Just an update: a single speaker arrived on Friday(they didn't even get the day right, let alone the rest of the order.)  UPS now says 2nd will arrive on Monday. 

I haven't unboxed the first on the oft chance the second half of the order will be wrong and I will have to return both.
The specs for the speaker say they are 43" tall, the box is 48".   Now I'm hoping I didn't buy too much speaker for my space.  Have to wait and see......
I guess I can always turn them down.

That's gotta be frustrating, but hopefully it will all work to your satisfaction.

Big speakers don't automatically mean more loudness/volume. The JBL XPL-160 speakers I mentioned have the ability to bring the house down, but they also sound incredible at lower volumes.

The second speaker arrived around noon.  George came over to help unbox and set them up and, in typical George fashion, did all the work.
Speakers are actually pretty good looking.  I ran the auto calibration x3 just to make certain the results were all the same. 
High volume or moderate, the speakers sound great and, physically they fit exactly where I wanted them. 
So far testing has included a collection of classics like the Ride of the Valkyries, the 1812 Overture and 10 or so others.  Sound wasn't bad at all.

More to follow.....

Awesome! Glad to hear that worked out. I'll have to keep that brand in mind.
