Wow! Your address looks like my password!
Shoot yourself in the leg. They will have to let you go home early.

HEY A FELLOW MARITIMER!!!

I never looked at your location below your name Scott until I saw the name on the Depot.

Welcome!

Edit:
I should be able to cross the Fixed Link and get to Saint John in under three hours if I push it. Oops, I mean if you get there and you are missing the M80's, it wasn't me.

Don't even try. I've got my bike with me today. I'd catch you and then make a mess of your face with my carbon-fiber-knuckled gloves \:\)

And I can't shoot myself in the foot. Then I'd have to go to the hospital and the speakers would be out there longer.

Just yell "Bang!" loudly enough for some coworkers to hear, then claim you were shot. Have a buddy pull up in a box van with a posterboard "cross" on it. Tell him to wear a white jacket.

Viola! You're outta there!

If I've learned one thing from watching The Simpsons and The Family Guy, things like this always work!

Wow! The M80s are a little heavier than I thought they'd be (QS8s are, too). I had to have help bringing the M80 boxes into the house (I'm too small to carry a large awkward box like that). I didn't have a chance to hook anything up because I don't have any speaker wire. I was going to go into town to find some, but then a friend called me to go biking, so the speaker wire will have to wait until tomorrow.

I did un-box 1 QS8, the VP150, and 1 M80. They're damn near perfect. Hope they sound good \:\) Might test them out tomorrow or Friday night if I can find a place locally that I can get some speaker wire from for less than $1/foot.

Good thing you didn't get an EP600, that is like carrying a refrigerator. \:\) I'm a fairly strong guy, and it took a lot of effort to get it downstairs from the front door. \:\)

Wow. That sounds heavy. It'll probably be a little while before I can afford a sub.

I managed to get 250ft of 12awg speaker wire from home depot today for < $0.50/sq ft. My goal was <$1/sq ft. because it would cost me about $0.80-$1 once shipping and tax was paid if I were to order online. I would have bought some banana plugs, too, but they wanted almost $17/pair and monoprice wants < $1/pair. lol. So I might be able to test it out this weekend (sans banana plugs because there's no possible way for them to be here by tomorrow but they don't really matter)

LMAO! I just realized I put "square feet". What the hell is a square foot of cable? Sorry about that. It's been a rough week :P

Hello guys!!! I received my order of M80s, VP150, QS8s and EP800 sub a week ago. I would like to put everyone's mind to rest regarding the EP800 as a comparison to other Axiom subs. It is a literal beast!!! It has the deepest, smoothest, clearest and clean sounding bass I have ever heard. And I have heard plenty. The sound is unbelievable. In my opinion, the EP800 is ahead of its time.

If your budget can handle the extra cost or if you can delay your purchase and save the extra cash to get the EP800, you will thank yourself a million times over. This sub will add sound to your audio system that will leave you, your family and friends with their mouths wide open.
