I'll take that, though all round tables are a waste of space, even if they are Algonquin.

When the next Crimean War breaks again out next week, can I be Florence Nightingale the II?

When I started this thread I had no clue just how far people will go to improve the sound of their room.
Now I closely watch a dozen or so threads on a half dozen forums just to see what people with more time and more money than me do to make those 1/2/3% improvements.
Me, I've got a few ideas still to try, beginning with reclaiming 12 square feet of my room by pushing the screen back a foot. I need to get the front wall finished first.
Already incredibly happy with the way its coming together.
My third sub should be here today or tomorrow and I'm looking forward to making 3 work again(the former non performer is acting as a drink holder).
For all the BS involved tweaking is still my favorite (and most hated) part of the hobby.
To think of all the hours and money put in for a moment lost/experienced at a subconscious level. Just to be there, in the moment.
Wish some of you were closer, I could use a friendly tease or advise (in the real world)sometimes.

As a quick follow up to the post above...
I couldn't find my RCA splitter while trying to connect the new(used) sub and ended up using the cup holder (8" crap sub) which has 1 in 2 out. Worked great.
I decided to tweak the other subs with the 4th in the mix. It was already powered up so it made sense.
It also made for an interesting blend session. I got them playing nice most of the time but when there is a short low burst it sounds like they're all going to rattle themselves apart/split down the middle.
The new (used) sub is a bit of a let down though. I'm going to open it up then to check the connections inside and run it by itself to see exactly whats up.

I think so when I eat any PEI moonshine I'll be on Murph's docking place. I might follow organic tea at Ian and Amie's.
