I do have recessed canned lighting, however, they are not adjustable. The 6 lights I have in the HT area are on a dimmer system. I also have a wireless remote so I can dim up/down the lighting after a movie so people don't trip over their popcorn.




Perhaps there is probably another model of can light with the same dimensions as the ones you have that can be directed? Get 2 of those so you can direct light on your....M80s?

Really it is not required, the 3 canned lights I have near the front stage are right above the L/C/R and Sub, so they provide plenty of light.

Well, so far the results are favoring Ebony, which suprises me somewhat. For some reason the POLL made me vote also a couple of times, so if I take away my votes here we are:

Buffalo Oak 8
Charcoal Smoke 8
Ebony 12
Warm CherryWood 9
Sorrel Pear 6

I may have Axiom send me some samples. Thanks so much for your input. Keep it coming.

I vote for bare MDF. I'm a purist! Nobody should have to hide behind veneers.

I'm going to go run around outside naked. Look for me on the news. . .

Heh... had to dig out the samples to make sure I was talking about the right one. Yup--too orange for me (or at least the room). Of course, none of the wood in my room matches--I ordered the Vermont Maple after comparing the sample to my entertainment center in bad light!

Oh yeah, and my vote on the tan grill vs. black grill thing? Tan is icky.

I have always liked the Sorrel Pear. If I had it to do over again I would have chosen that finish. I think that it would look good with your trim as well. Good luck in your quest.

Check out Cinnamon Beech and Sorrel Pear. Burnt Sienna grilles are a nice combo with either finish.

thanks everyone, well I have some samples on the way with various grill color combinations. I'm looking forward to see what applies to the WAF.

Here are the results so far, minus my votes...

Buffalo Oak 11
Charcoal Smoke 8
Ebony 15
Warm Cherry 9
Sorrel Pear 8

So anyone could win.
