      I havent glued it yet as I suspect some 3m di-noc oak effect vinyl wrap is in my future. If I'm lucky.

      It was glued on to my last sub. If the lamp has to go I think that would be a guaranteed deal breaker for her, and I have fallen in love with this thing already.

      Wait until it is dark, then invite her to watch the latest movie with a good soundtrack. When she amazed by the sound then you are home and dry. Personally I would move it over next to that cabinet where the balloon is.... The lamp on top is a dead giveaway.

      Not enough gap between that and the fireplace, plus where it is you cant see it from the doorway or the first seat on the corner sofa, which is her favourite seat. The lamp was already on top of the old sub, it was just 1/3 the size.

      The mrs?
      Sold shes your problem now.
      You do realise though, when a redhead shows you the middle finger she is telling you how many seconds left you have to live.
      I'm frantically cleaning the house to pristene condition and rattling off the list of diy jobs she wants done to try to soften the blow.

      She was that pleased she came home to a painted hall, replaced light fittings and pictures hung etc that it too her a few hours to notice. When she finally did she wasn't happy with the colour but didnt mind the size so I have ordered some oak effect vinyl wrap. I'll document the process. She likes it the perfect height to put a wine glass on.

      Camouflage it and day by day remove bit's of the camouflage. It then becomes part of the furniture. A magazine rack should do it - worked for me :)

      I also have a cycling problem along with my AV addiction. My latest bike arrives next week and I will hide it in the garage. I usually find a generous gift/weekend away/spa voucher provides sufficient cover for larger purposes.

      My biggest concern now is that the tinnitus might be permanent.
      Double dropping yokes with eamon develera seem to be right at the resonant frequency of my plasterboard, you can literally watch the walls tremble.

      I find that medicating the Mrs works a treat.
      Not only will she appreciate the music more it might just be a great marital aid

      Does your wife share your enjoyment of good music and movies? If so, have you sought her opinion as to whether (or not) she considers your new sub to be of sonic benefit? How much did you pay for it? She might, on one hand, chide you for not having consulted her before buying it but, on the other, admit that it's quite a good addition to your AV system.

      She likes the fact its the right height to place a wine glass on. She appreciates it for music, but the crap films she watches there arent many explosions in.

      You can try the Donald Trump approach to truth and tell her it has always been there and she must have missed it.
