I was considering the auction for the two caps and amp, but I think that they would overwhelm my smaller room (2300 cubic feet). I think that I will probably go with 2 18.1's from CHT. My long term plan is to get an 11.2 JTR setup, where I move the LP's to the back and just keep adding. I'm thinking of going with single slanted 8's for front heights.
I also wanted to say thanks to RMK! and Archaea for the help.
You are very welcome Mike and I know you will enjoy the T8's. I had a large crowd in the HT last night for The Avengers on BR. Waiting for the new JRT horn LCR's to arrive, I have a jury-rigged system with the Triple8LP's as the mains and Slanted 8's as center and surrounds. Although I could notice a difference from the T12 LCR's, no one else noticed (sort of an unsophisticated blind test
) the changes. They really did a great job on a very dynamic and challenging soundtrack.
I'm surprised you aren't going for that excellent deal on the Caps. You would have all the sub you need for a very long time and, there is really no such thing as overkill with bass IMHO.
