Of course the 7 series comes along days after I order ELEVEN 612 EONs, lol. It's ok, the 7's could still be a bit underpowered for my (eventual) large space. I'm still very happy with how well I did...

I've been in two level matched AVR/PRE ABX sound-offs that included 18 people, in totality.

Absolutely no one could reliably discern one from the other: level-matched, in the identical room, with...

^ good question. I was very much considering the 308's but I'm all but positive they wouldn't have the output I'm looking for.

The 308's are a "monitor" and the 612's a "pa" speaker, but outside...
