A friend at work just tracked down a parcel of T-Shirts she had sent here from a company in California. They are in Germany!!

Not bad, they only missed by an entire ocean.

I got VP150 In-Cabinet Center Channel(I even built a cabinet already), The M-22 onwall, and qs4's... It's going to rock.. My current home theater speakers are a bunch of KLH speakers I got 20 years ago in jr high.

I've had some KLH stuff back in the day, nice stuff. Do you have a sub? That will really help in the low end where the onwalls will be lacking..

Yea. I picked up a BIC America F12 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015A8...;pf_rd_i=507846


for now. It will be upgraded at some point... next year I would guess. Anyway, I think it should help for now.

I ordered custom wood M60s over three weeks ago.

Before they actually finish and ship them, Axiom first sends a sample of the finish for the customer to evaluate. Once the sample is evaluated, the customer contacts Axiom to let them know to finish the speakers and ship them.

So I ordered the wrong finish, received the wrong finish, and now am waiting on the correct finish to show up on Tuesday so that I can call and confirm.

The wait is agonizing, and just short of unbearable. How I wish I had paid closer attention during the ordering process.

This is how we learn patience. My M80's were sent ground by mistake, and grey hound misplaced one of them for a few days to add to the misery. I was crazy mad LOL so I feel your pain.

Well, according to fedex they should be here tomorrow. So the high tomorrow in Minneapolis is -5. So at least I will have something to do inside. Anyway, I am guessing I should let the speakers warm up. Anything else I should do so I don't damage them because of the cold?

To me +20 degrees F. is cold enough.

My last QS8 for my 6.1 setup is due to be delivered today. smile

Actually it'll seem more like a 4.1 plus. Since the 2 surrounds are forward placed speakers.

Meh.. -5 is not so bad... It's not like you are going outside in shorts.. you have to wait till it hits ~40 before that happens.

Anyway.. I got the speakers yesterday and I got the speakers mostly installed last night. I did not get to really try them out very much. I have a 8 month old baby he was asleep. but so far... nice.. My only criticism so far of the speakers is the Hex key/ Allen wrench the speakers came with.. Total crap.. I could not the mounts on the qs4's to work till I went and got a different one.. but once I figured that out, all went very well.

Sorry to hear about the Allen key trouble! Was it too small or too slender?

Not 100% sure. I think it was the right size, but they just broke down so fast. They ended up not turning the screws. Anyway, it was not a big deal I had a set in my tool box.
