Well, I finally broke down today and took the trip over the border to Windsor. Got a killer deal on the C5s !(I dont know if the store made 10 bucks on this one!) Anyway, currently Im running the Energy Take 5.2, so these are my new fronts. I just got them hooked up to my Integra, so havent had a chance to sit down and listen yet, did alot of listening at the store and they sounded great through a Pioneer Elite reciever. Couple of questions, the salesman told me expect 80-100 hours of playing for break in, and to NOT crank them up during this time, just to keep them at mellow listening levels...why? Also, Im not sure if I like the silver feet in front. Would I be crazy to spray paint them flat black to match the speaker? Any comments and suggestions would be great!
