I've never heard the Wavecrest. I'd expect the SZ to be better though. There are quite a few reviews online as it's been around forever.

I don't think I'd go with an NHT sub. For that I'd stick to...

It really seems like NHT's SuperZero was made for you. I've had T15s and they don't deserve to be mentioned in the same post as the SuperZero.

I had a similar setup at some point. It'll definitely work but make sure that the surrounds aren't pointed directly at the listening position(s). I'd put them a couple of feet above the listener and...

You definitely can. I've had surrounds of a different brand several times, no problem.

The one exception may be if you listen to a lot of multi channel music. Then you might notice the difference.

While Beyond wasn't as insulting to intelligences everywhere as Into Darkness, it wasn't good either. I liked the 2009 ST but man, the sequels barely qualify as movies.

I really wouldn't worry about neither placement nor height differences if I were you. I'd rather have surrounds and/or rears placed a bit too high (i.e. ceiling mounted) than too low (i.e. ear...

No offense but you're a bit all over the place. You go from wanting to complete a 5.1 setup to looking at two towers while also bringing up additional amplification.

Can't you just stop using the poorly positioned ones when you place some below? I'd imagine that even entry level bookshelves at the right height would be a major improvement.

I now use mine as surrounds and cross them over at 100Hz. I doubt they go much lower than that.
