They will stay where I put them as I have a modular rancher and the wife was so kind to give me my own(I share) family room..since Im only about 10' from the front speakers..I think I will go with the M22..I cant see where spending the big bucks will make a difference here.
You will love the M22 speakers. I have a pair and an inexpensive yamaha sub. The combo sounds great. I listen to all kinds of music but mostly trashy heavy metal. I have a Yamaha RX-V2700 reciever and these M22 speakers take a beating. Well, you can't call it a beating cause they have no trouble playing the music at very loud volumes. The detail is incredible. My ears are the bottle neck in how loud and clear they can play.
