I have an Onkyo HTR-500 receiver and need some speakers to compliment them. I was interested in getting the Fluance AV-HTB specifically because 1) I will be listening to music 80% of the time and 2) The fronts give great bass without a sub (I particularly don't want a sub due to space constraints and my unwillingness to disturb the neighbors). However, when listening to a DVD, I don't want to completely loose the bass. With a 5.0 setup, is the Bass re-routed to the front speakers, or is the LFE channel completely lost? Do DTS/DD5.1 DVDs send "all" the bass to the LFE channel? On a second note, this setup will be used in a small room (~100sqft). Most of the time music and movies will be played at low volumes. Is the audio quality with floor speakers good at low volumes, or would satellites be better? I was also looking into other setups: JBL NSP1II 5-Piece - after you add a sub it becomes more expensive than the Flaunce, and the sub is considerably large. Acoustic Research HC6 - seems impossible to find. A bit more expensive since Best Buy does not carry them anymore. I like the aesthetics of this setup a bit more than the JBLs and at $350 they'd cost about the same as the NSP1 IIs and a sub. As you can see the Fluance's are very attractive as they likely not only sound better than the others (especially for music [2 towers]), but without the sub (which I can live without) are much cheaper.
