Yeah its a lot cleaner now. That was that way when I first put it together.

Here you go:

And no I didn't pay anywhere near that price, lol, but if I did, I would tell you that they would have been worth every dollar.

Yeah, that'* just a basement room. Its actually larger than it looks. I certainly do need more room for a "home theater." That'* all we have to work with for now though, haha.

Wow, those must sound amazing. I thought I spent a lot on my system, till I discovered that I was actually toward the lower midrange of audiophile home theater audio. Sky'* the limit, but as I mentioned earlier, these are speakers you keep for 10-20 years. I would LOVE to hear what those sound like.

Home and car audio makes me drool, and I don't mean loud *** competition SPL subs. I mean finesse, quality, refinement, accuracy, depth. Anthony over here came in telling us how great his Kicker components and 6x9'* sounded and I told him they aren't anywhere near as great as the Polk Audio DB series in my car, and he agrees. Its just not the same. You can go absolutely insane with this kind of stuff.
