  • awesome review! I heard the TL2's and thought they were pretty nice sounding. Can only imagine these would be even a bit more refined....
  • My opinion, neither set up would have been ideal. Honestly, if you are mostly doing Home theatre, a center and smallish Left and right speakers with a decent mid sized sub will perform better and be far more flexible and able to be adjusted to su…
