    1st I want to start out by saying that my wife loves HT, just not as much as me. We are both wanting to get a new 16x9 TV, but I promised her we would redo the entire kitchen 1st (in progress). So any HT upgrades are pretty much out of the question.
    I have been trying to convine her that we need a new SVS sub to replace our Energy ES-8. She wanted to wait until after the TV, but I knew this would improve my sound for little cost. So, she finally gave in, but aI would have to wait until the kitchen was complete. [​IMG]
    Then I had an idea, I took her to a HT specialty shop to here some good subs, not the crap at Best Buy or Circuit City. The salesman I deal with gave my wife and I a demo of Contact. We then left the store, came home, and she bought me an SVS 20-39 CS for a late graduation gift. [​IMG]
    Now I just can't wait for the beast to get here. I am going to use a nice Kenwood 2 channel reciever, that I have lying around, to power it for now until I get an amp later on down the line (next year). My room HT room is small (15'6" x 13' x 8') so the one SVS should do the job just fine.
    Now a quick question to Ron and Tom..... "Did it ship yet?" Just kidding guys. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the order Dean,
    In a 1600 cu-ft room a single 20-39cs should do fine.(even with 100-125w...it should be nearly equal to a HGS15 or a servo15).
    We got your order confirmation around 6pm Sat...so unfortunately there will be a slight delay...it won't be shipping until early afternoon on Monday [​IMG]
    Just locate/calibrate the 20-39 well and I dont think you'll feel the need to upgrade your subwoofer for a while.

    Tom thanks for the info. I didn't think I would have a problem with the setup I am going to use. Believe it or not, that little Energy sub moves a lot of air in my room. The acoustics in my HT room are incredible.
    I will calibrate it with Video Essential and my SPL meter as soon as I hook it up.
    So Tom, tomorrow afternoon I can ask, "Did it ship yet?" [​IMG]

    Richard,
    Sorry, she is an only child. [​IMG]
    Maybe we can get human cloning to move along faster so I can clone my wife for some of the HTF members. [​IMG]

    Maybe there is a lesson for women here.

    My friend, I feel your waiting-on-the-SVS pain. I ordered my 20-39CS and was tracking it online, watching it get closer...and closer...and closer.
    The day finally arrives. My brother calls, asks if my wife and I want to go to the lake with his family. "What, are you nuts?!" I cry, "The SUB is coming today!"
    I continue to wait. My wife is sitting around bored because I refuse to leave the house. I'M bored because I refuse to leave the house. I've been up since 8am. Around 11am, I take yet another look out the front window to see a UPS sticker on my door! It said they'd tried to deliver at 10am but got no response! But I'd been there! RIGHT THERE! No knock, no ring, NOTHING!
    Well, maybe he didn't hit the doorbell just right and it didn't ring. I don't know, but four or five calls to UPS and about 4 hours later and the driver shows back up and gives me my bouncing baby SVS.
    All's well that ends well, I guess.
    The moral of the story: wait in your front lawn for the guy. [​IMG]

    Chauncey,
    That is why I am having it delivered to work. UPS arrives at my work between 10:00 AM and 10:30 AM. [​IMG]

    If she wasn't your wife yet, that alone would be reason enough to propose!

    Well, my SVS is sitting at the UPS warehouse right by my work and it says it will be delivered tomorrow. I guess I'll have to wait until Thursday now to get the parts for my Flexy Rack that I am going to build. [​IMG]

    I just loaded my SVS into the back of my Escape. Now I have to wait another three hours to unbox it at home. [​IMG]
    Then I have to wait to hook it up because I am transfering my equipment temporarily until I get my Flexy built. So it will be a good 5 hours until I can listen and calibrate it, but at least it is here.
    The box arrived in great condition, not one hole in the box.
    Thanks for the fast shipment guys. [​IMG]

    Transcript of a confession:
    "Forgive me father, for I have sinned..."
    "What is your transgression, my child?"
    "I... I keep thinking about my neighbor's wife..."
    "What sort of thoughts are you having, my child?"
    "I keep fantasizing about her...
    "Yes, go on..."
    "I fantasize about her buying me an SV Subwoofer!"
    "Ah, you must be the neighbor of Dean DeMass! Fear not, son, I too have had such thoughts about his wife!"
