I am sorry. These delays, as I was told by Andrew and then Ian earlier this week when I was at Axiom, was that they blame my post near the beginning of this thread, for why it is taking so long. More will be revealed in time...

Yeah, it is about 1700sqft finished, but when you add about 7 or 8 additional walls besides just the outside to make rooms, and add double layer drywall in the home theater, it uses more. But, very good in your estimate.

Yes, drywall and insulation was much cheaper through a supplier vs HD. A 5/8" sheet was 10$ vs 17$. Just decided to do the whole basement in 5/8 after finding out my budget based on HD prices just opened up a bit. Bonus! Nick you must have

Run them 1' apart when running parallel and cross at 90 degrees if you have to. Do not use the same holes. It doesnt matter if its cat5 or speaker or telephone, same general practice applies. Nick is right, and not crazy.

I too also inquired about the Centre VP180. He won't go lower than $550. He is in Windsor but, the speaker is in Halifax. He also states it is real wood Cherry, however. looking at the pics closer it looks like Boston Cherry vinyl.

Agreed. Let the pros deliver it. I got enough drywall that the delivery was included. They would put the sheets in whatever locations and quantities around my basement that I wanted. 108 sheets of 12 foot long (the BIG stuff) drywall. The cost

Is there any chance of electrical interference if I run speaker wire through the same holes in the joists as nmd90 or should I just drill some separate holes? Tks, Adrian

if you buy the v3 off kijiji then anything is wrong it's your dime to get it fixed. Spend your $100 more and your getting a certified unit from Axiom with their 2 years standing behind it.

Hi blatisi, If your receiver does not have a trigger output, there is no way to put an EP500v4 into standby mode. None of our subwoofers have any sort of signal sensing to automatically put them into standby mode. The only solution is to use the tri

I'm running M60ti mains with a VP180v3 center and the match is really good. It's hard to be sure, but based on listening reports from others I get the impression that if anything the v3 is probably a bit closer to your ti's than the v4. I'm sure ei
