    Forgive the newbie question, but...
    I am in the process of setting up a home theater and am looking for a wall unit/entertainment center for my audio components, DVD/CD/VHS storage, etc. Some of these centers have a dedicated speaker shelf with a door having a grill-like covering. Instinctively, I would think that this type of shelf would alter the acoustics of the speakers in an undesirable fashion. Is this correct (and therefore to be avoided)? --Jeff Krane

    A definite no no. Place your centre channel above or below your TV without any "acoustically transparent" doors being in the way. Take the doors off if you have to.

    Remove the speaker grills so you don't go through both
    The one on the door should then be acoustically transparent
    Try http://www.grillecloth.com/
    for great grillcloth!

    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.
