    Hi Jeff,

    I don't think there's anything to worry about, except maybe the possibility of them falling off. I'd try to find something fairly thin, and a little bit soft to put under them---- maybe a mouse pad, or placemat or something.

    Congratulations on the great deal on the 55i's. Who could blame you for jumping on that?.. Hey.... this thread reminds me of that Natalie Portman page that I didn't get finished looking at....What was the thread? "For Micah"??:)

    wow! great purchase!:D

    i don't see any problems of placing the 55's on top of the 7b's. i am assuming you are not using the 7b's since they are not working properly? as long as the 7b's(non sheilded pair) doesn't get too close to your tv. and, if i am understanding correctly you want to run 2 rt25i's on top of each other? this shouldn't cause any problems, but i don't know if you will acheive anything with it either. i am running 35's on top of 800's (check out the system showcase for pics.), and TUI runs 55's on top of 2000's, but in both of these applications, the 'top' speaker is compensating for a 'weakness' in the 'lower' speaker. ie. my 35's are helpind clear up the upper middle and hi range of my front's output. same concept wih 55's/2000's. putting 2 identical speaker's ontop of each other? i don't know if you would gain much? just more of the same sound...
    ...the fOrce is strong with this one.
