...and do they ROCK!

Final inspection! 



Three black ladies.  Thank you Schalk.  These are truly amazing in both sound and looks!



Finally time to sit back and enjoy!

Still think the TV should now also increase in size.

More seriously, these absolutely transformed those Capella's. 

They sounded great before the BW's, now they are awesome.

If I may be so bold to suggest;
I would hang the TV on wall about 30-40 cm higher than it is at the moment (bottom of TV level with top of the main speakers)
then, put the centre speaker inside the cabinet in that open space in the middle
which would leave the the top of the cabinet clean and dedicated to the equipment - you would finally have the space to put a turntable there!  :whistler:

Why stop there? I have a cleaner solution...suggest you sell the centre speaker and give me the third (now redundant) widow.

Thanks for the suggestion regarding the tv fdlsys.  Unfortunately the way that the cabinet was constructed the center doesn't fit into that space you referred to and there are two Rotel power amps down there for the rears and surrounds. 

What is a turntable  :nfi:

I don't think that is a good idea at all?  :ROFLMAO:  Good try though Mr Vleis
