And lots of guys that DO stain their BB make it look like a pile of garbage since they have no idea what they are doing. Veneering is not very hard, they are lots of options, lots of the guys just roll on duratex anyways cool.gif

Finally had time to replace the sub and set everything back up in the living room.

Gold is no EQ, Green is Audyssey XT. All I've done so far is set them up and run Audyssey. It looks good to me. I could probably get it flat to 6Hz if I EQ'd before Audyssey, but I'm not too concerned.

I prefer the sound quality to my old Dayton HFs and the output and extension (since I had to run a HPF with the Daytons).

Living room: Definitive BP2000TL, CLR3000, BPVX, Quad SI 18" subs
Bedroom: Definitive BP30, CLR2000 Also have had: BP7000SC, BP8B, BP10B, BPX, Dayton 15" HF subs, Rythmik F15
