Hi,
I know exactly what you mean. I had that impression when I was using an Epic 80 - 150 - 600 in a 7.2 configuration with a 56" RPT. The picture was way too small for the sound I was hearing. Moving to a large front projection screen; balanced the equation.

I'm afraid that 47 inches is the biggest that'll fit in that spot, without removing the mains. That'll probably be my next upgrade.

I should be able to make the 50 inch Panasonic TC-P50GT30 tv fit my wall. This looks like probably the best one for around 1 grand. Anybody here have any experience with this one?

I would probably have to upgrade my receiver before I could use the 3D feature.

So, now I've got the hole made. Cat loves it, btw.

The first problem I've run into is I've got 13 inches from front of wall to closest point on heating duct vent. The speaker cabinet would extend into the wall almost 15 inches. I knew it would have to stick out some, but this is the first time I realized it was going to be about 2 1/2 inches. I don't want it against the heat duct. Need about 1/2 inch clearance or so.

Next step is to reinforce the upper and lower part of hole with some 2x2 on the inside of the wall to protect the drywall and build a shelf.

After the speaker is mounted, I need to find some filler wood that will fill the 2 1/2 inch gap on the outside.

The most I could move the speaker up from where it is, is about 1/2 inch, because that's where the next floor up starts with some support lumber.

Is there a way you could modify the ductwork to give you 3 more inches for the cabinet?

You've got a good point there. I'm going to check and see what it will cost to get someone to do this for me. I think it can probably be done.

Here's some pictures of that area.

5 minutes and a hammer should do it.

5 minutes, a hammer and a quiet pair of shoes should do it.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
