I got bored, so I thought I'd post some pictures of my Living Room HT project, so far, just for fun. Cell phone pictures.



Boss inspecting hole cut for W100. I removed the stud in the middle. It was not the same one the TV was mounted to because there's a floor between the 2. It's a tri-level house.



After W100 mounted.



Different view.

Waiting on ordering W22 and installing them next. Position them as far as possible away from TV, meaning removing more studs, but will attempt to strengthen support of what's left. Then an RF remote with electronics mounted in room behind wall for a clean look. Will use a PCV pipe in wall to transfer cables from electronics to TV, and use HT wall plates for speaker wires.

Edit: The wall color is closer to the red/orange in the 1st picture, not the pink that the other 2 look like.

You sealed the cat in behind the speaker, right?

I was wondering why the walls kept meowing.

Not mounting the M22s on the wall as well?

My original intention was to convert my largest bedroom into a small HT, so I ordered the M22's. Then another idea hijacked that one for a while. To upgrade the living room HT first. (it was a HTIB and 26 inch tv. pity.) So I'm in the middle of the hijacking project at the moment. I'll store and use the M22's at a later time.

I forgot to mention, the funniest part of all this with the cat, is after I snapped that picture, I went into another room, then came back only to see the tail end of the cat sticking out of the hole and 2 feet and legs kicking away at the wall trying to get through the hole. I pulled her out by her back legs.
