Now I'm pretty much sold on SS8s if I can confirm they wouldn't need much open space around them if they are high-passed at @80Hz. I always thought those passive radiators needed a lot of open space.
I'll need to stew on this for a bit.
I am sorry to say this, but your problem is your room, not your speakers nor your preamp nor your subwoofer and unless you address the elephant in the room which is room acoustic, no amount of money will buy you the sound you are looking for
You can keep trying to swap out speakers, swap out amps, add subwoofer and play with cross-over settings, but it still won't sound good in your room with current placement..
What you really should do is take a look at this tutorial from GIK acoustics and take some measurement of your room, try to address the frequency response in your room to the best you can, then think about buying new equipments....
