I had them on Quest EM400 stands. Worked fine. Any stand that has a large enough platform should be sufficient. Mine have hollow columns that can hide the wire and can also be filled with sand for...

Not sure what Fry's is currently selling them at (no Fry's in Canada) but they have been commonly found for less than $400 each for a long time now. We've all expected stock to run out for quite some...

Do you have any speakers on hand that you could use in a test-run to see if you really would use front wides? I tried a pair of RC10s as wides for a brief time and didn't find that they added much....

For the price that you can grab the RC70s for, you really can't go wrong. Plus you would then have a 7 channel system if you are able to use that many speakers. I have used both the RC10s and RCRs as...

$800 would be a steal for a new pair of 6.3s. My local FS has them on "clearance" for $750 each and yet I recall seeing them on sale for $499 each a few months ago. Future Shop has some wacky pricing...

So ya, this thing is pretty potent. It is on the boomy side, but I haven't touched the DSP yet and it is currently corner mounted which probably contributes to the boominess. I'm already noticing the...

Bingo!

Only problem now is the wire to speakon connection in the cabinet. The blades are so close together that the spade connectors on each wire will be touching each other.
