Can I just say how cool I think it is that Tom is responding to posts and not pushing his own wares? That's a class act IMO. Especially considering how amazing his products are!

Another thing to keep in mind. Speakers you buy now may sound amazing in a small bedroom, but lack later when you move them to a large living room in a house some day. So if you are serious about...

This is a pretty good point! Ever tear a car apart to see the size of the speaker wires they use? The fanciest cars use the same cabling the economy cars use. (and its thin!)

That should be fine. I put return and supply in mine so I could seal the door with weather stripping. This blocks all light and reduces noise (barely) to the other rooms.
