    I finally got the cabinet together with help from my niece and sister.:) I'm almost finish with the setup I just need to add the surround speakers next, but I need to buy some stands for them. I want to tell you guys I'm so DAMN happy with the setup. Everything sounds so fantastic and looks darn SEXY.:D Oh yeah those wires on the right will be gone soon. I still have to build a desk and bookshelf.:mad::D so I still have some stuff on the floor. The blue sheet on the floor is there so I can put stuff together. Feel free to comment on the setup or suggestions.
    Here are a few pics:

    Awesome, great show of generosity.

    Out of curiosity, what kind of TV stand/cabinet is that? I'm looking for something simple and straightforward like that.

    Okay, good.

    Was FEMA any help? After hurricane Charlie, when I lived in Florida, they were no help at all. We didn't have huge losses, but the guy was kind of an a$$. After Jean and Frances, we didn't bother with contacting them.

    Yeah, FEMA pretty much gave up on Florida that year. They were good for supplying blue tarps, though. But then the next year (2005) they got hammered with storm damages. 27 named storms including Katrina and Wilma.

    They me helped a bit psbfan9. I am grateful that they even helped me. Like you said not everyone got help.:( I remember when Katrina happened and they were hammered in the press for not acting quickly. I called right away so maybe that's why I got something. I lost alot of priceless things and FEMA didn't even cover half but to get help in these times is very rare and I'm glad and grateful I got help from them. I'm very grateful to my friends here at audioholics more than anything.

    Man, that's great! You guys that helped out by giving away your own things and sending them to Afterlife are true gentleman.

    The connections and caring between people who have never even met eachother, is a testament to how good this forum can really be when it gets down to brass tacks.

    Bravo to all of you.

    I'll take you up on that! [​IMG]

    I'm helping coordinate a speaker and subwoofer GTG in SE Pennsylvania the second week of April. Your location says "Central PA", so you're definitely within driving distance. The link is on AVS if you want to check it out. Last count there was room for 3 more -- and afterlife was considering it as well -- so you'll get to meet a few of us.

    Mark Seaton (Seaton Sound) and Jeff Permanian (JTR Speakers) are going to be their again, and Tom V from PowerSound Audio might as well, so you get a chance to meet a couple of industry luminaries as well.

    I got a pair of nice 36 inch speaker stands from a Craigslist seller($20.00:eek:) for the surround speakers yesterday.:) I should be able to set the truly beautiful klipsch(macddmac) speakers up next week when I get my new couch, hopefully. I will post pics when I have them setup. I can't wait!!!!:cool:
