Yeah, but compression will be strong past 100W on most speakers. A dynamic speaker is one with less compression. One way to do that is to play them within their linear range, well below maximum...

Matter of taste, so try to audition all of them and decide for yourself. The low sensitivity of the Revel and B&W (87 dB) would worry me, but if you are not looking for loud them I would probably go...

Reference at 20 feet is hard to reach for home speakers. You lose 16 dB going from 1 m to 20 feet (not counting any room gain here). So assuming 100 Watts, you need 101 dB sensitivity to reach 105...

Similar specs; one is front-firing and the other down-firing. Buy the one that fits your decor best. Else Klipsch has better brand name recognition for later resale.

They have the base pointing the up straight? Huh?

Which are you referring to about low power and reference level? The Heresy III won't do reference at 20 feet unless you factor in room gain. The...

Disagree. Why would down-mixing several channels to two be identical? All you need are two speakers if you are listening to stereo content, but not HT, and certainly not if there's more than one...

On some receivers, after calibration, 0 dB corresponds to reference level. (What happens if the receiver can't reach reference?)
On other receivers, like my (old) HK AVR 254, 0 dB means maximum...

I agree. That plot isn't too bad at the crossover point. I'd worry more about the bloat at higher mid-frequencies.

Definetally a third La Scala II as center; the Heresy III won't sound as dynamic.
For surrounds, KPT series (Cinema lineup) work well.

(Maple syrup is a weird example because it's pretty much price-controlled by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (FPAQ))

Used Klipsch Heritage HT. Klipschorns on the long wall corners, center La Scala, KPT series surrounds. This would come in way under 10K, even if the surrounds were bought new.
