There are people out there using BOOKSHELVES for main speakers and are happy as hell. How do YOU know the guy won't be happy with 260? Do you know how he listens to music or what he can afford or have space for? "Naahh." You're wrong. In your own words.
I never said that the 440c couldn't do it's job, I said I wanted bigger drivers as a personal preference. I've had 3 Klipsch centers, and they all were excellent, I changed due to personal preference for moar, and wanting to keep my speakers matchy matchy.
As far as the rest, all of that can be true, and none of it makes my statement untrue.
It's very true that it's possible I was driving them over their rated limits.
I in no way am saying the 260f are bad speakers. I made a point that if you listen excessively loudly, you probably should step up to the RP-280f. Nothing you have said changes that other than being called a liar by you and Forte. Strangely enough, I don't appreciate that. You are talking points that are true, and don't make my point wrong.
I never said that the 260f wouldn't be appropriate for him, I said, and still say, if you listen at excessive levels, the 280f are better. I don't understand why that uncontroversial statement would make you and Forte's head spin.
