Sorry to hear of your illness. Hope you feel better soon.

I think you're spending too much time thinking about acoustics. Unless you have an acoustical engineering degree, or know one of these...

chronic9: Congratulations on your EMP Tek's. Their subwoofer with the red burl finish is beautiful and it will match your speakers, and appears to be a quality subwoofer. However, it only goes...

Acoustics in the room don't change unless you change it. I replaced a small 12-inch BIC with a PSA XS30 and it sounds great in that same spot. And where the BIC didn't sound good, neither does the...

Before hiring a handyman, there a few things you can do to insure quality sound from your subwoofer. The first (and most important) thing to do is the subwoofer crawl test. Sounds silly, I know. ...

Yes, you and your wife should love the high-gloss red burl finish on the EMP Teks (I feel the high-gloss black look a little too much like plastic and not nearly as elegant). I don't think I've...

You could look at EMP Tek: $225 for a pair, so you could get four for $450 and see if they will sell you a fifth to use as your center channel @ $112.50. Then you are in for a grand total of...

Cheap? Who said cheap? Inexpensive doesn't mean they are somehow inferior. On the contrary, there are plenty of really great bookshelf speakers for not much money. And if you decide to go D.I.Y.,...

Congratulations on your X2000. I just ordered one for audition (I'm sending the Marantz I was auditioning back tomorrow).

Yeah, I'm pretty late in responding.

Let's see, you are willing to spend $500 or so on a Bose system with a bass module, or just $200 on the Zvox. Not really a fair comparison. Go up to the Zvox 580 with Dual 6.5" woofers, 5 main...

Between the great room, kitchen and breakfast area, you are looking at over 3,000 cu. ft. (with 8-foot high ceilings). Your sub will see that entire volume. While it puts you in the large room...
