Oh, like either of us could get the M80s in the door without being shot by our wives...

My wife adds, "Well, if they were free, maybe."

Was just going to reply to Jack, there are three of us here, so safety in numbers or something like that, and getting four Halos in any less than a SUV is a task. LOL

>>Just don't let them try to convince you there is something terrifically wrong with your system, and graciously offer to take it off your hands for next to nothing.

Darn it. Busted !!!

>>OK, what movie was dodecahedron in? The only reason I recall that (12 sided right?) was from a movie.

It predates movies (well, DVDs anyways). When I was in grade 4 or something our teacher found an "activity book" which showed how to teach kiddies about geometry by having them make a dodecahedron out of disposable coffee cups.

It was a total disaster. The book was based on paper coffee cup inserts which happened to have exactly the right angle for 12 cups to fit together neatly (albeit with circular faces instead of pentagons). We used styrofoam cups and needed about 75 cups to make a big wobbly "lotsahedron" about the size of a small-block V8.

It's hard for me to really rate the Outlaw sub I don't have much to compare it to. I do like it, and think it was worth the ~$600, My previous sub was a home made unit based on the NHT 1259 driver and Parts Express 250w amp. The Outlaw is definitely better, better power handling, tighter. I haven't A/B'ed it with any other sub though.

I like my Outlaw sub. It resides in my great room hidden behind a couch. I use it and the M80's for stereo only. Damn thing will rattle the windows if I turn it up. My great room is 28 X 32 with vaulted ceilings and a loft above (custom log home). Peak is 23 feet. Ten foot ceiling height under the loft areas. I usually keep the crossover set to 80 and volume at 50%. At 65%, the grates on the windows rattle 20 feet away. Besides being loud, it's very tight as well.

As far as the main content of this thread, I'm thinking everyone is entitled to their own opinion, however stinky it is (cause we all know opinions are like A-holes - we all have one). Let Jimmy have his and stop slapping him around. Anyone who has any intellect whatsoever can read between his fuzzy lines and come up with their own conclusions to the nature of his objective here. Relax Denis, you're with friends and we're all quite jealous and wishing we had your system. I'll be taking a Napa Valley wine tasting trip next fall (five guys and a limo for a week..should be fun.....LOL). I would love to see your beautiful home and listen to your system when I'm there, if you'd by so inclined.

very interesting thread to say the least. i would just like to say a couple of things. mabey three. one comment is to tharkun. i can't belive you would let a total stranger come to your house and let him step near those halos and m80s. i would sooner leave a stranger by my kids then by halos and axioms(lol just kidding). but i would think twice about it(lol). second that was a very nice thing to do and to have someone like that say that, is a bellow the belt shot in my book. i find it interesting that jimmy has not replyed probally the best thing hes done. wouldn't want to sound more stupid then he already has. also the comment on parasound being useless well i wish i had 4 useless halos to go with my axioms (lol). all in all it just doesn't pay to be nice anymore. people just have no manners or respect for people who help them out ( not all but most).

I've given four auditions and each one was great. All the guys were polite and very appreciative. I enjoy it because I get to meet new people and talk about speakers, receivers, music, movies, etc.

Don't let one knucklehead ruin it.
