Not scared of it, moreso the kido and tearing up the corners in the future. Hence the roundovers and Duratex. The finish on my sub has been awesome and easy to clean up any spills that got on it.

Better than a Soundbar = YES by far.

Cleaner = NO

To put it in perspective I have in my main system downstairs the following:

LSi 15
LSiC
LSi F/X
B&K 375 @ 4 ohm amp

The T90e is basically the Monitor 60's, so any of the Monitor series (CS1, CS2) would be timbre matched.

For better in wall suggestions, I'd call Polk directly.

What sub? If sub is decent, RTi A5's IMHO. Otherwise A7's.... A5's easier to drive w/ AVR you have. Go big or go home on center. CSiA6 or CSi5.
