      I completely disagree. I would hate those seats, which is why I don't like going to the theatre. I'll take a couch ANY day. Allows me to spread out and my g/f to lay on me if she wants. Not a fan of projection, either. To each their own.

      My friend and his buddy had Yamaha recievers with same JBL speakers. He moved, so for a second I thought it was his new setup in the new house.
      anyway...... Now I wonder if Yamaha had some specials with JBL's at one point, or it was somewhere recommendede that the JBL sound great with the Yamahas.
      What kind of sub do you have hooked-up , and what model is that Yamaha?

      Well, I used to work at Best Buy and at the time....about 5 years ago, the audio dept. guy is who suggested all the stuff I bought, I compared the JBL sub to the Yamaha I have, and there was no comparison, the Yamaha sounded way better. I have everything hooked up with Monster XP wire and it sounds unbelievable. I just don't get people that spend like 5,000+ just on a pair of speakers, I cannot imagine it sounding any better, and I bet it would be next to impossible to tell.
      Anyway, the sub is a dual 8", model YST-SW160...

      I dont wanna make this a he said she said thread. But after I bought by yamaha YST-SW215, I helped a friend together his system and he got a great deal on a JBL E-250P and that thing just blows the socks of the SW215. Its not boomy...its very crisp and clear in delivering the low freq. THe yamaha rattles when trying to deliver some of the same sounds.

      I just cannot fathom spending that kind of money on a speaker.

      That's why you wait for year end sales and save a bunch of money

      Here's what I posted in the Home Improvement forum before this forum existed. Since then, I've upgraded to a SVS 16-46PC+ sub. I love my setup!

      The first picture is a before shot. I measured the
      height of the wall and the TV and decided how high to
      build the stand. This picture just shows the TV
      sitting on the rough stand I built for it.

      The second picture shows the big hole in the wall.
      I've attached the stand and started to frame out the
      shelves on the side. That's my brother-in-law helping me

      The third picture shows the progress as I added the
      drywall...

      ...and the fourth picture shows the TV and
      equipment in place.

      The last one shows it with some
      stuff on the shelves, and a final piece of trim added
      around the stand. My wife moved all that stuff off
      the shelves and put more "decorative" stuff there
      after I took these pictures, but I think it looks good
      either way.

      There's also built in speakers on the back wall and mounted speakers on the side (7.1 channel surround.) All wiring is behind the walls, there are ZERO wires showing. I'm pretty happy with it!

      stick with your best buy specials. if you can't imagine it getting any better, great for you, be happy.
      But if you ever go to an actual high end audio store and listen to probably anything in the store, TRUST ME you will hear the difference.

      I did exactly that and heard NO difference. I like my Athena Tech/Best Buy setup better than the Paradigm stuff I heard at a dealer and I walked out the door from BB with a 700w 7.1 Yammy receiver, 2 floorstanders, 2 rears, 1 center, a 10" powered sub and cables for $1100 bucks.

      Yeah, no problem at all. I left some space on the bottom (near where the TV vents are) for that purpose, and to run cables around back there. I've had it for a year now with zero problems.
