    my first attempt at an install with minimal wires on display, in fact its hard to spot wires from the front.
    however now tv is on wall wish i had gone for 42" display:(

    Great looking install.:smashin:

    The plasma looks just right, a 42" would probably look a bit much, although if it will fit on the same mount why not.:devil:

    Love the speaker brackets, are they toggle switch plates?

    nice install :smashin:

    I think a 42 would look ok, i have a 42" pio above my fireplace, but it'll extend above you L & R speakers and you might lose the panning effect.

    What speakers are they?
    I'm looking for a new set of small sats to go with my screen :D

    Rear speakers and sub. Speaker system is from an all in one pioneer
    dv/333 system about 1 1/2 yrs old. Sound is good but not mindblowing, though as i live in a semi detached house I cant crank it up too much as I think of the neighbours (other side of fireplace)

    Center speaker

    Speaker brackets made from screwfix chrome blank plates and speakers mounted with 5m bolts left over from tv bracket (bought 5m nuts to lock in place) all drilled out by me
