oh wow! thanks for the cliffs scott... that sucks! Well, at least there is a much happier ending at the end

I had a set of RF83s and RC64 center. The RF83s were great, but the RC64 struggled with lower frequencies a bit with the smaller drivers. They were all horn loaded, so the highs were nice. The JBLs seem less fatiguing. I can't quite tell why, but definitely easier to listen to.

I know this is an oooold thread, but I figured you're probably subscribed to it (so I'll ask anyways :-D)
I'm trying to figure out if I want to go this route or some other DIY route for my living room system.
My system pulls double duty with TV/Movies and Music.
Have you listend to the 4722 and 3677 combo with music yet?
