This is my first build so go easy on me. Oh and apologies in advance for the lack of pictures, my work puter blocks image hosting and the like Anyhow here's my recently purchased kit. TV - Sony 46HX923 Receiver : Sony STR-DH810 7.1 3D Front Speakers : 2 x Q Acoustic 1050i Floor Standers Rear Speakers : 4 x Q Acoustics 2010 Centre : Q Acoustics 2000 Sub : Q Acoustic 2070 Player : Sony 3D Blu Ray (came free with TV) Fireplace : Polaris Stone Effect Gas Fire Sattelite TV : Sky HD Tactile Transducer Setup : Skytec SPL1500 (2 x 750watt), ButtKicker LFE which is yet to be purchased. Just bagged a set of 1050i for the fronts so the system will be full 7.1 by the time i am finished, or 7.2 if you include the tactile transducer. So my lounge currently has an old gas fire inset into the outer wall, which looks pants and barely works. My plan is to remove this and build a false breast to house the new fire and all the AV equipment. I will also be completely re-decorating the lounge. I have just grudgingly spent £450 on radiators which i would have preferred putting towards a tactile transducer!!! TV Box, some wood and some plasterboard. Oh and possibly a bit of my spastic dog which is stuck in its cage for 2 months since dislocating its hip You can also see the walls stripped and ready to be skimmed. Speaker boxes + 2070 tucked away nicely in the corner, plus my dogs collar which it had to wear whilst she had stitches in. You may also like my make shift curtain out of an old bed sheet, feel free to adopt that one! Of course i couldnt resist opening it all up and having a play as its going to be a long process getting the room sorted. This is where the TV will be in the room, behind which you can just about make out the old fire place. I have a pal coming tonight to cap the current gas line and extend it so the new fire can be fitted, so will try an get pictures of the process. On Saturday i have another pal coming over to help build the new fireplace out of thermal block and fireboard. The breast will then be built round it and will house all the AV Kit. So i will have the fire at the bottom, then my centre speaker, then my TV, then hopefully my AV kit can go in either glass fronted or flush hidden cupboards above the TV. Of course before the TV gets mounted i will be checking the temps to make sure its not going to get too hot above the fire, but i dont think i will have problems as the fire will be properly vented and i may even throw up some heat reflective material too. More pics and updates to follow over the coming days/weeks.
