I didn't do the math right when I said it would far surpass the JTR S2 in displacement. Redoing the math, it does, but not by a huge amount, not as much as I thought. The JTR drivers, two 18"s with...

It would seem to be more of a lateral move than an upgrade. I wouldn't bother. Make the upgrade when it is a very clear jump up in performance. I would think something like a JTR Captivator would be.

You should also consider a Hsu Hybrid 3 7.1 setup but with two VTF3s instead of one. The VTF3 mk5 is very close in performance to the VTF15h mk2 and also miles ahead of the PB2000. That would give...

That is only as you approach the singularity, the center of a black hole. In a giant black hole, if you could safely cross the event horizon, you would have a ways to go before the tidal forces shred...

You will see what I mean when you hear it, it will be cool. As for the speakers, like Henrich said, you can use the bookshelf just as easily as the center for the same channel. It's not optimal, but...

Lol, that sub at that proximity to your listening positions will be a lot of fun! Make sure you report back to use how it sounds, it should be pretty amazing.

Klipsch RF-7s, killer speakers! They should handle mid bass fine, but still, it is a larger load for the amplifier. The higher you set the crossover, the easier it is on the amp - you are using the...

You can't go wrong with the JBL Studio 530s. Doesn't leave you much room for a truly great sub though. Here is a 3.1 setup that fits your budget which gives you some very good speakers for the cost...

I would also be looking at Triad and Kef for in-walls. Kef has some killer THX in-walls. Triad has a good reputation for great in-wall speakers. What subwoofer will you be using?
