I got home tonight and in addition to 3 boxes with Axiom all over them was a 4th box, full of wine - Gelfand Vineyards for those wondering.

Depends on which I get to first as to whether the speakers get installed this weekend wink

Looks like I'm OK for the center channel install, but left and right is going to be a bit of a project... I've got 2 studs between each of the usual 16" spaced studs on both left and right install positions - picked up with one stud finder but not another. Because there is a fireplace involved in the equation I don't want to start hacking out wood just for the sake of installing speakers - the studs might actually be doing something... mad

So I finally got around to starting the in-wall install... First, had to figure out where I wanted them to go, leaving room for a larger TV, if ever needed...
https://www.dropbox.com/s/hro40vdo1rkz5tf/IMG_0827.JPG

Then, I had to cut out the drywall - Fridays are good pajama days...

Then, put the templates back up and see what areas I need to work on...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/wj756jsxgpncxd2/IMG_0833.JPG

The center channel was a bit taller than I had room for, so I notched the cross brace so the ears would flip up correctly and pull on the drywall properly.

The offending studs were not load bearing, so I cut out 3-1/3" of the 5-1/2", then blocked the opening with 2 x 4's...

Then drywall, tape and the first coat of compound...

I'll start sanding tomorrow. Time for a Sierra Nevada Torpedo smile Sorry, links work, but displaying the image here didn't work..??!?

Nice pictures, Scott! I like seeing a person with confidence document a project. I've yet to undertake my first drywall project. I've seen a lot of ugly drywall work...


Also, FYI. If you want to link directly to pictures or files in your dropbox -- and avoid having the dropbox branding tacked on in a header -- generate the public link as you normally would and then just add "?dl=1" to the end of it.
