Haha. I think I'd be better served by an active 180 for movies.

I think the major benefits of actives are improved stage depth, increased sensitivity and more focused imaging. An active 180 could benefit from increased sensitivity but not the other two. The increased sensitivity may or may not be a benefit depending on the application.

Given that the 180 is already the most sensitive piece in my setup, increased sensitivity is probably overkill (unless sensitivity in this context means something different than SPL per Watt).

You got it right. SPL per Watt (per meter).

Doesn't it piss you off bman, that all these years, you were robbed of a pristine and emotional audio presentation?

Not really, because I'm only now investing in a proper setup. My first setup was a cheap HTIB, and the one after that was a Costco receiver/satellite/tiny sub combo deal.

You were so fortunate with your first system! My first system was a crystal radio consisting of 5 parts.
