Can you give us some specs on your room, intended use (movies or music or both, and if so, what percentage), WAF requirements, placement options, etc?

Yes, we still want to know.
Here is my take concerning those on "the fence"
If you have a small or medium sized room the SongTower's (with or without the RAAL) will perform very well. If you plan to cross to a subwoofer (or multiples) they'll perform very well in large rooms too. The Super-Charged SongTower's will give you a slimmer profile and I'd imagine more headroom as far as maximum SPL levels go due to the superior woofers; you'll also get more midrange resolution. Finally, the RAAL's are worth it for everything but rap, R&B, rock or heavy metal music; even if you listen to that stuff you'll still want the RAAL's if you're as finicky as I am.
I would guess the Super-Charged ST's sound identical to the HT2-TL's above 100Hz minus dispersion characteristics, with the former having better dispersion due to the smaller mid woofer. The Veracity will give you better bass slam and more depth, while the SC-ST's will have better dispersion; only you can choose which is better suited for you.
I hope that helps.
