What I want to know is which design gives the widest horizontal performance. My seating area is wide, and I'd need speakers that give good frequency response on a +-45 degree cone for all three fronts. So a horizontal 1099 is right out for the center. I'm trying to imagine a Tempest as a center above my TV. TV is a 62" DLP, so depth isn't an issue at all, but it will be pretty high up. An 88 Special would be more practical, but I don't know how the side-by-side woofers work out is the listening area is near 90 degrees wide.
