My M22v3s sound wonderful in my HT but they sit in the open on a pair Velodyne subs for stands. They are quite tall & rear ported, so that may be a problem if you are placing them 'in' a closed type bookshelf system.
I also have a couple of M3v3s (on Axiom 24" stands) that are shorter & perform well without the need for a sub for most music - rear ported again though.
If you can work any of these into your system, I believe that you'll be most happy with Axiom products despite what a few others may say elsewhere.
Good luck in your quest...
