    Hi,

    I'm aiming to locate my HT in the basement of a new house. Some of the unfinished basements I've seen have concrete columns located close to the middle of the basement, which makes it an "impediment" if I want to use the majority of the basement space.

    Anyone know how to get around these columns? Do they affect HT or 2-channel sound? Or to put it another way, how can one integrate these columns into the HT room when finishing the basement so they don't stand out or affect HT enjoyment?

    Thanks!

    Joe

    Joe,

    If you have access to them, take a look at Audio Video Interiors. Some of the dedicated HTs in those magazines make good use of columns as decorative elements within the HT. The AVI website may even have some pictures. It all depends on where they're located but at least it's a start.
