nice. the only thing I would recomend is moving the position of the couch if you have the room. When doing a theater you should divide the room into thirds or fifths. The seating placement should be 2/3 's away from the screen in the room for the best sound. The surroud speakers should also be placed at this location facing the seating. Granted this can't always be done. other then that it's a sweet setup you got there.

ouch. it's still nice though especially for the room you have to work with. Another note for anyone reading this, if your doing a theater room you should try to avoid have equal dimensions like 10x10 or 11x11. Even if it's off by 6" like 10.6/11 it makes a world of difference for the acoustics. This only applies to those building out a room for theater. Most of us aren't lucky enough and do what we can with the rooms we have to work with. I love the set up Dev just wanted to throw some pointers in there for anyone searching for info. I don't even have room in my house for a dedicated theater room but I can still dream about itYes
