Thanks! Kinda odd...my wife had serious issues with the sub (purchased a year ago). I had to hide it behind the couch out of sight...took me about 6 months until I was "allowed" (I use the term loosely, because eventually I just moved it up front!) to actually see it! These were different. I am a firm believer in it being easier/better/more productive to beg for forgiveness, than to ask for permission. That works for home, as well as at the office.
With these, I planted the seed a year ago and told her I was going to upgrade our AV equipment, but that I would do it in stages so it wasn't going to be as costly as doing it all up front. That's when I purchased the sub, then the AVR1912, then the Klipsch center (all within a couple months). Skip ahead to a couple weeks ago, and I just told her I had already ordered fronts, explained that I didn't break the bank doing so, and that was that.
Can't complain about that. Now I almost have her buying into "us" needing a new fishing boat!
