a personal question - Have any of you tried online dating services?

    I know this may not be the answer you're looking for. What do you do for recreation? If you're going to spend money looking for a companion why not do something you enjoy while looking. Maybe a local amateur bowling league, hiking, table tennis club? Or take up a new hobby. Much more...

    Mailbox Hit.. Again!

    Funny you should ask. About 2 weeks after I bought the house I get home to see a note stuck to the front door. Some girl was driving down the road when a car coming from the other direction drifted on to her side causing her to swerve and her side mirror brushed and dented the original mailbox...

    Mailbox Hit.. Again!

    I am convinced the plow guys aim for my mailbox. I bought my house from a guy that many people in the town didn't like very well. I don't think the plow guys know he doesn't live there anymore. It's has been knocked off three times this winter and now the only thing holding it on are some old...
