Wow! 88 views and only 14 poll votes? (2 of them are mine as I had to vote to see the results)

Thanks for those that have voted so far, keep the votes coming.

Pretty Please.....

Hey Jake, thanks for responding. In regards to the HG Cherry, they are really cool, but I had a few concerns. First of all, they would be to reflective when watching movies in the darkened room. Right now, the mansfields reflect some light from the projector, I think the HGC would be worse. Secondly, they are available for a limited time, until they are discontinued. Becuase there is now a Wood HG Cherry available, this finish will be phased out soon. If I ever want to buy another sub, or upgrade to 100's when they come out, , the finish won't be available.

In regards to my speakers, I have a few friends interested in them if I can ever make up my mind.

Yeah thats a good point ion your poll i voted for the warm cherry wood.as you can tell im partial to cherry wood in all varieties.i personally would not go with black as much as you want agreat movie experiance it is also a "rec room" and you still want it to be stunning when people come over with the lights on. just my 2cents

I went with Charcoal, looks like a REALLY cool color and would blend in well with your theatre. Especially since your front wall is painted black.

And it would reduce any reflection from the screen onto the darker color so, like you said, you can watch the move without the distraction of the speakers.

Concerning your M80s and your 2 EP500s...

If you just went via the factory outlet and got black oak as a finish, it would blend well with your front wall and be a darker color, AND you could probably swing the M80s with 2 EP500s...

Just a thought

I can’t vote…I don’t like the choices so I’d just be voting against one of the others I like less. Kinda like voting for presidents lately…..

I’m partial to the rosewood myself. I think they are gorgeous. You could get them in a dark stain with a satin finish and I think they’d not be too noticeable when watching movies, but very noticeable when the lights are on. For your reference, I can’t see my boston cherry speakers at all when I’m watching movies. I only say that so you don’t think you HAVE to go with a black or real dark speaker. I could take some dark room photos for you if you wish. Just let me know.
