    Thats the truth! After you listen to a range of speakers it gets to the point you know in the first 1 min. if they are contenders or not. Then if so, you start listening and looking at the details.

    As I have come to find out that I have never owned a set of good speakers, please I beg your indifference to your personal preferences and just try to put yourself into my head for a moment, as I have put in over 2 months time and effort into this.

    Best way to hook up new sub?

    If your just using one go for a clean corner and stand off about 2ft from either wall. Starting from there play with the placement. then use one of the best tools you will have ,Audyssey Dynamic EQ ,to set up the optimized bass management.
