    2nd speaker installed, old speaker hole patched. But, the spackling is not drying as fast as I would like. In other words, I got busted! The Mrs came home and, well you know the drill. In the end, she was happy with the new speakers, just that I need to finish the spackle job and repaint.

    A well-conceived and fairly well-executed operation. Congrats on not getting executed yourself!

    They are the main speakers for the living room. WAF would not allow anything else. Main purpose is for casual listening, friends over at the house, walking around the 1st floor kinda stuff. Plus I got Jesse's sub hooked up in the living room as well.

    Oh ok, cool. I was just having a hard time picturing the room layout, due to how the couch was positioned. I'm sure they sound great.

    Did they come with grilles?

    Yep. Low profile white grills. There is another couch on the other side of the room as well. More optimal listening position.

    I cant believe you did all that work and left that ratty looking speaker wire rather than get some good 10 gauge OFC cables in there... :p

    I thought about it, but since this setup is for non-critical listening, I decided to keep it. Besides the wires were all stapled in place, I couldn't use it to pull new wire through.

    Looks really good! And I am sure the sound quality has improved exponentially.

    I have done many a covert operation like this, but fortunately both my wife and I travel a lot for work, and when she’s gone I have multiple nights to complete the op before she returns...

    Did I mention I hate sparkling? :smile: It’s like a virus, the fallout keeps spreading! Patch is growing larger and larger to feather out to the wall. 2nd coat, now more sanding!

    At least the wall speakers are operational, and they sound exquisite!

    Now might not be a good time to point out that in order to match the paint, you might just have to do that entire wall....

    Hehe! Already got some paint to match! The wall paint is less than a year old, so still pretty free from fading. Had to do other work in the room, got the same color/formula and it match well.
