    Brent,

    Would like to see those pictures. I actually went out today and got the speaker wire. When I step back in this room, I keep wanting to do a 7.1. But i almost think that perhaps a 7.1 would be overkill in a 17' Deep x 12 1/2' Wide room? Wouldn't the surround get blended from the sides to the back surrounds?

    Jack,

    I sent you pictures via email.

    As far as room config, mine is 12 x 38-ish, with the theater taking 20 ft. The surrounds are @ 17' with the rear center @ 20'. If I could have mounted the surrounds farther forward, I think 17' would be just fine. The theater room doubles as a living room and we like the big area for the ankle-biters.

    I certainly think the rear-center fills the 'hole' in the back. I think 2 rear's, mounted equadistant would be at least, if not better as, 1 rear.

    I will admit, the mounting box is not 100%, but it works. I ran the wire in the ceiling, so there is a hole above the box. But, it should come down with little effort/repair, should the time come.

    Hope this helps

    Brent,
    Got the pictures. Thanks. I'm in the process of building this home theater. The room wiil double as a theater and lounge. So I think that I'll be safe with the surrounds at 16'. I be posting pictures up on our family website soon.
