My feeling is that since you are looking at employing two subs, the idea that you will be having localization issues is probably overstated, especially since it will be a concern only for the surrounds, where voices are nearly nonexistent.
As to the sub, if you are interested in sealed designs, the Rythmik L12 is said to have similar performance to the SB2000. It is heavier, and would cost more to ship (do you have a US address near the border?), but will take up less space in your room. That said, the RSL sub is quite good. Though ported, many folks have commented on it having very tight bass, good for both movies and music.
for taking time and chipping in...
If I go with CG3s, I might need to crossover @110Hz which I am reluctant... If CG23s sound good as Surrounds compared to CG3, the price difference is not much to consider them.
Reg LCR, I saw in many places throughout the forums, for AT screen (Sorry I didn't state this earlier), it would be wise to choose the same set of speakers for all three in LCR... So, thats the reason, I am going with either CG5 or CG25.
To keep things simple, I am planning to crossover all the speakers at the same level, that's why I am thinking same speaker line...
For sub-woofer, ya looked at Rythmik L12 and looks good but because I live in TX, there will be huge sales tax as well (that's one thing) but I need to carry these to India (my home country) myself as its too costly to ship it there. So weight is important for me, I will again see, its been a while since I looked at their specs and shipping charges...
. The advantage of SB2000 is they each weigh less than 40lbs which is well within airline check-in baggage rules. So, I can avoid shipping charges. Reg RSL, I always wanted a sub-woofer which can go to 20Hz if not below... RSL doesn't go that low from what I have read. I might change my mind because of a huge package deal or some but currently not thinking on that route.
Hope, I made some sense with my thinking... will you change your vote now?
