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.

At least you know they are on the way. What did you get?

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?
