HA WAF! thats good stuff. Luckily its not as much about approval as it is my trying to ensure we are both as happy as can be in every way. I pretty much have control over what is done in the theater room but still want to try to think of her in the design. of course i cant say the same for the rest of the house.......

Anyway sounds like I can try to create a sort of secondary cabinet for the sub in the column and that should help. Any ideas on what materials i should use for that?

I also just realized that in doing this i am limiting my ability to upgrade later to a larger sub without some demolition and rebuiling of the column.

Success is a journey not a destination!
