I owned DefTech's largest towers some years back. The integrated subs were absolutely awe inspiring, or at least I so thought at the time. One reason I got rid of them (actually gifted them to my son who lives in a high-rise building; his neighbors must love him lol), was they had an ever so slight harshness at a certain frequency that was quite grating.
Recently, I auditioned the Triton One towers. I was very impressed. A smooth presentation, never harsh, never grating, and great soundstaging, with voices uncannily coming from dead center. I would have purchased them had I not just completed setting up a full Klipsch system. While the Tritons have advantages over the Klipsch, they won't play as loud with the same slam. I'm now using an SVS Ultra Sub and a JLAudio F212.
However, all that said, and sorry for going on so long partially OT, a part of me wishes I had gone in wall. Towers are big, even in a big room, and my room is 23' x 23', open to a 12' x 23' kitchen, so 35' x 23' in all. The Klipsch rear and sides stick off the wall at least 6 to 8 inches and I certainly would have preferred in wall there.
I should have put more thought into it. I am thrilled with the resultant sound, but in wall sure is a clean look.
