I need some advice on how to convince my wife I am not going overboard and to be 90% supportive of the project. I am planning what I believe to be a reasonable project with a modest room size, home built speakers, and listening to her advice when she didn't want to see any of the speakers. She believes that since I have been reading the forums I have become an audio snob, and I am spending way too much on the speakers. Speakers that I wouldn't be able to discern from cheaper speaker choices. The speakers are estimated to be about ~$2000 in drivers, crossovers, subs, and amps for a 5.1 system. While I admit there are cheaper options, but the quality to price ratio is very good. Have you been in this situation before and if so how did you turn your spouse around so they are more supportive and understanding.
