Looks like I have to go with the s15 since the factors above point away from s10. My one concern with the s15 is it is boomy at the front of my room compared to s10. When I set crossover to 80Hz, will the s15 be less boomy you think?
Yes. The S15's will be less boomy with an 80-90hz crossover. You still try to give them as much space as possible. Boominess could also be from dynamic eq or other sound enhancement from your AVR.
