I think jtalden once said something to the effect that "Forgiveness is easier than permission."

Well, I may have to push my luck because WAF says the albums stay. After clearing the room of extra furniture/clutter and re-arranging album crates against the back wall to make room for the new HT seats, it's become clear that properly locating the mains is going to be as serious an issue as it was before. Extending the bass traps from ceiling-to-floor will eat up valuable floor space that was previously occupied by the sub. Maybe measurements will show the traps aren't needed. Maybe not. In any case it's going to be a rough experiment, because the traps won't be easily removed when there's an equipment rack on one side and a speaker on the other. The speaker will have to be moved to excavate the bottom trap, which makes for poor repeatability. Suggestions and/or comments are welcome and very much appreciated!

This main is shown 3.5ft off the front wall:

The same main sits 6.75ft from the back "wall" of crates:

The seats' full upright position have B=3ft 2in and full recline D=5ft 10in:

Re: Eeek... Wife Moving at Light Speed!

First, I'm not looking for sympathy, I'm just venting. Please skip to the next post if you're sensitive to negativity.

Start
...But this is my life, and last weekend slathered icing on a moldy cake. Best Buy's Geek Squad was supposed to install my TV wall mount on Saturday during a 4-hour window (I've gone DIY couple times without incident, but my current TV will be a seriously heavy piece of hardware suspended over seriously expensive gear. A mishap would be devastating!). Anyway, the plan was to have the A/V rack present and assembled in time to properly position the TV above the center channel. Also, express delivery would allow me to reassemble the system and run some preliminary tests with REW to familiarize myself with time domain measurements. So having put other plans aside AND having paid for overnight delivery of the A/V rack, I waited for Geek Squad's arrival. As the last few minutes of my 4-hour window ticked by, I finally decided to call and was told - after being redirected twice for a total 23 minute hold time - that I had to reschedule. Their reason vaguely hinted at an absentee installer. Trying not to go ballistic, I firmly but politely explained how lame that was, especially since I had called the night before to confirm. I then asked why nobody had bothered to inform the affected customers. Silence. I should have cancelled and hired someone else, but was able to squeeze a substantial discount out of them. Let's see if they show up Wednesday. I can only envision scenes out of the movie Money Pit: "Two weeks, two weeks!"
End

I guess I shouldn't complain because there are much worse things in life. But on my behalf, my 3-4 hour daily commute seriously undermines my free time.
Thanks for letting me vent!

Vent away Lou! You're right. There are worse things in life, but that doesn't mean that it's ok what happened to you. I deleted my own rant that I was going to bolster yours with, but just know I agree. And wish I cousins a wake up call to the brain donors who run these things.

If I had to commute for 3-4 hours a day, I'd be pretty depressed as well!.. I get annoyed if I'm travelling for just an hour!

The kind people here are holding back I think. I realize there are people with different skill sets. Some are handy with building projects, others not. I guess that's what keeps service-oriented companies and contractors in business.

So I am really helping save the economy, don't you think?!

Let's see if Geek Squad shows up this time.

Geek Squad Installation a success!
The crew showed up at the beginning of my 4-hour window and proceeded to blitzkrieg through the installation. I'll be posting pics later today - how exciting, eh?


Seats Arrive Safely... NOT!
Well, I'll make up for that with some pics of my pallett of HT seats that arrived this morning. Once again I was first on the list! Someone was asleep at the wheel of the forklift, though. Both seats were damaged; one was just scraped, but the other was punctured through the footrest. Not to worry, though. The carrier said he's never had to return one. You get to keep it because it's cheaper for the the manufacturer to just ship a new one!
