    I am in the process of having a HT room built at our house and in my quest to learn more about HT I found this fantastic site. I am making decisions right now on what equipment I will be buying in about 2 months. So SVS tortures me by having a 15% off sale so now I have a 20-39cs+ with a Samson 1000 amp sitting all by itself in our dining room.

    On a side note my wifes eyes got pretty large when the sub was pulled from the box. I noticed this and tried to cushion the blow by saying you do want to be able to feel it when a dinosaur walks across the screen don't you honey. She looked at the sub again and said, by the looks of that you could feel a fly go across the screeen.

    That was all she said and this is coming from a woman who prides herself in interior design and decorating and is glued to HGTV like a 15 year old boy watching baywatch for the first time. All in all so far so good but it sure is going to be a long 2 months.

    Same thing here Brad!

    My wife was a bit shocked by the size of even the smallest (a relative term) of the SVS subs.

    But it's in place and after she has heard a few selections on it, she can see it does have great bass.

    Interestingly, I was the one initially taken aback by the size of my dual 16-46 subs. I did all the measuring and estimating, but the sight of these two huge tubes in front of me was still different. However, when my girlfriend came over, she just walked in and didn't mention anything about them, not even about the two huge boxes in my kitchen. After about an hour, I had to ask her what she thought and she said, wow, they are big and moved on. Now we are very serious and she realizes that eventually these will be in "her"/our living room (I even mentioned it), and she still didn't mind. More proof that she's a keeper. Looks like I will be blessed in regards to the WAF, at least I'm hoping it stays this way.

    My wife was shocked when I setup my two large Parasound amps and my newly made center channel speaker(24w x 9h x 10 d) on the large shelf of our built in entertainment center. I ended up using the whole shelf width and she wanted to know what to do with the knicknacks that were previously there. My only response was, "at least you won't have to dust them anymore."
