Having dual drivers doesn't change extension if the volume per driver is kept the same (and no additional EQ is applied)... well at least not until the point where dynamic compression limits the low...

Personally, I thought the A1b (predecessor to the A1rx-c) was a better speaker than the HVL-1... but I did not compare these two directly.

I thought the A1b had better bass extension (noticeably...

The WT/MW design used in the 10.CM is intended for horizontal use... it's not a speaker you should place vertically. Now the 10.CS would be fine oriented vertically.

Well... only if you use a lower stand... Otherwise, the tweeter is the same height (or close to it) as with the bookshelf... you just have a taller speaker with a woofer above the tweeter.
