You can call them and try to get them to send the driver back before the end of the day.

just tried, but they're not doing it. I will just have to wait for the next 10800 seconds to pass by.

I knew it was a long shot, but worth a try.

Early congrats on the new speakers!

Probably better that you pick them up. You really don't want to give them an excuse to drop-kick your boxes into the truck again.

status report!

two of the six boxes were damaged but the speakers were intact. I ordered them through the FO and didn't find any imperfections.

Big difference in sound! wowwwww we tested them for three hours and we turned the sub off. It made no difference, they are plenty of bass coming out of these! For movie, there was at least one passage in WallE where the sub made a difference.

I still need to install the additional QS8s before I take some pictures. Will probably install them tomorrow, can't wait to watch hellboyII in 7.1

The power amp does sure make a difference, can't live without it.

We're done with our setup.

Yup.

At some point, you need to level match all speakers in your system and try out the sub on movies again. If you still hear no difference with and without, you need a new sub.

With most music, you should not notice much difference betwen with and without sub because there is little or nothing below around 40Hz. With movies, those that have lots of LFE, you should notice a big difference between just the 80s and 80s+sub.

+1 on the sub... a descent sub that is properly calibrated should make a significant difference with movies even with M80's and ANY amplifier. For me, the PB13 adds alot of depth and "punch" (in my room, anyway) even to music, more than the M80's alone. Anyway, congratulations on your system!

3:10 to Yuma's another really solid one in 7.1. You're going to be feeding the speakers for awhile.
