It's like i have to make time to actually sit down right in front of them and not do anything. They're not like a boom box in the garage that i just jam to while fixing or cleaning the dirtbikes or washing the car.
They really draw me into moves though and i only have 2.0 system so far but i'm thinking i don't need anything super special for movie dialect and bigger woofers than i have would be nice but a subwoofer would probably help.
I guess i don't even know what type of answer i'm looking for.
Dude, I've read most if not all of your posts and you said you preferred a speaker that was forward, remember?
The Revel's image didn't project far enough into the room, remember?
I thought at the time, ok that's what he wants.
I haven't heard a truly forward projecting speaker in some years but they've never been my cup of tea.
Personally if you're going for a movie setup, I would get a center channel before a sub if I had to choose.
I think the "phantom center" crowd is blindly ignoring the reality of how movie soundtracks are mixed and meant to be heard.
It's not 2-channel, never will be and never was meant to be.
