Have you tried speaking with the owner? Just knock on the door and let them know what's going on. You may be surprised at the results.

I think you hit on a very good solution there Scott. Looks like its small enough to be discretely placed. No confrontation required.

We were able to tuck ours under the eaves pointing at the neighbors yard and unless you knew what you were looking at, you wouldn't know it was there. One bark here and one bark there was the result - as opposed to hours of non-stop barking.

We tried talking to the neighbors, several times, first. A reasonable person would have been sympathetic and done something (anything) to resolve the issue. Turns out our neighbors were just as psycho as their dog and seemed to encourage it there after. That's when we started filing formal, signed complaints. That was even less effective. So a vet friend recommended the UKS and it all but eliminated the problem. If only they had something that worked as well on inconsiderate neighbors...

Hope your neighbors are more human than our turned out to be.

Scott

They also market that speaker as a super-tweeter. It does wonders for your system's soundstage.

But only if you connect it with Pear Cables.

Think you could wire that in parallel with a 2nd one for a centre channel? (with pear cables of course)
