I had a pair of TH-Spuds and going low was not their forte. They have output >20hz but they were too easy to push into distress at spirited levels. I still have a pair of the 8" drivers in the garage...

I used the JBL Angle Brackets (about $70/pair):

Yup, with the Marantz (AV-7702) setting the LCR's to large and no subs means they get the LFE channel info.
