Yes, mine came with what looks like a particle board top...I assume , based on photos, that is can be peeled off, but sure didn't seem to be an easy way to do so.

ross, those EMP are capable of playing below 80 hz, but not by much...but I would still cross them at 80hz. They should do fine down to 80 and then let the sub take anything below that, and 80hz and...

The Polk Blackstone system is essentially a HtIB and those small sattelite speakers won't hit below 100hz. I would spend less on an AV- Rec and put the extra toward better speakers. You just won't...

As DS suggest above, the things that affect the sound quality the most are Speaker and subwoofer, greater than AV receiver. So the more you can spend on speakers/subwoofer, the better your system...
