Nope, the PL-26 didn't "just happen" to fit.
Hours and hours of shopping online, and digging through this forum. I bought the speakers, receiver, and TV first, then started shopping for a cabinet. The PL-26 is big, the PL-28 is HUGE. I can't think of any cabinet that would hold it internally. The PL-28 is 10" high by 25.5" long as compared to the 26 that is 8" high by 22" long. My cabinet is the Salamander Synergy 339. The PL-28 would not fit in the open shelf, where I have the PL-26. It's only about 9" high, 8" at the spreader bar at the front edge. I think, had I bought a system with the PL-28, I would have bought a lower cabinet, and just set the speaker on top, since the TV is wall-mounted anyway. To put things in perspective, that is a 70" Sharp LED on the wall. It almost makes the speakers look small in the pictures.
