How loud do you listen to your music?
This is another excellent point. The quality of the amp plays a major role in this as well as the loudspeaker. Didn't think of that angle. While I have no plans to change my amp component, I'm going to upgrade from standmounts to full size monitor... 
How loud do you listen to your music?
Thanks Shadorne. Makes much sense. You're right about the margarine. I stopped that a few years ago and went back to good old all natural butter !! I'm actually going to look at upgrading my standmount B&W's to a full size B&W monitor spea... 
How loud do you listen to your music?
I listen at an average 85 to 92 dB's to get the detail and gratification I need out of my system (B&W speakers/Marantz surround sound system). I've been reading lately that at these sustained levels year after year, hearing loss will happen. I...

Marantz or NAD
Hi Bonger:Thanks very much for the reply. That is an excellent response. I don't think anyone could have stated it better. I too had two NAD receivers in the past plus some CD players. Now I went with a Marantz A/V receiver just like you and am ve... 
Room size
My thanks to all of you who replied. It's all excellent info. I'm relieved to see that the industry defines room sizes to be small under 3500 FT3. That's what I've been trying to find out for some time now. Yes, the openings in the room can suck u... 
Subwoofer strange noise
My thanks to all of you who have responded. Sean, I appreciate the in-depth explanation regarding the adhesives. Certainly makes sense. I removed the driver from the box and operated the system. I could still hear the pop-pop sound with each beat ...
