    Default Pics of my new polk setup + projector!

    Well, folks, here are the pics of my new setup!
    CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGES:

    First of all, here is my AV shelf with the AVR130, FL8385 and DVD22
    Also notice the little Polk PSW in the back (thats the one i was asking what to do with)


    On the back left of my room is a Polk Monitor 30 as the surround


    Here is the right surround


    And on the desk in the middle of my room is the Infocus X1a:


    Looking towards the front of the room we have the 85" screen and front speakers + sub:






    And how does it look in action? Well here you go:



    And here is an F-16 model im building (no relevance to my home theater setup):


    Any comments are welcomed, thanks!

    Why did you hang the surrounds upside down? Nice setup!

    Bjorn - Nice setup.

    Cfrizz - They are packaging them differently today. This is an approach Mission has used for many years. Bookshelves have flexibility in placement, in all respects.

    The speaker is the same, regardless of position....as placement dictates how you utilize it.

    Why did Polk put a keyhole mounting bracket on rear ported speakers? Will rear porting adversely affect SQ when wall mounted?

    Sweet, congratulations on a nice set up, what a way to watch Letterman as you fall to sleep! One question though, how do you get out of the room? Looks like the left front is blocking the exit.

    LOL that's just an optical illusion i guess. There is actually about 4 feet of space between the left speaker and the rear wall, plenty of space for the door to open :) The left and right speaker are each a few feet away from the rear wall while the center is up against it.

    Nice rig! Also, are you from North Dakota? The "Happy Hooligans" are the ND Air National Guard unit flying the oldest F-16s still flying today with one of the best safety records. Pretty impressive!

    I'm from texas, but the kit came with decals for Happy Hooligans as well as the Oregon ANG. I thought the cowboy in the back looked neat so i decided to use those :) This is my second attempt at building a model kit and i think its turning out okay so far (my first model turned out so bad, that now i just use it for practice for new techniques :))

    ah el paso UTEP...Football....

    I go to college in san antonio and one of the electronics stores here is called Bjorn's. Just thought it would be interesting to see if you were related. The owner is a really stand up guy and quite helpful.

    Good luck at UTEP and keep up the good audio work.

    Yes I would also like to know if wall-mounting rear ported speakers affects sound quality because I have my monitor 30s wall mounted too. Any my monitor 40s and CS1 are both right next to the wall

    Thanks for all the nice comments :)

    Im guessing the only effect that having the rear port facing the walls would be the bass resonse, however, the Monitor30s produce very little bass on their own anyways so that's probably not even much of an issue. Anyway, i have the bass for the suround speakers routed through that PSW10 i got from that circuit city package deal so bass from the Monitor30s probably isnt really a concern, atleast in my case.

    I guess the only way to figure out how much different it would be is to move them a couple feet away from the wall and see how they sound :)
