i built my 88 first and then the f15's cause I liked the look of the 15" SEOS horns aligned horizontally and vertically and at the time it all fit just under the then 80" TV.
The HTM line was still in the works but as announced the design theory was the consistency of voicing for the entire line, for those to whom this could be a factor.
a higher or lower xo is a matter of the electronics and is applied science - if anything it is the room / lack of treatments that's going to screw things up
my F15's are "small" per the AVR and the xo is 80 hz.
for the HTM12's, no doubt, the xo will be in that range, the 15" horns are going to command attention if not behind the screen
maybe Erich can discern the difference between the CD's but after processing thru the crossover, it's close to a moot point, IM no-nothing O.
the F15's are slightly more sensitive per the DIYSG notes
if anything, matching LCR for HTM 12's and the money not spent on a triplet of F15's could be used for a second (and generally recognized as needed (mandatory) sub.
waiting to see what you do - - and of course , the pics .
