    Well it is almost done, I still want to move the cable box to the network area in the basment and distribute it through out the house, along with the DVD player. There will be a new TV arriving this spring(shh dont tell the wife) a Toshiba 51 inch wide screen. We are still decorating as we just got done building the house 2 months ago, along with getting married. I am a Master Electrican so all the wiring was done by me. It isn't much, but for now it will do, the wife says that when I finish the basement I can move all my stuff down there and do as I wish. There are wires in the ceiling for 2 more speakers, I ziged zaged wires all around on the rough, so that after we got the furniture set I could put the surrounds in wherever, but I think for now I will leave it alone. I know alot of people dont like the inwalls, but these Paradigm SA-10's are nice. I got a pair of the 150's dipoles, but they were not allowed to be installed(WAF factor). Enjoy-

    Nice rack! [​IMG]
    Thats probably an old joke on this forum.
    Anyway, Do you adjust the balance to compensate for the mains not being the same distance either side of the TV? I would of thought it would sound a bit odd otherwise.
    Looks pretty good though, enjoy it.

    They really are not as far off as they look in the pic, I did use my SPL meter for all the speakers. I had to turn the rears up a little bit, with the room being open in the back area, I am losing some sound. The SVS less than 10 feet away makes up for the rears[​IMG] When the big screen goes in this spring, the 2 fronts will be on each side of it, it is all figured out in my head, its just trying to figure out how to sneak a 51" TV in the house. I know once it goes in she will love it like she did everything else.
