Edit: I'm also open to the coffee table idea, though I haven't the first clue on how to make a THT look good as a coffee table. Open to inspiration there.

Edit: just saw that your going to move the furniture around. Here is a link to my THT horn thread. I made them look like columns. Just to give you another idea of how a fridge sized sub can be hidden. But no matter how they are hidden, they will always be a big location commitment.
Wow, honestly I think that's 80% better when it comes to the WAF, but we still have the issue of placement. In their ideal location, they'd be blocking the windows or fireplace. Based on the functional and cost effectiveness of the THT/F-20 approach, that seems to be the best idea functionally, but practically I just don't see how it would be possible, unless someone really creative can show me some strategic placement based on the photos etc of the above.
It seems like end-table subs are my option. I do like the idea of the functional difference that a sealed design makes. I heart extension.
That said, I just got an idea. It's a crazy idea, but it just might work. What about having the THT/F20 in the loft? Here a photo of it. The short wall that's barely in the left side of the photo is the wall that overlooks the living room.
I'll have a large desk in there, eventually with a 27" iMac and two 27" displays flanking it. I'm not 100% about placement yet, but I assumed an L against the short wall and against the adjacent big wall. I'll also have either some bookshelf speakers for that sound system, or I'll use my current Polk Monitor 70's for the stereo. If there's a big sub already up there, I could just use it for both?
Anyway, is the loft idea an option? I think the space is there? Would the THT/F20 be detrimental to neighbors?
