Default Acoustic Audio Center Channel Speaker

I did talk to the folks at The Deep Discount. They were really helpful and did say that some people did call back and complain about the center channel speaker because it is 19+ inches wide -- so it doesn't fit between 2 studs -- so I need to make a fast decision before the sheetrock goes up and ask my builder to frame a little opening to fit that speaker -- my only problem is it is going above a newly installed gas fireplace and we don't know at which height to put it yet. I could put it really high, but from what I have read, it is probably not the best to put over the TV, but I may be wrong.

I was approached a couple of times ten years ago in a Home Depot parking lot. I fell victim the first time and paid $150 for some tower speakers. They sound ok and they are in my kids room. I took the licence plate down and tracked it down and it had just been purchased and hadn't been registered to the new owner yet. Called up the owner the vehicle was registered to and bitched out an old man who had just sold the vehicle. Sorry gramps. The same scam was attempted on me a few months later. I told the guy I didn't have enough money, but that didn't stop him. He put the speakers in my van before I said I would take them. He told me that he would meet me at the bank across the street. I said ok. Somehow I got lost trying to find the bank-bad me!

You can burn me once.

P.S. Don't monkey with a monkey!

Also on EBay.
When I first moved to Austin, I needed work and "worked" for some of these puds. Didn't realize they were selling s#!++y speakers till around noon when I mentioned I wanted a pair and the guy filled me in on the scam. Needless to say I bailed at lunch not even caring to be paid. The guy I rode shotgun with was really good at the ripp. From 8 to noon he had sold 6 pairs. Left me with a nasty feeling
