Isn't it *possible* to have room nodes in the 60-80Hz region that might be mitigated by setting a lower crossover when using floorstanding (full-range) speakers?

Good point, Tom. I believe using a lower crossover point with might be beneficial by evening out the base throughout the room, as long as the speakers in question are capable of putting out clean/lower freq's. Kind of defeats the purpose of full range speakers if they are crossed too high, imo.

From what I've been reading elsewhere, the wisdom now (FWIW) is that the extra capability of floor standing towers (bass-wise) is largely wasted in HT applications if capable sub(s) are used. Their argument is that there is not a lot of point of towers if the AVR is filtering bass from them.

Speakers in the size & class of the M22s I think are ideal when combined with sub(s) & generally are a lot cheaper than the floor standers. That's why I went that way for both HT & one of my audio only systems (M2s + EP400s).

Works for me...

Having lived with M22s as the mains in my home theater for a good while now, I have to agree. I had originally planned/hoped to go with M60s but just couldn't work the budget. When it finally dawned on me to change to the M22s, everything fell into place. They fit nicely on stands beside the TV, they produce a wonderful flood of clean sound, they blend perfectly with the VP150, my sub does the heavy lifting, etc., etc.
