Wait im just making sure you know, they each have 3 drivers lol

i know :D

2 of the driver face the wall at an angle. its all good. just make sure u dont put them straight in line with the wall.

put the left speaker to the right and right one to the left a little so its rear faces the small non-driver holding part of the sub.  like 30cm ? cant tell from photo how much cm.

Im crazy about speakers, its a sickness!! Actually just to carry the subs downstairs, i had to take out all the drivers. There was no way to carry the akward 250 lb enclosures and they wouldnt even fit through my doorway to even get downstairs to my room eek.gif

Sorry to say it but I think it will be. Just got back from Best Buy and it was pretty crowded and it was only Friday afternoon, can't imagine what Sunday will be like.

I had to blink twice to make sure I wasn't seeing things when I saw your drivers sitting on the floor. But when I saw the reason behind it, it all made perfect sense.

I don't think anything can be as bad as Black Friday. As long as you have a little patience I think you'll be fine. Besides, once they see all the things you are buying they will most likely make you a top priority and move you to the from of any line. :) 

 

They should bring you free food and drinks while you shop for all the gear you'll be buying. Kind of like they do in the casinos of Vegas. Now that would truly be a good shopping experience.

Lol! Each driver is 50lbs so shedding 150lbs off each sub made placement easy. Actually the best buy people love me here smile.gif ive spent the most in the store and they hook me up on prices. Even the managers come over and hang out to see my setup lol

Actually they've hooked me up a bunch of times, I've seen literally hundreds of Dollars taken off whenever I get a bunch of stuff. Also they let me trade in equipment to upgrade whenever I want, and never ask questions. I've exchanged things even after 4 months of use. I can't wait to get the USB measuring mic! They don't count weekends so it'll be here Monday. I've already got an spl meter and I ordered a monoprice RCA 2male to male cable that will also be here Monday.

That's great. I actually live near the Crutchfield store and they have always treated me great as well. I can't say enough good things about the way Crutchfield treats their customers.

This popular mic set was only $65, then $50 for the SPL meter. With these 2 and a laptop, I'll finally get detailed graphs of room measurement! Yeah! I've never done measuring but always see people doing it. I can't wait biggrin.gif

Is def worth getting from what everyone here says. Man I've been working so hard on this last minute dream Christmas for my sister! So far I've been able to come up with $3,000. I can make another $400 by Sunday so it looks like I can pull it off! smile.gif

Well this $ is just what I was able to put on the side for her presents so I would like to make the most of it biggrin.gif a 60in would be way more than enough, but I want her to have the surprise of a lifetime (in her eyes) ever since I've been doing my setup, everyone in the house has gotten into the HT world. She would never expect a big tv just for her. Me and my bros walk around the house showing off our screens and she's had her little hobbit tv and has never asked for anything lol. So now she'll feel shocked to see a big tv under the wrapping paper and she'll be so happy. I'm just doing it for her because I promised that after all our hard work pays off at trying for a better life that one day we would celebrate together smile.gif Once I go to best buy and meet with the manager I'm going to see what they can do for me with my plan. I'm going to post pics of what I end up getting and then a video of her opening her presents. I've been telling her all week that I'm broke and that I can't get presents lol! I feel so bad because she always says she just wants a Christmas tree and Christmas music for memories of when we were all little and that she doesn't need presents, it makes me want to cry

:p

he must be giving you a good deal knowing that story bro. but really a 40" would make her very happy as she herself pointed out, so if you get a 46" she be overwhelmed anyways and that leaves room for some other stuff to get to make the whole picture complete. i mean what kid of her age has got this big a tv lol. you can try the new mic to see how much decibel she produces when getting all this stuf :D:D:D . it must be hard on you to tell her ur broke, if it was me i could not pull it off as my face so much reflects what im thinking and im to honest for that  lol. do get that christmas tree and the music and sit together with eachother, it's really what she desires most from what i can tell about woman and their likings. it sorta makes me wanna cry too. i mean if she did so much her best and having to see all the stuff u got daily and don't complain, she must be special not only to you n bro's.:) 

from all the things me n my sis and bro been to i learned one thing.. the most important is that you stick together and allways be there for eachother. specially at christmas n birthdays. no material in the world is gonna provide that being together lovin n caring for eachother.
