#12 looks like something more attainable for the average enthusiast. The screen could be a little bigger, and I'm not sure why you would want lighting sconces right next to the screen (especially when watching a movie like when the picture was taken). Obviously can't see seating, subs, or surrounds, but looks like a pretty sharp setup in general.
Hopefully those sconces are only on when the movie is off (or when taking pictures)

I hate that the screen is set so far back from the front plane of the speakers.

Those KEF towers are pretty nice.

I'm not that big of a bass-head. That to me looks like overkill.

Obviously this system is more about bass than the entire movie enjoyment experience.

Unlucky for some especially his neighbours
Don't think they are KEF towers
Poor little centre speaker doesn't stand a chance and the owner doesn't have a clue

Four S2's, four of them! Somebody really likes bass...

Agreed; they look more like GoldenEar speakers to me, or perhaps DefTech.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

#13 needs to get another tower for a center and go with a projector and screen setup. My only fear would be the screen shacking from all that air going around the room.

Pretty sure those are def tech mythos.
I agree, the screen is too far back and the center seems like a ford escort pulling a 53' semi trailer next to those subs. However, the four S2's don't seem to overtake the room as much as the screen. That makes me think the room is probably really long, and if it's in half of a basement, and the subs are level matched, they probably aren't that nasty. Unless the MV knob gets twisted up to "11"!!!!!
On the other hand, it makes me think of younger days, when friends would load the trunk with subs, and run all the front speakers off of the head unit. Lol...

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I don't know...if the curtains are all the way around, might sound a little dead in the upper frequencies. I only see a tiny bit of foam in the corner...if he's only using that (pretty worthless) for bass absorption, he could have big problems. Agree he doesn't seem to be very knowledgeable when it comes to acoustics. Still, I would love to hear it at least once!

They could be the Mythos I guess. I just immediately think vintage KEF when I see those oval drivers.
