i think some of the music we listen to might fall in the "bass heavy" category, but certainly under 20% overall.
don't have a sub and would prefer to avoid getting one for as long as possible, even though this is likely to turn into 5.1 eventually down the road.
i would like speakers that would "fill" our living space with sound, if that makes sense, not just a great HT experience in the MLP.

i hope i got all the terms right - i've been trying to read a lot, but am only getting overwhelmed with info...

For that size room, it sounds like the towers (and Horizon for center) would work best for you.

I posted this link in another thread where the OP's situation is somewhat opposite of yours. The link is to a thread on the Ascend forum, that might be worthwhile for you to check out.
You don't need the speakers that poster has (custom vertical Horizons), you can basically substitute the Towers. The implication as far as output is similar. I have about a 14'x14' (opening to larger room)x 7.5' room and the Sierra 2's fill it well. Because I have problems integrating a sub in the room, I'm toying with the idea of stepping up to towers and a horizon center- but I can also easily envision where that will be overkill (and at nearly 3x the cost, likely not worth it) since my listening point is between 7'-10' from each speaker (HT only, so it's a fixed point).
The towers definitely sound more up your alley.
