Won't you have to pay the return shipping on the extra three speakers?

The sales person I spoke to said they will send me a return shipping label and that I don't need to pay for shipping. When I asked, he said I can keep how ever many I want and send back the rest. Lets hope I don't run into any issues.

That's great on their return policy.

If you are considering keeping them instead of the Pioneers, be sure to get a sub right away so that you can get the full idea of how they sound. The SuperZeros probably need to be crossed over with a sub around 100hz. They really need a subwoofer to produce midbass.

I'll keep that in mind. I hope where ever I end up buying from ships fast smile.gif

On another note, what guage speaker wire do I need ? The longest cable I will be running to the right surround speaker is around 50' worst case. To keep end points clean and neat, what connectors do I need ?

There is a chart on this page that can help you out with choosing speaker wire gauge (scroll down a ways): http://www.roger-russell.com/wire/wire.htm
