Do you /will you use the grills or leave them exposed?

I tend to prefer the open shelving look for movies/books/music/games. I'm just imagining a library where all of their books are behind doors.

I think I'll leave them exposed unless younger kids are coming over. The glue on the grills isn't what it used to be, so they've started coming off at the edges. I'll have to try to fix that sometime. The grills from my older speakers are still going strong. It's just the more recent purchases, so I wonder if that's something Axiom will be addressing. In any case, under normal circumstances, I prefer the look with the grills off.

For watching a movie, I'll just turn all of the lights off:



If I want a little light for distracted entertainment, I can do this for now:



My dad wants to put LEDs in the glass blocks, but I'm not that ambitious yet. Some kind of accent lighting is in order at some point, though.

Looking at that ep800 lying on the floor, I'd also be concerned about parties and drunk adults, though I don't know how useful a grill would be in that situation.

All in all it looks like things are finally coming together nicely. smile

Slightly over 18' wide. There are 23" between the wall and the very back corner of the speaker.

Thanks. About what I have now behind mine. Thought I'd ask.
I'd love to have 6' more (50% more) width. Next time.

It's always a pile of compromises, isn't it? I sacrificed space in the bedroom for more space out in this open room. I figure I'm only in the bedroom to sleep, so it seemed like the wise move.
