    Theyíre big, really big and the fact is even if I love them at the current owners home once theyíre in my listening room all bets are off. Vapor audio isnít a speaker brand ive heard before so just getting some feedback here helps.

    Freightcenter takes minutes to join then all you do is type the shipping info and they show you the prices of every freight shipping service available. They offer insurance, personal assistance, residental lift gate option, etc. Look them up.
