I'm moving into a different house and am having an enterntainment center built to house an 8' projection screen, my CS1000 center speaker and other equipment. The following link is where I got the idea. I'm making my own customizations and will have a 24" component and DVD storage cabinet on each side of the screen area with my RT3000's to the left and right of those. Total width including speakers will be ~ 14'
The current plan is to have the center channel fully enclosed in a base cabinet which will be approximately 25" high. I'm planning to have the builder leave 1/2" of space around the entire speaker so I can pull it out if necessary.
Seeing as though the CS1000 has a ported sub built in, are there considerations with regard to cabinet design; i.e. fully enclosed vs. vented in the back that will affect the sound quality?
Also, the rubber feet have all disappeard off the bottom of the speaker. Any recommendations on good replacements?
Any comments, advice, suggestions are welcome. I don't want to have regrets after it's all put together.
