I might as well list my other rooms. My office is my listening room. It is about 1400 cubic foot with sloped walls (top of a cape cod house).

Homemade 6.5" OB speakers
Avent 4002's
Stubby sonosub (until I have to give it away)
Sony STR-D2070

All sound comes from my PC

I also have a Bose something-or-other I use as PC speakers but I don't like them.

My living room is more for ambient music and TV watching.

Homemade ported full range speakers
AV123 X-sub
Adcom GFP-555 pre-amp and tuner
PSAudio model 2 amp
Oppo 970 HD DVD player
Tatung 17" LCD (very well hidden)

I normally don't mention this, but all my cabeling is half exposed and I have really nice pretty custom cabling done by Sound-AV. I had trouble running a hidden subwoofer cable and didn't want to drill through my floor. Anthony of Sound-AV made a custom cable using thin microphone cable. It hides real easy and sound great - even though 6 feet of it are 6 inches from a lamp's power cable.

Finally (for now), my bedroom is where all my old stuff goes and waits to get sold on Craigslist.

27" Sony CRT television
Sherwood 2-channel amp
Unmarked Dual bookshelf speakers (came free with my Onkyo amp and I actually like them)
Yamaha YST-SW160 subwoofer
Ancient Teknic casette tape player

Thanks for the kudos.

The sub cable presented an interesting challenge: when you can't go through the wall or under the floor -- thin is the only option. Luckily Canare makes some excellent microphone cable, while not ideal, definitely is up to the task for a subwoofer signal. Mic cable is is designed to reject noise really well, which was definitely a requirement here.

Here's some pics of Boomie's setup:

Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of the sub cable, but trust me, you can barely see it :D
