Currently running SC3D XL with two Speedwoofer 10S, powered by a Denon AVR-X4300H. Our Sony 65Z9D stands on a console, with the GE under it. Had to raise the TV 3" to clear the soundbar. Also, angled the SC3D XL upward to direct it at the listeners' ear level. The soundbar is a perfect match to the 62" width of the TV console.
In our 30X16X9 family room, open to the kitchen and a hall on one side, the sound has been very clear and, at higher levels, the sound stage is very wide. The subs are in the front corners, one behind the TV, which sits in a corner and the other behind a large chair in the other corner. Surround is currently handled by a pair of antique Realistic bookshelf speaker that have upgraded crossovers, sitting on stands. They actually do quite well.
Crossover is at 120 as Sandy recommended and I have boosted the center channel a little to make speech clearer. The bass, with the two small subs, is enough to shake the floor and I have had to turn the boost down a bit to keep the wife happy.
After listening to just about every high end soundbar I could find, both powered and passive, I couldn't find a bar that had better sound quality. In our environment, the XL provides a broader soundstage and seems to have a cleaner center channel. I could not go with any of the Atmos bars, due to the corner location of the TV, the openings in the room and the beamed ceiling.
In addition, got the SC3D XL, in brand new condition, for less than half the retail price. That made my choice a no brainer. Oh yes, my support phone call was returned by Sandy Gross. Can't beat that for customer service.
I heartily recommend the Goldenear.
