I think I'll get one of the AC Infinity fans and exhaust the heat from my Denon to be safe.
My C2 is phenomenal and I'm wrestling with grabbing some T1s for the living room. You'll enjoy them greatly.

I always loved the looks of them. Some day I’m going to get some. Do they sound “bright” as I’ve heard some say? It sounds like it’s a matter of opinion, from what I’ve read.

No, only the old R series is extremely bright. The new series less so. The RP series of now and later are not bright, at least as some project them to be. They may come off a bit forward due to it being a horn design.

But you are right in the sense that everyone has their own tastes.

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

I’m glad you made up your mind! I have too. My choice is basically the same as yours. My only debate at the moment is T1 or T2. Granted it’s a $500 decision, but I’m still debating that part of it.

Get the T1’s and throw the extra money to a better or additional subwoofer.

I have two SVS Subs, so I didn't feel the extra $500 for the T2s would gain me anything. All HTs need a Sub. If you don't have one, I'd go with T1s and purchase a Sub

I used to have the R-28F and those were bright but then I got the RP8000f ( the ones on the pic ) and those are very good. You can listen for hours without getting tired

t1+ sub is a better investment if on a tight budget...
