The Fed Ex tracking numbers stated Tuesday delivery for my 3 Sealed T8s and was switched early this morning to Monday. At noon today, a Fed Ex guy showed up at my house with one of the sealed T8. I was always under the impression that Fed Ex did not deliver on Saturday. Either way, he and Jeff @ JTR just made my weekend!
My subjective impressions will come later but so far I think it's well packaged and as N8DOGG stated for its small size it feels like a heavy brick but in a good solid way. I pulled out a bathroom scale (not sure how accurate it is) and weighed the speaker at 45#s
All I did so far was hook the one as my center channel and level matched with the mains. My old Sapphire speakers were factory rated at 93db efficient at 8ohms and the receiver setting was set to -2.5 to achieve a 76db reference level. On the sealed T8s, I had to back that off to -6.5 to achieve the 76db reference. I am not using Auydessy but may try that again much later. Right now I'm just playing some music through them as I am not sure if they require any break in. Later today the wife and I will put some movies and enjoy.
Overall, I am very pleased with the look, feel and the packaging of the speaker.
Here's some pics with the center installed. For reference the TV is a 50inch Plasma.
