    Question How many speakers do you own?

    Ok, a few people around here.....and of course my girlfriend, think I'm nuts.
    So just to show her, I'm not that much nuttier than alot of you guys.

    How many speakers are you currently housing?

    Count individually, so subs, centers can be counted.

    Not a competition.

    A) between 2-5
    B) 5-10
    C) 10-20
    D) 20-30
    E) more than 30

    E) I probably have about 40 speakers in total. Probably about 18 pairs and 4 or 5 subwoofers. I have too many to think of off hand. Sad thing is that a good chunk of them are KLH 17's. I think I'm starting to horde them but I can't tell.
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!
