    Any metalworkers here? Here are a few pics of my backyard building. I have a 12 x 36 grizzly lathe, a drill press, and a miller dynasty 200dx for all my welding needs.

    I had an atari when they were first introduced. I wore that sucker smooth out. My nintendo got stolen a few years ago. Here a few pictures of my current home theatre system. I combined all of my remotes into one unit from universal remote.

    The room is probably fifteen by twenty. I have a K2 running 8 ohms mono on each of the B52 Folded horn subs. I have a K2 running 8 ohms stereo into the 4 yamaha cabinets sitting on top of the B52s. One K1 powers 4 bose in ceiling speakers at 16 ohms stereo for rear surround and another K1 runs the same setup front surround also. The powertech 1.1 is bridged mono 4 ohms and runs 4 of the boston acoustic speakers as a center channel on top of my entertainment center. The pioneer A/V receiver runs the JBL home theater speakers attached to the walls as well as powers all of the amps through its rca outputs. I have an 8 channel low z rca to high z balanced converter on the back of the rack. I have way more power in amps than speakers but the crown K series are quite cheap right now from ebay and they are fanless. At the ohms rating I have them hooked up they really do not put out a ton of power. If i had them all running two ohms you probably couldn't stand to be in the room. The way it is now the sound is crystal clear and quite stunning when watching movies. The television is a 40 inch sony xbr5.

    It is a pioneer vsx1015tx. Hell yeah it is overkill and I love it. Our screen size was limited by were we wanted to place the TV. I would have loved to have a huge plasma but the wife decreed that it had to fit inside the entertainment center. I got my way with the amps though:gr_grin: I have a DV7 HP laptop under the TV with 60 gigs of music on it. I think we listen to the "jukebox" cranked up more than we watch the TV. I also record TV shows on my office computer and play them in the living room over my home network through the laptop.

    Teckman02,

    That is the most impressive collection of electronics I have seen.. Very nice.. I see $$$ when I look at all that. Believe it or not, the only video system that we have, (excluding the WII we just bought for our kids this year) is the original ATARI when it first came out, just sittin' in the attic, worked about 7 years ago last time I checked.

    my built in bookshelf

    [​IMG]
    TV is going over on the this wall with all the wiring going over to the AV rack

    [​IMG]

    in the back room behind the rack i am biulding a workbench where some of my computers will go with all of the monitors will be mounted to the walls

    the build in to the right of the rack will be my HiFi area where my 2 channel audio gear will be like turntable, mimidisk, tape deck and so on.
    Once done the HiFi area will be wood paneled with some soft lighting up in the top with some storage in the bottom for albums with wood doors.

    Wow.. I wish I was allowed to do this sort of a thing at home. Gets kinda depressing here.
