Oh, one other thing. 212's all the way.
Hey, do you read tea leaves as well?
Just had the PJ conversation with the wife the other day and I already planned on moving the front row back a bit. I put my existing front seats up close and didn't like it.

I may spin them straighter, but only as far as I can without compromising the multichannel. I'm using CHT SHO-10's with an 90 deg horn. No doubt the S8's are a better choice with their better dispersion, but having just put out for Noesis 212HT LCR's and the S2's, the CHT's are staying for now;).
