I'm also thinking of then moving the front TV to the now empty space, mounted on an extending TV mount attached to the side of the remaining adjoining cabinet, so it can actually be seen comfortably from the couch, and build some storage where the TV was.Has anyone done this? Any tips, tricks, or cautions? I can see and feel a few screw heads inside the cabinet, it's the ones I can't find I worry about. I was a carpenter back in my adult life (now post-adult I guess) and am pretty handy.Thanks in advance!Dougn
In doing so I found the muffled center speaker hidden behind the vinyl covered padding under the TV. That padded strip under the TV came out with two screws and will be discarded, leaving the speaker and some plywood exposed. I will cover that whole area below the TV with some thin open-cell foam covered with black speaker cloth so the speaker can actually be heard. Not sure what they were thinking at PC at the time, but this should at least fix that problem.
Our 2010 2551............I usually hit my head on the rear camera monitor mounted right there already anyway!.......There is nothing structural behind the TV, just a flimsy piece of paneling you could cut out with a utility knife and put some shelf and storage there.....Dougn
Hi RonYours is different than my 2010. There is no solid panel behind our TV. Did yours not come with the TV from PC? Our center speaker and the TV speakers are (were) blocked by the center padded trim. I think it will look good when I get that area covered with a speaker grill. I am also going to replace the glass in the front cabinet doors with a black grill to allow ventilation to those cabinets. That glass looks like something my granny would have had...when I'm done it will look like there are huge speakers there....hmmm....maybe two 12" 3-ways mounted to the doors? No one parking right next to me anymore!Dougn
