Good choice on the speakers. They make my whole house shake. Does a really good job of ****ing off the neighbors.

I myself was going to get the Klipsch but I did not want to deal with the base dieing on me, and having to pay 60 bucks to ship it to them, and another 60 back.


Yes I know you have to "break them in" and make sure you have good cooling on the sub, but even then it just dies. Yes some units survive 2 years, while some only last 4 seconds.


Not something I want to deal with.

Hmm never heard of that. When i got mine right after i hooked them up i cranked it up and jammed. So i didnt do the break in so i guess mine will only last a few weeks huh? Also we have always had a pretty good home stereo and surround sound all we bought was Klipsch speakers they still jam after 7yrs of hard use.
