I've auditioned the SM-65s on three different occasions. I didn't find them restricted at all, so I'm a bit surprised about your comments. As far as break-in period, it varies from manufacturer to...

Welcome, Californe: Question number 2: Maggies need a good subwoofer. Yes, even for music. Take a look at Rythmik (they seem to be a good match for the Maggies). Other companies would be SVS...
