We can't decide which Mantel to get (long story lol ), so I just mounted the center speaker below the TV for now.
These are a couple of pictures of the TV mounted , I took the pictures from where I sit to watch, no strain on neck at all . The TV can tilt 15 degrees so I have it tilted down just abit.

The bigger speakers work the best if your amp has enough power to drive them.
The bigger the better if you like your Low Frequency response. Just raising them off the floor can greatly reduce the deep lows.
Looks like you have a nice setup.
Well been over a month now , still love the set up , no crinks in the neck lol
My only complaint is I had upgraded the receiver from a 5:1 to a 7:2 AFTER I ran the rear wires in the attack and had the insulation blown in , I should on ran 2 more wires too for future installs. Oh well..
You could use one of the old wires as a pull string and pull some new ones, unless you tacked them down.
Does the 7.2 sound better than the 5.1 ? Seems like that would take special programing or some sort of phase sifting.
I don't see the need for anything better than 5.1. People like numbers tho.
7.2 was made for people that have 4 ears, and that have eyes in the back of their head. 4D is nice and used mostly on Mars.
I hope you have a good popcorn popper.
Well the speakers would be in different locations , so pulling the other wires back through with new ones wouldn't help ...
I have listened to other 7:1 and 7:2 systems and it just fills the room with sound.
Even with my 5:1 my Fiance has jumped up off the couch thinking she heard something behind her , I just laugh ...Watching a scary movie and hear a creaking door really gets her jumpy.. lol
Watching the Expendables and when Terry Crews character is blasting away the bad guys with that shotgun , it just flows from the rear to the front .Its awesome.
I just watched Act Of Valor last night and when the sniper was shooting it was like the bullets were flying right by you...
I watched a bit of the Expendables on a 7:2 system and dam it sounded so much better...... even though the movie is in 5:1 Dolby Digital Audio it still sounded awesome , I love bass and with the 2 Subs in the 7:2 system they had everything shacking !!!!!
