FYI Sunfire originally was about subwoofers a long time ago when Bob Carver was behind them....don't know much about their speakers though.
Thanks, yeah the bass would be glaringly missing until I added a powered sub. I can't find many reviews on these satellites and center other than the professional review that S&V did that I linked above. They must not have sold a bunch of these speakers...they're on sale currently at all the big sites (Amazon, Newegg) but there are no reviews to accompany the listing which seems odd to me. Maybe they were overpriced for most consumers at $400 and $500 for satellite and center channel, respectively. Bob Carver was mentioned in the S&V article as the designer of these as well.
It seems the mighty AVS forums have spoken and I should look elsewhere for some bookshelves to meet my current needs. I hear good things about BIC bookshelves...
