My wife calls my power amp "Frankenstein's Monster." She gave up when I brought in the Snell Type A's.

Why do women have a zillion shoes???? When I go rummaging thru her shoe selection I hear the "Oh those don't fit right" or the " I don't have anything to 'go' with those"
My "allotted" space is a little over one square foot......She doesn't seem to mind the 'altitude' of said speakers. "It's to get the speakers up to 'ear level'"*****that's my refrain...& it seems to work......so far. I suppose I could stretch it out to two square feet, but that's about it.
Turning it up to drive "them" out seems to have the opposite effect in our household as she was "raised" on the likes of Iron Maiden.

My wife's solution was to make sure I had a room of my own as soon as we started our lives together..

There is no stereo equipment anywhere else in the house, there is a boombox and both of our computers have powered speaker systems, mine of course is tube powered..

The room is not as small as it appears and there is quite a lot of stuff in here. The acoustics are surprisingly good, the best I've ever had including in a purpose built audio room. (This room was actually built with it in mind, but it is still a work in progress.)

Top left shelf is a Mitsubishi DA-F10 FM stereo tuner, next to it is a McIntosh MR-71 tubed stereo tuner..

In that case, it's probably more about a control issue she has rather than your loudspeaker. Some women (and men) have neurotic control issues that express in strange ways like this.

Unfinished projects and parts laying around the house may be signs of control issue as well. Especially, when their owner keeps other things like tooth brush for example in proper order.
