So, just a quick share about my recent speaker upgrades...
I ended up sending back my 3 Philharmonic AA+ bookshelves because the bass was so powerful it was shaking the floor in front of the speakers and giving me headaches easily. Not boomy bass, nor a setup issue, just overkill for my room and me.
Another way of looking at this is bassheads should definitely try out Dennis Murphys's speakers and they also have perfectly neutral and detailed mids and highs.
So, thanks to the Black Friday pricing on the KEF Q150s, I ended up getting 3 pairs and now am using 5 identical speakers with the L12 sub in a 5.1 setup. It has just the right amount of bass and tactile response and the sound is very refined and seamless from left to right and front to back. Looks gorgeous too and I have yet to order the grilles. I was considering these initially due to the point source design and the $300/pair price sealed the deal for me.
Anyhow, I now know there is such a thing as overkill bass wise for me, but I think I might have just convinced others to take a look at Dennis Murphys's speakers because they sound a lot bigger than they are and they are pretty big to begin with.
