You could keep a spray bottle close and squirt him if he gets too close to your speakers

EMP tek 5.1 theater setup, Marantz SR6006, Oppo BDP-95
Salk Songtowers, Emotiva XPA-2, ERC-1.  

This is a horrible hobby!!  My wallet hates me, takes up to much space, neighbors want me to move, but man my house sounds amazing!

As an ignorant child, I once ripped one of my Dad's Epicure model Twenty Plus's inverted dome cloth tweeter with a curious finger (this was after being warned multiple times). I couldn't sit down for a week after that. :/

Arcam AVR300, Adcom GFA-5500 (Main L+R), Panny BDT-500 Media Transport, Toshiba SD-9200 CD Transport, MiniDSP 2x4 HD, Vizio XVT 55" LED/LCD (full direct-backlit w/ local dimming), Darbee DVP-5000S, Chane A2.4 mains, Chane A3rx-c surrounds, Center TBD, 18" XBL2/SplitGap 4th order Bandpass subwoofer x 2 (custom build), BJC ten-white w/ ultrasonically welded WBT locking banana connectors.
