I picked up a set of Tyler highland H2 that have all scanspeak revelator drivers and beryllium dome tweeters. The speakers are 200 lbs and the room is a little small for them BUT they are not overloading the room. Actually quite the opposite. They have 2 10"woofers but, they are well balanced and not bloated at all. Suprised the heck put of me.

I need to dial them in and adjust the feet but i couldn't wait and wanted to hook them up quick.

    They will be. These things are freaking huge but sound sweet. I have hit them with everything from America to Diana Krall to Santanna and Metallica. So far they have handled it all. I was hitting 85 db at times. Time to try yoshi and see how they dig down lol.

    LOL. I didn’t even notice the sound bar. Better yet, remove the TV, and concentrate on the music.

    The wife actually still wants it there because " it looks stupid without something in its place".

    The lower, wider, rack from VTI might be the solution there:

    The speaker that is on the right between the tv and Tyler is a dual 12"sub. It has a plate amplifier on the back
    I cannot find much info on it. The amp says amplitude made in china on the back but no model number and nothing comes up in a Google search. I took it in as part of a trade around 10 years ago or so. I haven't pulled a woofer to see what brand they are.
