    That would go over like a lead brick .

    At the moment I don't plan on parting with any. Now, if I ever find a pair of 2.3s or 1.2s then something will need to go. One of the perks of the basement is that I can empty out the jeep and she will never know what comes and goes.

    My wife was actually in a pretty decent mood last night so I was brave enough to bring this up. If looks could kill I would be 6 feet under right now, haha.

    I suppose it depends how big a space you have. In my last house (1600 sq ft) having more than three sets was too many. In the new house.... I haven't even begun to fill the space. I think...5 or 6 sets right now, and I just sold a pair of VM30s!

    I have been wanting to try out a pair of maggies as well. SAS is a real disease and the only cure is good beer and music.
