This is going to be nuts! Will you be running your 4 x FTW21's as well?
I hope you'll host a GTG when you're done. Myself and a couple of the local AVSer's in the GTA will definitely do a road trip to experience the bass!

You Da Man, Fat!

I really wanted to do 8-12 of the 24s back before he rose the price but don't think he took me seriously when I inquired so the opportunity slipped by.

I'm theaterless and have been for a while but just can't purchase ATMOS pre/AVR until one comes out that I'll be happy to live with for at least 5 years. Hopefully this next bunch of releases will meet my needs since I can't build a pc based system like The Savoy. We are also most likely selling the house and moving which has been a total "mind=blown" situation since we built the entire theater addition thinking we would be here for no less than 18-20 years raising our kids. Wife has job offer that is just about too good to pass up so will have to move about an hour away from here. Guess only positive way to look at it is "theater 2.0" will be fun. I'm thinking smaller and more subs and mbms. Two rows instead of three should be fine.

Looking forward to your thoughts on your upgrade.

Lol yea all is well man. I've been hiding behind the curtains past few weeks trying to get caught up around here. Our daughter had colic so our lives were turned upside down when she was born. Didn't have time to do anything is what it felt like. But all is well now. She's growing like a weed and doing great.

Hope all is well your way as usual Fat. I'll be watching and hoping theater 2.0 for you is a pleasurable experience ;-). I don't remember what he finally told me would fit on a pallet but it wasn't nearly as many as I thought would maybe 4? I don't remember at all since it was after the increase in price when finally told me.

Crazy story to share.

My wife has insisted to me that we stay here in this house and raise our kids in this town so I spent pretty much all the cash I had building my crazy bar, theater, pool house addition. She kept getting contacted by a CEO from a group about an hour away so finally went to dinner with him. Dinner went well. Had dinner with a few couples from the group the following week to see how daily business was run. It went really well. My wife had totally changed her stance on staying here to wanting to leave and the following day after the dinner the owner of the farm our property joins knocked on the door and introduced himself to me. He said I'm gonna sound crazy but I want to buy your house. I told him that it could be possible that my wife had just literally spoke with a new employer but I'd need to get back with him. This was just this past Thursday so no telling if he will pay what I would need to get out of this house or not but its all happening really fast. I'd rather stay here for 6 months to a year and have the wife commute just to make sure everything goes well working there then build or buy but we shall see what happens.
