I've been trying for years to replicate the sound i want from my home theater. I have yet to find it. I'm looking for a nice balance between all freqencies without any gaps in the range. Right now I'm using Athena bookshelves as fronts and the AS-C1 center. I've never felt there was a good balance between them, the highs are overpowering, and the mids are lacking. I've tried several subs including a 3cu ft Shiva ported to 20Hz with 360 watts. I then tried a smaller Dayton DLS 10 sub. All in all, I've never liked the sound. There was always parts that were more powerful and other that were tame. My question is, can full range tower speakers fill the frequency spectrum , 30-20k? I was looking at Wharfedale Diamond 8.4's, yamaha ns-555, Axiom M60's, B&W DM330i's. I found these on Ebay for great prices. My price limit is around 450 US. I like a more laid back and warm sound and I have never owned full range towers. I can't go for big bass due to apartment living so the lack of a sub isn't a problem. You guys think it's a feasable idea? Thanks..
