It will be interesting to hear how you feel the new setup compares.
I will report back when I have them set up for sure. I am certain I will not be disappointed but hold a very high bar after knowing what the 215s sound like in my space.

I already have a Seymour Retractable Electric 137.7" with Center Stage XD installed that drops down in front of a 65" Panasonic Plasma (65VT60) in the family room, so will continue to use that. I have about 17.5" between the screen and built-in cabinets, so I will have the added placement options of fitting all 3 210RTs (with16.5" depth) behind the screen.. Will need to experiment to see how imaging and soundstage will be affected by having the speakers set up not as wide as how I have the 215s set up now.
I am not 100% certain on placement of 4000ULF, but yes, anywhere I put it, I expect to put part of the sectional right in front of it to "hide" it a bit. My initial thought is to put it back left corner along sidewall with drivers facing into that corner about 30" away. I'll post some pictures of the room later.

Music in 2.0 coming from the 215RTs in pure direct, (No assistance from my Cap S1) sounds so incredible. I am definitely wondering if I will miss the extra extension the 215RTs have over the 38hz of the 210RTs. Also wondering how the soundstage will be affected going from two 15" drivers to two 10" drivers...
At the same time I am also VERY excited to experience the 4000ULF. Everyone has talked about the crazy amount of output, but two major things I am hoping for is:
1. Significantly higher tactile feeling even at the same volumes as before due to going from sealed to ported as well as having much more headroom at 10hz
2. Not losing any of the tight, precise bass qualities that I've experienced with the Cap S1 and formerly with Seaton Submersives
