    That's exactly how I use this setup. I rarely play games on my projector and rarely watch regular tv on the projector. I will add some more photos, I also have a popcorn machine, hotdog machine, butter dispenser and a beer dispenser machine we use as well.

    I like them a lot, I don't have anything to compare it to though. I haven't installed them yet in my new theater seats because I just bought those. I previously had a L-Shaped Sectional and install 4 of them into it. It was plenty of enough for me. As a matter of fact I didn't like my amplifier's gain up too high because it takes away from the movie at times. But the right amount of rumble during scenes in movies is great. I know some people have Buttkickers and other stuff but I like the aura's for my set up. Plus they are cheap, lol.

    Here are a few more photos in another room, here I show my popcorn machine with the butter dispenser, 32 hot dog roller machine, and a kegerator machine for beer. Sorry the hot dog machine is dirty i just made chili cheese dogs last night.
