Well, I finally got time away from work to get some photos of these in place. I built some speaker stands that could hold their weight, which is over 50lbs each. I'll need to start a thread on those because they turned out pretty nice and were cheap and sturdy too. I may change the top platform a bit, but they are still nice.
Okay, now I'm not 100% sure I have these set up exactly right just yet. The manual for the Evolution speakers says to put the tweeter towards the inside of the room, but I think Jack said they should go towards the outside wall.
But what I can say is that these VR-3 speakers beat the crap out of my Polk rti-8's. Much louder and cleaner too. I have no worries about hurting them with the current power they're getting from my Denon 987, which I think is 110 watts, but that's an 8 Ohm rating, these are 6 Ohm speakers. I may eventually get an Emotiva amp.
I know they sound cleaner because I was listening to a song, and realized that what I thought the lyrics were for part of it was WRONG! I felt a bit stupid at that point, but oh well.
I'm very pleased with the outcome and of course my upgrade sickness has been cured for this room. I have to hide all the wires and build a stand for the center channel though.A closer shot: (I'm thinking about making the top platform on the stand square versus round)
