    Do you not feel like you should toe those in just a tad? I feel you about the sub. I brought home the PB10 NSD and it's very big for a 10".

    Just think how well this would sound IF you had two of the same tubes in it, instead of one RCA and one Chinese....

    Oh wait does it even work? didn't you lose a screw or nut down inside of it?

    Willow I probably should, but don't have the room. A chair goes in the corner where the tree is now. Got to so a little re-centering on the wall decor, lol.

    Thanks Joe. Yes the sound is getting better, but I still am looking for an amp to add to it.

    Cool beans. We can only do what we can only do. Looks nice and clean for sure. I will add that the lady in the right hand corner would drive me mad watching tv (I know she's there for the holidays) but I don't like anything in the screen's way.

    Thanks, there is no protective film on them. It's just light reflection on them as the room doesn't have a lot of light and I had the overhead light on as you can see the reflection on the TV screen.

    See if you can try this.

    Move the right speaker out to the light switch, put the plant between the speaker and stand. Swap the left speaker and sub.

    Like your setup VTF subs are great with the tuning. I have mine with 4" port open EQ2 and Q @ 5.5.

    I can't move the right speaker over as there is a sofa you don't see in the picture, it's a narrow space there. I usually have the speakers further forward, but moved them back for the holidays.

    BTW, I appreciate all of the advice. That room is smaller than I would like for it to be and I'm very limited to what I can do in that room. My next house if there is one will have a larger main room so I can be more flexible in my setup. That room is the main thing I don't like about our house.

    Here's a picture of what I mean.

    I'd try it anyway see how it is once done. Once it's toed in a tad it might not be that bad. Are you able to at least swap the sub and left speaker?

    Trust me I know a lot about the WAF when placing speakers.

    Problem is a chair goes when the tree is so there isn't much room. When the tree goes down after the holidays I'll see what I can do, but I think it might not look good and you know how my wife will feel about that.

    Rogue Audio M180’s I think... definitely Rogue Audio though.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Krell Evolution 505 SACD Player, Pioneer Elite SC-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    The jury is still out. The idea was to replace both of the other subs while gaining some extension and perhaps output. (I was using the Martin Logan just for 2 channel coming out of the peachtree and the SVS just for LFE; but the ML was always on and made the Dynaudio's full range which also helped with HT). I am still dialing it in for both. I definitely like it better for music as it fills my large family room (that spills into kitchen and living room) better. I think I finally just about have it dialed in, so hopefully will get to watch a good movie on it this weekend to really test it out...

    Gots me a rack. I have been swapping between the SDAs and the ERA bookshelves. Those bookshelf speakers are killers, obviously they can't touch the SDAs in overall presentation but they are great in their own way.

    ERA/Peachtree Audio Design 5s. I won them in a Karma from TonyB, they are a fun speaker and SOAK up power. They pump out some serious bass for their size, it took me by surprise. They can almost keep up with the SDAs on bass output. The high end is a little laid back which I like, the differences between the two speaker models keeps things fun switching back and forth.
