I've owned some kg 3.5's for many years now. My room sucks and there is nothing I can do about it really. I've heard the klipschs sound much better in other rooms. The main issue is seating distance. 20x14 room with short wall placement leaves me 14ft from the speaker. Even with a crown xls 1500, I'm seeing about 95-100 db with music. It's just not loud enough. Both the kg's and the fusion 8 are rated at 94db/1m. So....am I going to see any more volume from something like the fusion 8? What about soundstage and imaging? The 3.5 has a smaller horn vs. the 4.5/5.5 of the same series. Would and 8" waveguide improve that? I'm ok with ht, it's music where it's lacking.
