Almost there.  Thanks everyone for the advice. This project has taken me almost 2 years to complete. Although, I only spent the last four weeks actually working on it. I ended up using the spalted pecan on the front with walnut everywhere else.  The splines are cocobolo.  I built the sealed box out of 3/4 MDF and then veneered the wood to 1/4″ and bookmatched it.  After the last coat of lacquer, I’ll install the two Dayton 12″ Ultimax drivers.  On a recent Costco run, I noticed the Denon AVR S760H.  After doing a bit of research, this is the receiver I picked.  Mostly because it has a 3 HDMI 2.1 ports that actually work and the PS5 that I still haven’t managed to get my hands on will work with it.  Lastly, there’s the amp.  My preference is to go with the Behringer NX3000D but I don’t know when they’ll be in stock given all the shortages.  Can I get away with the NX3000?  Do I need DSP?  I should mention that my setup is decidedly not ideal.  No dedicated home theater.  My 86″ TV is on a wall in the middle of an open floor plan with a loft. 

Next up (this one won’t take 2 years) is to use the rest of the pecan for the media cabinet, center, left and right speakers.  I’m just not sure what I want to do there.  Do I want to build some tower speakers? Do I want to hang them on the wall next to the TV?  What should my center channel setup be?  I’ve got enough pecan left over to do something creative.  I just don’t know what that should look or sound like yet. Open to suggestions.
