I suspect that you will be disappointed with the bass on the mini lore monitor. Have you seen the detailed review of the Lore in HTS...if not, here is the link.
the key point is that they measure the Lore's low point cut off around 40 hz....for this measurement, the Lore is well into the room and measured near field thereby getting very little room reinforcement. Yes, it plays to 30 hz....but its down almost 20db.
In my room, placed closer to walls and one corner and with music with known frequency ranges, it will play with authority into the high 30's. I regularly get to listen at a friends house who has M&K subs that play down to 20hz...and you would be surprised with only one sub playing and music that really doesn't dip below 30hz very often, what having a sub does for impact, immediacy, and sound stage depth.
Since the Lore has a 10" driver and a large box, I'm guessing that the mini lore monitor, even with decent room reinforcement, doesn't have much impact below 55hz. So, if you want the Lore sound/voicing and the Lore impact, I suspect that you will have to give a sub a try. The reason I mentioned the SVS is because its small, a 14" cube....it can play to 22hz at 90db....and have almost flat line response up to 200hz....thereby making a 60-80 hz crossover a breeze. And best of all, its only $650 and they pay the return shipping after 45 days if you really don't like it.
If you opt not to wait for the mini lore monitor, what are you considering for choices 2 and 3?
One last comment on freight....I live in Florida and at the time I purchased the Lores, the "estimated shipping" cost was around $100....but when I placed the order and gave a final delivery point, the actual number turned out to be $150.....not a total surprise since I'm pretty far from Orem, Utah....and delivery took 4 days via fedex.
