Here's mine, kind of a mess. I still have not upgraded to a 360/Wii/PS3 but i'm sure i'll get around to it so for now it's Original modded xbox's with big drives.

Not much, 37in Vizio TV. Yes there is a support post behind the TV so the top does not fall on it. It was moved once for our old CRT TV and I had to remove part of it so the Vizio would fit.

Top left cubby holds our chipped 1TB HDD 360(with the pin strip faceplate)m under it is the HD cable box, to the left is where our Wii normally sits, but atm it is at my parents, to the right is our VIOP/internet modem, in the back left corner I have a My Book HDD hooked up for movies that we use the xbox for*.

Right cubby holds our Sony Blu Ray player, my ghetto shelf is supported by 4 shot glasses, that shelf holds our land line phone base, a Netgear WNR3500v2 router, zippos and our Blu Ray/DVDs that are not kept in binders(5 binders of DVDs in the cabinets under the TV)

Not the best but not the worst set up out there. Going to try for a simple 5.1 surround sound setup with tax returns though.

*I'm slowly converting my favorite movies to xvid so I can watch them at work via external drive and not take up a ton of space on a HDD or in my laptop bag.

Update on the Wii front.

Fake fire place for the stand(got married in front of the fireplace and yes it is secured for tippyness). Our new 32inch Vizio TV, HD cable box on the left(again it is secured so it wont fall.) and the Wii behind the tv on the right side.

Talked it over with my wife and we decided we would use the Wii in there for netflix streaming and the light gaming that we do with it.

THE COMMAND CENTER!!!

I want to get either the PX5 or Sound Blaster Omega head set.
It would look perfect inbetween the PS3 and Xbox.



The left monitor is hooked up HDMI to my PS3 and the right monitor to the Xbox360
My Computer is hooked up dual monitor DVI to both monitors so I can switch my PC screen or use it with dual monitor.
This is an old house and its got thick plaster instead of sheet rock, so it would of been a huge construction trying to
hide all those wires.



I dont have a nice sound system but these ASUS 25" have their speakers on the top of the monitor facing back.
So the sound echos from the wall and the sound is loud and clear.





This used to be my main gaming TV, but now I'm no longer the owner of it and she gets to watch what ever she wants. :)

For my Consoles I'm getting a nice wireless headset.
Dont really care about blasting the sound since I have room mates and
I dont want to bother them since most of my gaming in done at night.
I have been using my Creative Fatality head set and hooking it up on the
sound out on the monitors but when I play Xbox at night .
I have to hook up the Fatality head sets and then use the mic on the original
xbox headset. So i Have to wear both and its a pain int he ass.

For my TV, I could care less..lol

I hate wire manage ment. I have my game systems going to an hdmi switch box then into my %.1 reciever then outto tv from receiver and its a mess of cablining. I'm reluctant to use zip ties because it always seems I need access to a cable as soon as I zip tie it.. been thinking of feeding my cables thru the wall and and hiding them from sight that way. upgrading to a 7.1 sound syste,m yay more wires to try to hide. A person not familiar with my set up would go nuts trouble shooting a cabling issue.

wait...you don't want to zip tie them because you always end up needing access to the cable, so you want to put them in the walls instead? lol

i totally understand your hate of wire management though..my shit is a mess.

Get some of these. You can remove them and reuse them. No tools required.;)

Now I'm finally doing the man cave justice but I'm doing everything myself and I'm NO carpenter, but if you don't try you'll never learn I guess
5-1.jpg


About 60% done now, drywall needs to be finished and component holes need finishing also, then paint and add some base board trim with some crown molding and maybe it will be close. Haven't changed any components other than ditching the 65" dlp to a 60" plasma a few months ago. And still kicking the Infinity's and the velodyne as speakers. Wall is 8foot wide and comes out 2foot still a lot of work to do though.

And sorry for the shitty BB picture.

Nice, with no media center it seems to really open the room. How deep is that false wall? and how are the shelves supported?

Thanks man, and yeah I'm going for a clean look for the room and the wall's 2 foot deep so on the left side my server will be behind the wall and on the right side I'm thinking about putting the Sub back there and make like a small door on one of the sides so I can get back there if need be.

And I built the shelves into the wall studs and just spaced and modified the studs on the the bottom part of the wall so I could accommodate the shelfs, used all 2x4's. Right now I've invested about $80, and all I have left to purchase is Crown molding and baseboards and a gallon of tan paint to match the other walls, so it's definitely on the cheap.

Very Nice. Is the wall unit with the matching coffee table custom made? It looks really nice. I love the CM Stacker. Wish I had one.

That looks good. I would recommend mounting the L/R speakers to the cabinet instead of the wall, though.

sides of the cabinet mounted to the wall are openable, more shelves for dvds etc, so therefore I can't mount speakers to it ;)

I made it to practice some welding and cutting metals quite some time ago. I've gotten way better since but this thing seems to work enough to keep me from buying a real stand.

Ignore the welding on the pipes, I didn't know what I was doing and ended up using blind rivets to support it. :eek:
Ignore the rat's nest also, I keep changing the setup so much I don't bother with wire management. Just try and hide them from where I sit.

I was actually ambitious to make it adjustable when I started but eff that. :p

Let's see. Living room is a Sharp Aquos 60 inch lc-60le832u and has the PS3 hooked up to it and my bedroom is a Sharp Aqous 60 inch lc-60le632u and has the Xbox 360 hooked up to it. That way if the wife is watching one of them I can still jump on the other and not be forced to watch whatever garbage she is watching (The House Idiots of New Jersey)
