The 802 Diamond are nice speakers. I used to own them. But I craved the dual 10" woofers in the 800 Diamond. I always thought it would be cool if B&W could take the bass cabinet of the 800 Diamond...

Audition more brands.

KEF, Revel, RBH, etc.

Then see what kind of deals you can get for the speakers.

Your room size?

What are the ceiling speakers?

You may be super sensitive to the sound.

You need to return these speakers and audition other speakers before you buy. No way around it.

Happiness and contentment is the key.

If the OP is 100% happy with the Ascend even if they don't sound significantly "better", then I say keep the speakers.

That goes for any brand.

MSRP on the RBH SX-6300 (black or sandalwood) is $2750/pair. As with all BM brands (including Revel, B&W, KEF, RBH, etc.), sale prices are often less.

Makes sense to me.

I would recommend the RBH SX-6300 towers (black or sandalwood).

Each tower will give you about 10" subwoofer bass.

One nice feature I love is that you can also actively...

If your room acoustics is truly horrible, then the sound from all speakers (including Onkyo) will sound horrible.

The real problem with Bose is that they truly don't sound better than many $50 speakers (Infinity, Pioneer, Boston, etc.).

If Bose speakers only cost $50 each, no one would care to complain. :D
