So apparently my speakers have been at customs for the past four days. I hope they at least get shipped tomorrow.

Nope. They've been rejected by customs because of incomplete paperwork or something.

Looks like its time to fire those missiles at their headquarters... everything will be alright if you fire them from your office, cause no one will be able to hear the missile launch.

Yikes. Bad news. Where did you purchase the monitors from? If that doesn't work out you may want to check out the M-Audio DSM3s that audiomidi has on a huge closeout for $600 a pair (they were originally $2k a pair):

They are supposed to be the business, no joke. What type of sub have you decided on?

I thought you generally didn't like active monitors...

Well, there's definitely trade-offs but that works both ways... built-in amplifiers also means the potential to do filtering and equalization through DSP which is way more effective. In addition, there are only so many passive monitors out there to begin with. Choices are much more open with a set of actives. If I could get those as a passive version I totally would though.

Interesting, I'll check it out. My ADM9Ts are still IN customs, however - they're just staying there until this gets figured out.

I got AVI's matching sub. The whole thing cost over 3k. Most money I've ever put into audio equipment at once. Let's hope I get my investment :P

Hooray! After two weeks of "Clearance Delay," they've finally been processed! Maybe they'll even be shipped today!

Looking good, even sexy (in a square-ish way... yet, sexy).
Best of luck with those :)

Yes. The whole house shook. :D

Aaaaand here they are in the office. Next step will be to build speaker stands, then a desk. I'd build the desk first, but I need my dad's help (and tools) and he's out of town this week.

Mmm, your speakers just look like they're dying to be pounded by lots of bass heavy music.

Probably because THEY ARE.

I'm off to the store soon to get material for speaker stands. They'll look something like this, except a LOT prettier.

Are you going to get mopads for the tops of the stands? Or build a little absorber for that too?

Perhaps. I'm planning on covering the two vertical beams and the top with some leftover felt. Mopads may be slightly better, but I have better things to spend my money on.

Yeah they are a bit pricey. but they are sturdy and you can change vertical angles with em and actually you could just buy one of them and use half for each stand since it comes as 4 parts.

Felt would work if its not too thin though, even if it is you could use a bunch of layers to solve that.

I just really like mopads haha
