Now I remember. You had another thread.
If you start a thread stating something like "Need Dedicated HT Room Setup with $12000 Budget," then you'll find out what people on here will suggest. Instead, you've just been asking for advice on active setups, and the other thread I saw was not very active.
There are some members here who know about amazing passive setups. For example, these JTR Noesis 228HT: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1458711/jtr-noesis-228ht-the-best-speaker-you-never-heard-of-for-1200-pricepoint
Might want to give it a shot and see what people say. Look at how active this thread was with suggestions AND discussions over any of yours: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1485582/dedicated-home-theatre-for-budget-of-10-000-to-12-000-help-me-out-guys-i-need-some-ideas
Meanwhile, consider that local installers probably might not advise you any of those types of suggestions because they won't be able to sell you any product.
