Luc and Gaudio, Your suggestion was the first thing that came to my mind before I even posted the thread. All of my married friends' wives won't have them in the living room or they have young kids or a pet that has the run of the house. I know how the kid thing works, when my son was four yrs old, he kicked in one of the woofers just because the speaker resembled a punching bag to him. They are just too big for a small room. I don't trust them with my single friends....not responsible enough. The guy that will let me use his garage is getting the use of a pair of gorgeous Infinity Rennaisance 90 speakers that I also own, along with a pair of monoblocs and the Sunfire Theatre Grand II...he'll be well taken care of. The Kappa 9's overpower their living room and they make his wife cringe....the Ren 90's make a much better visual presentation. I am taking my Kappa 7's with me.
