I just figured you were setting up a "Gentleman's Club"/home theater room. Built in poles! You are already part way there.

I have the same problem, its the only thing that really pisses me off about my setup, BUT I will say since I got the QS4's it's not quit as bad as I feared. And mine are in line of sight to the sitting area.

I had to build a box around my pole because the person who built the house put some plumping right next to it, so I wanted to give it a cleaner look.

if you want to eliminate a pole,you can use a flitch plate.what that is,is two peices of steel that would sandwich your existing beam,and the steel has a bolt pattern so you can drill through and support the house and then remove the pole-usualy the poles are 8' apart so you can get a 16' opening.if youre not handy dont try this your self,get a price from a local contractor,if you can get it done pretty reasonable its nice to have the open space
