Pardon me if this is a really stupid question... It may be. I see a bunch of identical L/C/R and hear a lot about the directivity of the waveguide. Does that mean that the SEOS would be a bad choice for music vs HT? My use for speakers is 70-80% music, 15% listening to gunfire and explosions while the kids play yet another FPS (what happened to Scrabble!?) and the rest is movies. A lot of my listening right is off axis (left of the left speaker) from my kitchen or side of the room but that usually does not bother me for casual background listening.
As I am looking into getting (or building) some good speakers my #1 priority is a smallish footprint (bookshelf-ish) that will give me a full sound from a variety of locations. Would an SEOS 12 setup do that? I also plan to audition the Soundfield monitor 1. I know this is probably an apples to oranges comparison but budget wise, using one of Erich's $390 flat packs as an example, an SEOS-12 L/C/R plus a sub (even a commercial one, let's say the SB12) and two monitors and a center but no sub are probably in the same ballpark. I wonder if they're a worthy comparison.
