    First of all, let me just say that I?m pretty green with regards to RPTV?s, so this question may seem silly. I?ve spent about a month reading info on this forum and have managed to gain just about enough confidence to purchase the Tosh 50H82. Now here?s my dilemma: I built a new room in the basement for my HT. In this room I also built a recess into the wall for the TV. Since I have a 9 month old ( who?s into EVERYTING!!), I decided to put cabinetry above the TV to house the receiver, DVD player, etc. I didn?t have this TV picked out at the time I built the room, and I?m afraid that I did not leave myself enough room between the top of the TV and the bottom of the cabinetry for the center channel. I have 54-1/4? from the floor to the bottom of the cabinets. The 50H82 is 48-3/4 high (casters removed). This leaves me only 5-1/2? left over for the center channel. I could fit a small center like a Klipsch sc-1 or a NHT sc-1, but would prefer something a little larger. I wouldn?t mind a center channel stand in front of the TV, except I would fear for its life once the baby discovered it. My question is this: Is there enough room behind the 50H82?s front access panel to build an enclosure to house a decent sized (5? or 6? drivers) center channel. There seems to be some amount of space between the front panel and the projectors, but I have no idea how much. I suspect some of you have had this panel removed and may be able to answer my question. This enclosure would simply be a 5 sided box (maybe some type of lining) and some stout brackets to mount it to the front MDF surface of the TV. Here?s another question. Assuming that there?s enough width / depth to do this, what if any negative side effects could come from having this speaker so close to the projectors??

    Not in my 42H81, by a long shot.
