Totally support buying local if Sound Hub can still get hold of the PB12-NSD, but if not Rapallo have it for the same price (including shipping):

I’ll admit to having bought my sub sound unheard, which isn’t ideal for sure but at that point no one stocked them locally; I didn’t regret the purchase for a second.

 

And, honestly, their size is such that they make a great coffee table (more often, a wine table!).

Was reading that thread on the subs, started to fair s*&t myself reading some of those prices for the new models, although good to see there is the possibility of still getting the pb12-NSD as that price is far easier for the wife to swallow (unless I Don’t tell her lol). Although I imagine the physical size of the sub may be just as offputting for her, but I can just continue to talk things up to get her to see my way :-)

Started also hunting suitable wall mounts for speakers which is proving to be quite difficult. The existing rear speaker wires are on the wall behind the couch quite high (approx 1 foot from the ceiling) so need to be able to turn left/right and tilt down, as well as be capable of holding 6kg of speaker. This is the next mission.

Depending on what you're after, there are speaker brackets that will take that weight no problems, though the bigger issue may be depth.

I bought some sets off Trade Me that are similar to the Pivoteli brackets of the '90s. They work fine for both my sets of rears, and can be easily adjusted L/R (just pivot) and up/down with the knob at the bottom. Here's a photo of them, taken on a weird angle so you can see more of the bracket.

You can see that I had the same need to point them down, due to having to put them relatively high on the wall.

 

Looking on Trade Me the same brackets are still sold, as per the link below, but I'm sure there are other options out there that can take deeper speakers.

Awesome, cheers for that link, they look to be exactly the type Im after. Although weirdly they appeared in any of my searches through trademe for brackets, unless I skipped through them when searching.
