Thanks for the advice, FF. I think that I'm going to try to listen to them, but I'm pretty convinced that I'm going the sho-10 rout. Your point about the DB's is well taken, though I do have the xpa-3 to drive whatever i get. It is just so tempting to save the space with in-walls. But, in reality, the in-walls with the proper amp is more expensive that the JTR quint-8's. I just always worry about making the right decision until it's done. Then I want to upgrade, lol.
