If you want to keep your wife happy, why not get in-walls? They're less noticeable then Jewel cubes and sound much better.

I'd totally rock Jewel Cubes if it weren't for in-walls but if WAF factor...

Unsolicited? Was I not quoted? As long as I'm quoted, I have a right to respond. Thank you very much.

I feel I've helped others save a bit of their hard earned cash, what have you provided?

So what device did you use to measure this? And you also used a decibel meter on C weighting correct?
