And, most importantly, it all sounds awesome.

On a related subject the front wall was beige like all the others before i started- the projector works *much* better with a dark wall.

I'll add some pics of the hall cupboard which houses the amps and HTPC when its a bit more presentable.

You'll have to ignore my toddler and her 3 tonnes of toys.

Very nice. I like the before & after pics to show how you improved the setup.

That is one very large sub.

That looks great, especially with the new wall color. What kind of sub are you running?

It might just be the angle, one of the pics looks like there was no door. Did you build an entire closet?

The closet with the kit in it isn't in any of the photos, the door near the rear-right speaker is the front door of our house.

The sub is a 4 ohm 15" CerwinVega Vega car audio sub from about 14 years ago... I had the box made at a kitchen shop from 38mm MDF covered in black laminex. Its sealed and measures 1000mm x 500mm x 500mm on the outside.

The box could be half the size and not make much difference to its output response.

Its powered by a built-from-scratch 300WRMS 'Playmaster' kit amp from a similar vintage from one of the australian electronics magazines at the time (Silicon Chip, EA, etc)
