Nice clean system with great cable management, I like it. I would prefer to have the subs less visible but you gotta do what you gotta do.

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Ok I get the urge to upgrade every now and then so I will ask this question. I have Mythos ones mains, CLR2000 center, SM55's surrounds and a SCII sub. What would you say would be the benefit of upgrading to Mythos STS for mains? Its not just I would add some bass with the added sub I hope? Is there a major advantage in overall speaker performance from the Mythos Ones to STS? The Mythos Ones are dam good speakers though so I guess it would have to be a pretty big difference. Thanks for any advice or help.

I am now up to 4 subs and my number one lesson learned has been better bass is always better. Get a couple 15" subs and forget the STSs, the Mythos Ones are great mains.

Yup, ditto what Lowell said, even with my borderline obsession (lol I couldn't even think borderline with a straight face.....) with matching aesthetics, and more to the point, as Full Range as possible on "every" channel, I'll also tell you to add another Sub, it will absolutely be the best bang-4-buck item for your system, a second and then third Sub was a great improvement, even with my BP-2000's.
Your Supercube II is actually a decent sub, esp. for its size, but you really do need more, depending on your room size I'd say either a 2000 series SVS or a 12 or 15 inch HSU. (piano black to match of course....)

This might sound a little insane (go figure) but if it were me I'd add the second Sub, then the next time the bug gets you, add a matching third....then, if you still want to experiment with Full Range up front, find another SC II, (there going for between $250 & $300 right now) take it, and the one that you have and put them both, up front with your One's, hook them up Full Range and blend them with the One's. If you then decide that you really like having Full Range up front and absolutely "have" to upgrade, do so then, you can pull the SC II's and return them to Sub/LFE duty or even experiment with them as Powered Woofers for your surrounds, like you did with your Fronts, wouldn't cost you anything more at that point to play around with them. Told you it may sound a little insane.

*Warning* None of my suggestions, ideas or even thoughts have any WAF, in any way!
