>>> I've been trying to convince the wife that we need a second EP500 so that we can use the pair for speaker stands for our m22's. So far, no go...
Mrnomas whenever I casually *mentioned* to my (picky and 'everything must match
') wife that I'd like to get another sub she said "You definitely need to get another one to match the one you have now...it doesn't look right standing there by itself". Try that approach, it just may work.
Of course that was prior to our home A/C unit having to be completely replaced unexpectedly ($$$).
