you are a FUNNY man, you should take that act on the road... Now, since you made that comment please give us your recommendation
This guy is looking for help not side comments between each other.
Have you looked at Mirage speakers they are small and compact and give a very nice room filling effect. I like defTech's but i also respect the other brands out there. Remember, its' your ears you have to please and live with, I think you should try out your top two choices, take a set home and see what you think. Speakers heard in a store most times sound very different at home and it does make a differance which AVR you are using, Yamaha, Pioneer and Onkyo...do sound different for the same set of speakers.
If you shop at BB or CC you do get a 30 day retun, USE IT, if your first choice just didn't sound good at home they will understand. I just wouldn't try to review more than two sets of speakers. So weed out your options in the store. If you want to go with a brand that if only online, measure they have a return option (all money back less shipping) Crutchfield has free shipping and retun on their speakers and stuff.
Which ever speaker systen you choose, i'd use your JLB for now (you will notice a drop to 8" sub) and save that extra cash to upgrade to a better sub down the road, HSU, eD, SVS, Super-Cube and may others all in the $350-$700 range.
