@hawk-eye, definetely radical but if I go with this set, which I really want to do then the speakers have to go. The cabinet I have is huge, heavy and solid oak, not a veneer. I bought it in 92 for 2k. It is 52.5" wide in the TV hole. I've looked at them closely in the store and I can unscrew the backs to double check the wiring. Should only be speaker wire. I'll run it for a month or 2 to make sure it's stable before I touch it. My wife is gonna poop. Darn Sony, why didn't they put the speakers on bottom like Samsung????
