I'd second that. "HO" just brings to much baggage to the table. I'd seriously look at renaming it too.

I've read the Dr. recommending placing the sub in close proximity to the viewing area (couch). Was always a firm believer of having the sub up front in a corner though.

Geez, I just got the STF3 and the forums already call it a sub "stuck in max extension" like it is inferior already.
