Yeah, I made a mockup of the sub with some cardboard and it fit fine, but was a little tight. If I change speakers down the road, it will be even tighter. The standard sub is 25 inches wide. My old 15s were only 19 inches wide. Im knocking them down to 22 inches and will still be able to put a grill on if I want to.

I fully realize and appreciate their place, however I just laugh upon seeing people use them in odd manners. Then again, in the 70's, I used to pay $20 for 3 minutes of Super-8mm film, purchased and processed. 3 minutes, yep,...that's all you got. It was high end too. Then, with video tape, we moved onto 2 hour capability. But we were burdened with a big camera, and it was umbilically tied to a shoulder worn VTR. Yep, two big pieces. Quality went downhill, because before, with three minutes, you really had to craft your work carefully. Then, with two hour tapes, recording went on and on and content quality went dismally down.

Sorry for the OT

I'm curiously awaiting your new mains, and subs. Do you have any additional estimates on arrival dates of the new gear? I'm especially interested in the new mains,...quite interesting. Obviously the dynamics, and output capability should be there. Proper integration of the elements will be key, and if they keep their normal course, they'll be just fine.

Merry Christmas

They will be coming with the new subs. Im looking at 2 weeks probably. I had to push the subs back because Im having the cabinets built smaller because they were too wide.

This is especially cool since his mom and I are divorced so just saying I'm enjoying this free feature. Its waaaaay more high quality than other video chat I've used. The extreme pixelation and quality issues typically turn me off to it but facetime looks really good.

how do those Klipsch's sound with the XPA? I have the same amp, but had it packed away for a few months now b/c it really is to much for my Jamo E660's, which still sound good, but there's no point in me having them hooked up when my one rcvr can power them just fine. Not as clean but still... So let me know how you like them, I been wanting to get some 7's but there to much for me... RF63's might be a better fit.

I love it. I sold my onkyo 876 to buy the 5508. I sold my xpa3 and bought the xpa5.
I might be upgrading in the next two weeks to some custom speakers, so stay tuned.

Yea bro I just read through the posts and seen a cad like drawling... You get some sweet stuff! How loud do you listen to your movies? The RF's are about double what my E660's are and a lot more responsive I bet it would be night n day for me

The only diference besides size I see in our rooms is yours is carpeted and I have laminate floors.How much of a difference would that make as far as sound quality goes.Sorry for the noobish question but I'm new to this stuff.

IMHO, I would only have carpet in a room like we have. Hard flooring will cause echo. I tamed most of mine with acoustic panels.

The carpeting and other acoustic treatments in his room (those black panels on his walls are acoustic panels) would make a HUGE difference compared to your untreated room.
