In the days before I became a Polkie, I was big into Infinity.
My first pair of speakers were Infinity SL40. Beautiful finish, solid wood vineer. My reciever of the time was an older Technics. Purchased in the infant days of 5.1, I had no idea what I was doing. I eventually blew the speakers.
Always intending to repair them, they were kept in the storage room of my house. Flash forward some 5-6 years later, we remodeled the house. Never fixed the SL40's.
I bit the bullet and had them incenerated in the backyard of a friend's farmhouse. I did it to make room in my own house.
still can't believe I did that..
