That would probably be your best option, then you can play with orientation and be ready of you decided to swap for a mono-pole speaker later on.
Yep, I think I can do stands. Anyone have recommendations for stands that would work that don't look horrible?

I'm probably going to go with these http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SS42 for my Definitive Technology SR-9080's or these http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SS42

Let me know if you find anything different or maybe better

Yamaha TSR 7810 with BP9060/CS7060 sounding weak

I brought TSR 7810 from Costco deal and hooked up to bp9060/cs9060. The sub did not kick in till -40db. YPAO didnt help. Yamaha does sound clear for speech however falls too thin on bass.

I switched back to yamaha ht5400 8 year old receiver and at volume lvl 10 def tech started blowing.

So far I have tried
1. Basic setup.
2. Large and small setting for tower speakers.
3. Adding sub from 1 and 2 receiver to tower speakers
4. reducing to 60hz and 100hz output
5. changing the speaker distance and enabling sound enhancer.
6. YPAO setup
7. increasing the db to +4 and played around with it.

Onkyo sound lvl 10 = Yamaha db lvl -32(Max is 16.5 db )

At this point, I am thinking of returning yamaha as it never drives the sub in def tech.

First thing I would try is doing a full manual setup, this will tell you if it's something in the receiver itself or simply in the setup.
-Run speaker wire only to the speakers
-Set the Sub dials on the speakers to 50%
-Turn off YPAO and all enhancements.
-Set your Sub setting to "none" (unless you have a separate discrete sub)
-Fronts and Center to Large
-Physically measure and set your distances
-With the volume dial at 0, run the test tones and calibrate each position to 85db, measured at your MLP(even a phone app SPL meter will be close enough for this experiment)
-Then listen to some content and adjust the subs on the speakers themselves to taste.

If this doesn't work for you then yes, something is going on with the receiver, if it does, it's simply something in the setup settings.

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

One correction on this is that Yamaha does their test tones at -30, so you'll need to calibrate to 75dB.

Highly considering a pair of Def Tech BP-9060ST with the CS-9060HD center channel.

Does anyone have the same center channel? How are you placing it given its size, weight and the fact there is a large woofer on top.

How well does the fabric hold up?
