    No tuning involved at all. As simple as placing on the floor and you can use one or more depending on the room.

    Thank you guys!!
    It is sounding very good and the speakers are currently breaking in and getting better every day.
    The color is so awesome .... depending on the lighting they can look different from many angles, but really a good choice.

    From your avatar (update pending?) it looks like you moved from Alexia 2 (?) and ARC Ref160m, but I could be wrong on the amps. Can you tell us more your new choices? (Which look fantastic, those speakers always have kind of been a little crazy looking to me, but by all accounts sound amazing, as is your color choice.)

    congrats on the new kit.

    Bob I can elaborate more on this later after I have more listening and break-in time.
    Yes I did have Alexia 2's and ARC Ref. 160's prior to this although I was using the Boulder 1160 for a number of months with the Alexia 2's.
    What I can say at this point is that Boulder amplification exceeds anything I have experienced to date for my sonic preferences.
