Definitely look at the Wave Crest speakers then. You can thank me later. ;)

I'm confused here; you mentioned wanting a 2.1 "desktop system" but then you threw in the XTZ 95.44, which is a tower speaker. How big is this desk of yours? ;)

It might be better to decide on a...

Seems to be a lot of that going around. My delivery was originally scheduled for Thursday but I couldn't work from home that day, so I contacted UPS and had them switch it to Friday. This morning I...

It would be due more to that phenomenon than anything with the speakers. The change in SQ is not related to anything with the speakers because they're the exact same as they were. It's the subs...

Not sure I follow you here. The speakers output is being rolled off by the crossover point, so anything below losses power fast. How would adding more subs diminish the burden in a part of the...

I bought one of these (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0017I3K9M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to isolate the cable line and it worked very well. Hum is now gone.

If you can afford the SVS that would be a good option. They make some nice subwoofers, and I know they have distributors all over the world. Since you can't get HSU or BIC, what other company's are...

Where is "here"? Without knowing where you're located it will be difficult to make suggestions as most of the people reading this are in the US and Canada.

Is it possible you have the infamous cable TV ground loop issue? I know the PE amps are highly susceptible to that.

The Anti-mode can only smooth over peaks, it can't fill in nulls associated to room modes, so placement is still key to good sound regardless of the EQ system you use.
