    Been listening to the 4s a bit lately and I can attest that the protruding Peerless doesn't seem to hurt the sonics. In fact it's amazing how sweet these little speakers sound, even in a large room....

    Yep, that's my plan. Most likely my main HT will end up with 198s in the fronts and center, and a secondary system will start with all SL2000s and end up upgraded to all 194s. I might just have use...

  10. The journey of a million mods begins with a single sheet of Dynamat Extreme

    Thought I'd document some really rudimentary stuff here in case it helps other beginning modders, and maybe provide a little general entertainment value.

    I will do that WMG but I am wondering if there are any general rules of thumb. Am I right to surmise from your reply that having an SL2000 doesn't in and of itself make a Monitor eligible for a TL...

    Those had been up there a long time but I see they apparently were sold the other day. Twin-tweeter CRS (not +) though.
