Just thinking about moving those around even on furniture sliders makes my back hurt... one of the reasons I can't get anything much heavier than my LV12R

(Probably a good thing for my wallet, lol)

However, I bet they will put the average actual cinema/theater to shame.

Haven't checked inside the boxes but Enrico told me that my FV18s shipped with movers blankets for hardwood floors. They should make moving around the subs a lot easier, although I don't plan on moving them very far from where I have the movers put them anyway.

No movers blankets, I said furniture mover pads. In your case you said you had carpet so I asked Lynn to put two pairs of pads for carpet so you can move the two subwoofers around at the same time

I can see in the picture you have a pair on each box so you are good to go!!!

As a side note, @JimWilson is going to officially review, test and torture the FV18. We are just waiting for the new batch of HX1000XLR3 amps to arrive (around two weeks) to send him a unit for review.

The movers will have blankets, just make sure they use them. i think wires were crossed with Enrico but shouldn't be a problem.

Oh dear, you misunderstood, Enrico. Here is your response to what I said in an earlier email to you:

Grey,

We will include pads for hardwood floors then. As for now your subwoofers are scheduled for pickup tomorrow.

Good idea. I plan to watch the movers like a hawk anyway.

I don't know why I was thinking on carpet, but just checked iMessage and I asked for hardwood floor, not carpet
