Big screen inwall
 
Thinking about recessing my bigscreen in the wall. What do you guys think? Making it flush with the wall and putting inwall speakers around it.

Why? Is it an exterior wall?

Why? What size screen are we talking?

Its an interior wall . just want to do it to be different . to make it a cleaner look also will incoperate shelfs in it

Only do this if you can install some in-wall forced ventilation - my 60 inch pioneer runs HOT, HOT, HOT - I would be afraid putting it in the wall would compromise it's internal fan and overheating would shorten the life of the TV.

I say go for it. You shouldn't have a heat problem. I would make the box you are building bigger than the TV in case you want to upgrade to a larger TV. My TV is flush in the wall about my fireplace. I built the box a bit bigger for upgrade purposes and air flow. I am using a cantilever mount so the TV appears to "float" in the space.
