    This one im guessing is rather tough....

    I may have an install for a friend but will want everything as discrete as possible. Now the only place reall for the screen is on a supporting (solid brick) wall. So.... are any of the inwall designs i have read about quite shalllow? What sort of depth are we talking about? I obviously want to remove as little of this wall as is humanly possible!

    Are any of the flat speakers actually up to the job yet...... the nxt panel jobbies? Cost isnt a big consideration at the moment so were flatties available (even if they cost some) that sounded half respectable, that would be a promising road to follow.

    Any thoughts, please let me know

    Build a false wall over the existing wall.

    If you really wanted to you could go a few foot or so out (if the room is big enough) and get full size cabinet speakers behind and all the kit can appear sunken" in too. Leaves loads of opportunity to do trick lighting and recessed DVD storage etc etc

    Thanks guys,

    I had thought about a false wall, the only problem is that the door into the room is also on this wall so that is more difficult.....

    im going to have to look a bit into flat speakers me thinks.....

    Oh that's a shame mate. You could do just a section of false wall, sort of like how a fireplace usually has a foot of extra wall to the left and right of it but will probably work out to be way more effort!!!!

    Good luck, and if you can't do flat speakers Gallo's look good on any wall :smashin:
