The Definitive Technology BP8060ST/CS8040/SR8040 5.x combo is an excellent deal if you can still get them for $2000. For a 14x12 room, you might even find that the built-in powered subs in each tower will be enough without adding a stand-alone sub. I have the DefTech BP7000SC in a 16x15 room and the subs in them are running at about 40% of what they can deliver but THOSE have a 14" 1800 watt powered sub in each tower. Any more than that and the low end drowns out the rest of the speaker's range. The BP8060ST have a 300 watt powered sub in each tower.
As others have said, I'd listen to the Klipsch before actually buying them. BestBuy Magnolia should have them set up. I second, third, whatever on an HSU or SVS sub, IF you are sticking with Klipsch.
