Great thread as WAF is real factor. I am married with 3 little ones. There is no way I could have what I do in the living room as the little boy would destroy everything. The First step was to build a separate room so I can play movies loud. This also depends on what type of wife you have. Mine loves to tell me how to do everything and what I need and don't need. The answer to this type is to ask for forgiveness rather than permission because you will never ever get an OK from this type, ever! Honey, can I have a movie night, not tonight honey. So this goes on for months and guess what, no movie night ever. So I turned it into Honey, the guys are coming over tonight for a movie. She replies with the why didn't you ask me or let me know! Trust me guys, they get over it in 10 minutes. Same thing for any home theater gear! Now only do this if you can afford it. I never ask the wife for anything anymore, I never get it. Just get it and then wait for the first 10-15 minutes of yelling and insults and then it goes away. You can't explain it because they don't really care. Honey, you never ask me to go anywhere or when you buy something. The reply is usually but I buy what we need which is not true but she really believes it to be. You can't win, just do it! Again, only if you can afford it. I am not saying put JBL pro 4675C speakers in the living room either. We have to be somewhat reasonable too. If I can get away with things you guys can too.
