I just ate two to get back some calories after all my cable management today. I finally got my H15 installed. Took all day as I tore apart my rack top to bottom to re-route everything. Had a lot of fun along the way (my wife about died when she came home from lunch and saw it all apart on the floor). Looks pretty darn awesome IMHO.

I decided to use 2 channels per front and put the Integra on bi-amp. As a result I use 2 IC's per L/R (one from surround rear L one from front L, etc) but I think it sounds better after recalibrating via Audysee. Its not like my Integra cant handle my surrounds.

Also have the front 3 set at full range w/ the surrounds @ 60hz and the sub @ 80hz

From this:

To this:

Pretty awesome IMHO. Cant do anything about the rest of the cords in the back, but now if we get a new TV, I can push the rack back flush with the wall with NO problem at all. :smile:

P.S. Looks like with the new apartment we will end up with a Plasma rather than a PJ. Too much ambient light issues. Looking at a Panasonic 60" S30, ST30 or GT30 model. Wont be for a bit though as we gotta save up the cash.

Gotta love winning the LCD v. Plasma battle (I hate any refresh rate over 60hz as it tends to add too much motion blur when playing Halo or watching movies IMHO).

Looks like a NICE smelling system too! :lol:
If you've seen any pictures of my system you'll find I love spaghetti by the cables in the back ground :( When I rebuild another set-up I am cleaning up the cables...

Man that looks really nice. One of these days I'll have to figure out the behind the rack clean up trick. It always starts with good intentions.

I really like the audio shelves you are using. What kind of rack is that?

I honestly dont remember off the top of my head. My x got it with the DLP at Best buy. I want to say the brand is Bush.

Next up for me are upgrades to a Sunfire 450/5 \:D/ and possibly seeing if I can aquire a set of tube amps for my setup upstairs w/ the HK :-$

Well we moved... and I got new stuff, so here's the updated equipment list and some pics:

Equipment List:
TV: Panasonic 60" ST30 Plasma
Receiver/Pre-amp: Integra DTR 5.9
Amplifier: Carver AV-705x
Fronts: Polk LSi 15's modded with a db840 sub (crossover upgrade next)
Center: Polk LSi C
Surrounds: Polk LSi F/X (wall mounted)
Sub: Polk PSW125 (being replaced eventually and moved to the office)
Misc Gear: Xbox 360, Samsung BP-1600 blu ray player, Uverse DVR, Pioneer laserdisc player

Here are some pics of the cable management in the rack. I managed to keep ALL the power, HDMI, IC's and Speaker wire totally separate. Took a bunch of doing, but its done for a LONG LONG LONG TIME.

And here are the finished pics, including the LSi F/X's being mounted
