Another vote for leaving the stair risers as they are, but I think you should add a pond with an alligator under the stairs for motivation.

This is shaping up to be the Best Theater EVER!

I vote for alligator pond, too.

I'm more of a sulphuric acid kind of person. It leaves no evidence.


Uhh, that's what I've been told.

I think I'm going to have a tiny system under the stairs. I could have my nice big system out in the open for me, and then if I invite a friend over for multiplayer gaming, they can be sent to the tiny stair room. But at least it would be a good excuse to get some M0s, right?

Okay, so that would be way down on the list, but I have to use that space for something more fun than just storing my vacuum and stuff, right?

In regards to the concrete ledge that runs around the perimeter of the basement, is there a good reason to not put one of the horizontal EP800s on it behind the screen, even though the screen won't be acoustically transparent? Does the fact that it's a subwoofer and not a normal channel make it a non-issue? It would be better if I could put it up and behind so I have more room for center channel and screen. Just curious.

I think it depends on how far the drivers are from the screen material. If they are to close it will probably push that part of the screen in a and out a little which might be noticeable while veiwing. In my apartment when I had my EP500 about 3 feet in front of my seat I could feel it pushing air past my legs though at that distance I doubt it would have been noticeable pushing against a screen. I think even an AT screen might have the same problems up close given the amount of air I imagine the EP800s push. Only way to know for sure is to try it out.

Not sure if it would works but I imagine the drivers could be pointed up if normal positioning is to close.
