    Here's what i have decided to come up with:

    Yamaha R-V1105 receiver 85w*5

    Gr Research AV1+s as mains. AV1+ shielded as center

    GR av1s as rears

    Ported Adire Tempest sonotube with 160L volume, 6" port tuned to 20hz. Yes, i know this is kinda small but high SPL midbass is very important to me. Size is another major concern. According to LSPCAD (If im using it right)I should still get fairly flat IN ROOM response between 20hz and 70hz. Group Delay is about 21ms @ 20hz.

    Does this setup sound good or should i change something?

    What Is the main use of the system? If it is music I might consider a sealed Tempest especially if sound quality is important than max SPL at low frequencies. My sealed Tempest is awesome for both movies and music.
