I see this a lot but I always saw it opposite since the 15 has a lower crossover point which means the CD needs play lower. At a certain point doesn't that limit output of the CD? Can the CD with a low crossover still exceed output of the 15 can do in the frequencies below it ?

here's a pic of my 1099's. The tower's are 54" tall and i have the waveguide around 39"-40". the center is below my 61" DLP.

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.
Again I would say any speaker that's using the SEOS-15 waveguide will give you a larger/wider soundstage over a speaker using the SEOS-12 waveguide.

JTR Noesis 228HT (LCR)
Axiom Audio QS8 surrounds
Sherbourn PA 7-350
Pioneer VSX-21TXH
JVC RS45
Falcon Screens FVHD105
Dual PSA XS30's (gone but not forgotten)
