I've been away from the boards for a while - enjoying my theater rather than tinkering with it (blasphemy!) My latest project is a pair of speakers for my dad. His is a two-channel only system and he'd prefer not to have a subwoofer. So I'm looking for some slim floorstanders with decent bass. WayneJ's Eros II was one of my original choices. However, the new Exodus Kit 261 appears to be capable of impressive low end. It is pushing the envelope price-wise (about $700) but probably do-able. Anyone have experience with these? Or are there some other candidates? The Dayton 8's are nice and cheap but unacceptably large.
