Well my Good-Man I just had AT&T up-date my Internet Service.
I now have 50 MBPS and that meant they had to run a new higher-end cable to the house from the street.
Was no big deal at to be honest as I was here ans watched the 3rd party vendor do it.
They simply dug down on both sides of my driveway and ten went under it with the new cable.
Also I had underground drain-lines two years ago ran under my sidewalk with what's called, Pop-Ups in the yard to allow water drainage from the gutters.
I also watched those guys do that and it went smooth.

I only mention the above as it is really done all the time so your guys or a 3rd party vendor would do it for them if necessary.
So you might still wish to give that some additional consideration.

Are you by chance running the Sony ES5000 Laser projector ???
That's the other unit I am looking at but have been told by numerous members over on AVS that it would be way over-kill.

Hey buddy, I still say if it were me and it could be done I would have that Split-Unit in the furthest rear part of your HT.
Then, no noise at all to where you sit.
And it will certainly cool the HT down easily.

Hey don't give up easily as what we might think is a big-deal probably to the professionals it is not.
