+1 the HTD Level 3's and the KEF Q setup.

FYI, discounted prices on the KEF Q series on http://www.accessories4less.com/. (Many in the KEF Owners Thread purchase there.)

If your primary listening is going to be HT/surround then I would lean towards the Ascend 340's - I think that setup has an advantage re the center speaker matching the LR mains.

Set the crossover for the KEF eggs at 100hz and you'll likely notice a better sound. (Most avr's will let you set the surround crossover separately from the center and mains.)

I'd recommend a 3rd Q100 as a center.

And as someone else alluded to ... If it makes sense in your room/space you can use the left over Q100 as a back speaker in a 6.1 setup.

Bass below a certain frequency is non directional, i.e. you can't really tell where the sound is coming from. (Which is why you can usually put your sub anywhere in the room.)

Prefer SVS subs over KEF subs.

Prefer KEF speakers over SVS speakers.

Actually my current system is KEF speakers with an SVS sub :)
