    I see Polk actually makes a subwoofer enclosure with sub specifically for in-floor/in-ceiling mounting. Crutchfield sells it.

    I know how you guys like pictures, so here's a Visio diagram I did to plan out the HT room for the new house when I pick one out and move this Summer.
    In-wall surround and rear plates, painted a neutral color to match the walls, center channel in a recesed shelf under the TV, also covered with a cloth tomatch the plate speakers, wall plates and outlets for the KEFs and Martin Logan mains in front, sub goes in a hidden spot in the front wall, again covered with grille cloth frame dyed to match the walls.
    I'm looking at doing recessed lighting encompassing the room on an RF controlled dimmer by the touch screen remote.
    The component rack I'm considering doing what looks like built-in shelving next to the wall-mounted plasma screen, but have the rack so it swings out to access the cabling in back for the components, power, speakers which will all be wired in-wall, etc.
    Should keep everything looking tidy and hidden for cabling, aside from the power/signal lines to the floor-standing main speakers unless I put those outlet plates in the floor (carpeted)
    Also using sound damping matts on the walls in in the corners to suppress resonance and reflections. For a 7.1 system on a moderate budget, it should work out well.
    Any thoughts?

    As for the side speakers, unless you plan on using the surround backs as slaves/matrixed in 5.1 situations, then I would place the side speakers slightly rear of the head of the person on the couch. I wish mine was setup that way. Mine is dead even on the side and I had to angle them to the rear of the head from their current position to make them appear like they were 5.1

    However, I can matrix the side and surround backs with mine in 5.1's and it works just dandy.

    yeah the NR906 receiver is Onkyo's flagship model. It can matrix everything to 7.1 for me.
    It also upconverts all sources to 1080P via HDMI which is nice, too.

    I can even play my sega genesis in 1080P! hahaha
