    Hi All,
    I am setting up a nice upgrade for us with an Onkyo TX-NR777 receiver, with Polk Audio speakers from the TSi series. We also want to include a phonograph and older VHS player - plus the satellite box. In the illustration, everything is shown at proper relational size. I will be custom building the cabinet for this, plus the two speaker stands, or speaker shelves. The stands make more sense because the back ported TSi200 speakers should be 5-10" from the wall. One stand will be placed directly on top of the subwoofer, as shown.

    Our living room really has a single wall to work with, and a space up to 63-64 wide. In this pic, the subwoofer pushes that a couple more inches to 66, which is the max. I found that moving the sub outside the cabinet made for a more centered appearance and easier build.

    Do you have any suggestions on a better layout, or see any potential problems with this layout? I would appreciate any input you can offer.

    Polk Tsi 200 front speakers / CS10 center speaker / PSW10 10" subwoofer + Onkyo Atmos speakers

    Thanks, C home_theater_idea.
