You do realize any speaker you hear on youtube is going to sound exactly like your computer speakers?

If the other speakers end up being too tall, I bought this about a month ago and really enjoy the sound (and fits your budget of $399 per PAIR)

I went to listen to definitive today and came home with a pair of bp-8020st for $850. I was only looking to spend under $500. The manager offered me $500 for a set of bp6b. Then I listened to the 8020 and he gave me $1000 for a pair. I bargained down to $850. What do you think on the price?

Interesting. As long as you like the audio quality, it sounds like a decent price.
The BP6B has 5-1/4" woofers compared to 3-1/2" in the 8020. U sure the mid-range is as good or even better? I have not heard them so I wonder.

That is one way, to fix the woofer on your JBL L880

Lol. No. I've already ordered the replacement driver for the jbl. I'm putting the definitive in the living room.

I play the definitive side by side the jbl earlier. I was very please with the sound the definitive put out but still think my jbl sounded better.

The definitive definitely needs to break in.

My CLR-2002 needed about 10 hours of loud playing for them to open up.

Yeah. I went with the 8020 because of the built in power sub. I don't have room for a separate sub. As of right now they sound very good. Can't wait for them to be broken in.
