Many home theater experts contend that the proper place for a center channel speaker is directly behind the screen, as in a commercial theater. Such arrangements require perforated screens that are acoustically transparent but visually reflective, an arrangement that can wreak havoc with some fixed-pixel projectors. Annoying moire patterns can result from the relationship between a projector's image elements and the holes in a perforated screen.

Proficient
It's just not home theater without some kickin' bass, and that's what you get from Proficient's new subwoofers. The S10 model features a front-firing, 10-inch, paper-cone woofer and a 120-watt internal amplifier, as well as anticlipping circuitry, which is said to provide maximum output without audible distortion. Proficient's S8 model (shown here) is similar to the S10, but it houses an 8-inch woofer. Proficient says that the S8 features a driver, amplifier, and crossover network that are optimized for its smaller cabinet and that this more-petite sub has the gusto to provide enough bass output for most midsized home theater rooms. The S10 and S8 cost $450 and $350, respectively.

The right section of the unit features a platform that can accommodate up to a 32-inch-diagonal display and swivels 180 degrees.
