What, exactly, is "pacing" when describing a sub?

It's about the only means of exercise left, because there's just not enough room in one to walk very far.

Peter, possibly the music that he was playing had great "pacing"(and "rhythm", too!), since it's obviously ridiculous to apply those terms to a sub itself.

After living with the QS8 surround speakers in a 5.1 setup, only with the QS8's in the Wide position instead of the Surround position, I can officially say I am underwhelmed. Not due to the speakers, but due to the position of the speakers.

I would say it's marginally better with them there than without them there. If I sit in my old seating position of right in front of the tv, only about 7-8 feet back, I get the best use of the surrounds. That places them halfway between me and the TV.

But if I just sit somewhere on the L shaped sectional, it's a very rare thing when I actually notice anything coming out of them. I have turned the volume on them up 1 db. to help overcome this a bit. It does help in some situations to give me a wider sound stage. With concerts, mostly all I notice are applauding and shouting coming from them.

Now I'm waiting on the shipment of my 3rd QS8 speaker that's white and going on the back wall. The 10 business day wait puts the proposed ship date on Monday the 14th. My anticipation is this single speaker to complete my 6.1 setup is probably going to make the biggest surround difference.

Edit: I don't know if the original on-wall M22's will fit on the new clips for the QS8's or not. But I'd kind of like to try one of my M22's on the back wall instead of the QS8, just to see what I think about it.

I'm thinking my next car is going to be a Chevy Volt, paid for by funds from my retirement account, before the summer is over. That's my short term goal. It's either that or car payments, and I'm averse to car payments. Especially after going without paying any or 10 years. If it happens, it happens. If it don't, I'll probably still be driving the same old Chrysler I've had since 1998.

Cat, you DO know this is a public forum and not a diary, right?

Dear diary, what a day it's been
Dear diary, it's been just like a dream
Woke up too late, wasn't where I should've been
For goodness sake what's happening to me?
Write lightly, yours truly, dear diary

It was cold outside my door
So many people by the score
Rushing around so senselessly
They don't notice there's people like me
Write lightly, yours truly, dear diary

They don't know what they're playing?
No they've no way of knowing what the game is
Still they carry on doing what they can
Outside me, yours politely, dear diary

It's over, will tomorrow be the same?
I know that they're really not to blame
If they weren't so blind then surely they'd see
There's a much better way for them to be
Inside me, yours truly, dear diary
