Oh yeah baby, just got home with the speakers from the dealer. The screen arrived from Amazon earlier today. Super stoked to get this set up and watch Loki tonight.

I tried uploading the pics, but "File too big".

My Paradigm 800F and 600C arrived today.

Here they are. Hooked them up, and they sound wonderful. Watched Loki with my son. Need to calibrate them, but still way better than my previous budget speakers.

Oh, the smell of new corrugated card board and packing foam in the evening

Not much lighting in the HT room, but I got them in the Espresso grain. Also got my AT screen, so I didn't bother getting a stand for the 600C. I'm going to be building a stage for the speakers to get up a little higher and be recessed into the wall.

And the 600C is a monster, especially compared to my old center channel speaker. Easily 2~3 times the size.

No. It's the Defiance X12. But I've got 2 of them. 1 at the front and 1 in the back. My HT room isn't huge, only about ~1460 cubic feet (10.5' × 18.5' × 7.5'). 2 12s are absolutely enough in there. My wife thinks it's too much, but my son and I absolutely love it.

The one at the back barely fits behind my risers that I built for the 2 rows of seating, so it's a good thing I didn't opt for the 15s.

Some new images. Started setting up my gear to mount the ATS this weekend.

I'll post more pics later of the mounted screen. Also, I wanted to raise the L/R speakers. Couldn't find any speaker stands that were capable of handling the weight (none that I could get easily and quickly anyway), so I started building my own. 5/8" MDF 12" w × 15.75" d × 20" h. I'll fill them with sand:

There is a lid with a 2" hole and a 3mm rubber mat on top. I'm going to sand and paint them as well as add some kind of feet to the bottom. I'll also post pics of the finished product once I'm done.

Man, those speakers sure look nice! Looks like your center is mounted pretty high up in the wall tho. Are there some restrictions preventing you from lining it up with the mains? If you can angle it down a little bit so the tweeter is aimed at your ears that'd be another way to go.

Read his post again. ;) I was going to make the same comment until I read that he is building risers for the mains. That will get them up around the same level as the centre. Should be a great setup when he's all done. :cool:

Oops! Now it makes total sense.
