For apartment setups -especially when there's a shared wall in the room where the HT resides- consider adding a Buttkicker/bass shaker directly to the seating. It adds to the tactile sensation you...

Auromatic sounds best for two-channel music, IMO, but all 3 are inferior to Neo:X/PLIIx/z. I find this is the most disappointing aspect of all the new up-mixing technologies.

Sticky-tape won't traumatize your cat, unless you're using something completely inappropriate, like fly paper. You want weak two-sided tape - cats hate the texture of it. You can remove it once the...

It is, but I would recommend sticking with the same woofer size when upgrading i.e. the 280's. I went from the Icon V-36's to the RP-250. The RPs sound more refined, but you do lose a bit of impact...

Sorry, my bad... I thought they were sold by the pair. In any case, I've seen the price go down to $100 each - this was about 3 months ago. Amazon's pricing can get really wacky for certain products.

SVS Prime elevation speakers are a good choice. POLK OWM-3/OWM-5 can also work as lower cost alternatives.

Cylinder subs aside, cats won't damage the metal grill that comes with SVS SB/PB subs. I have two cats, and other than occasionally lounging on top of the cabinet, they don't touch it.
