Yup, amie showed him the photos, plus dimension info. He suggeted 60's plus sub. But he's a sound ideologue (i hope) with out a downstairs neighbor, and, of course, he's gotta make a living! I still might give the 22's a try first since both you and Alan suggested that w/sub, they might be the best solution if i don't intend to crank them up. And then there is the pesky furniture arrangment thing. Gee, its hard to be a girl, low-budget audiophile (did that come out right? -lol). You guys can all blame your wives. i have to take full responsiblity for decor over sound compromises.
