Enjoyed both articles ... doing similar thing in my system using the sub to free up placement of my Sasha's just on a much smaller scale. Would love to hear that setup though!

Thanks for the links. I just made the big plunge to go from Alexias to the Alexx.
They are breaking in and sound fantastic.
