How could I miss this wonderful thread!!!
I too am owner of L2 bookshelfs and L2 center.
My sub I 'was' running is the Cadence CSX15 (sold it)
Right now we're in stages of moving, but we had family over for New Years. I brought my L2 bookshelf along w/ my Onkyo receiver down to the living room to play some jams / tunes at very high levels. The little L2's imho didn't need any help from a sub.
Our living room is 22' high open to our kitchen and that is about 46' x 35' and these speakers were awesome. Guest & friends were amazed on how these little speakers put out the sound it did along w/ bass. I too could not believe it!
As I said, I love my HTD. I did own Maggies, Polk, Onix and Yamaha's. My only happily other speakers I owned were my Rockets, but for price match, I really don't think you can beat out the L2's for it price. Once we move and settle, I do plan to get a pair of L2 towers to add to make in more fun
L2's books and center chillin and ready for the big explosions(sorry for the mess)!
