It's not even the need to run new wires, buy new speakers, or redo the theater - that doesn't bother me and I would do all of that. But shooting sound out of the top of the speaker to attempt to...

Couple comments, as I was THIS close to buying some E100s a little over a year ago. Note that the crossover frequency to the six 5.25" woofers is 150hz, so from there to 600hz you have just the...

These Noesis 212HT and 228HTs have piqued my curiosity - anybody in the southern Indiana / northern Kentucky area own a pair who is willing to demo? I'd bring my Boston VR3s to compare against.

200-250hz isn't as low as some of the other 3 ways out there, but still a bit low. A single quality 8" might well be capable of doing some really nice things down to even 50hz, but with really low...

Have you considered Boston Acoustics? In my speaker comparisons, their models always just seem to have greater clarity than the competition at a given price. They have a M350 tower for $2500.

I was thinking of trying out the towers, but what bothers me is that 160hz crossover to the dual 8" woofers. I think the second mid starts kicking in below 700hz, so you have one 6.5" mid working...
