I visit my brothers in Calgary. Next time Im out I can bring my audio go bag and set you up if you want.

If you cant wait you can reach out to Kurt at the Audio Room. He is very good and a whole picture kind of guy. Very acoustics aware. He will do a home setup for a fee.

I have a corner fireplace on the left. If I move them farther apart, the left M80 will ignite.

I've tried them farther apart though. I find the soundstage collapses and I am left with a centre image and sounds localized to the left and right speakers.

I've tried various widths and various distances away from them. My current setup gives me the best presentation in my room. The speakers disappear and instruments appear all over the width and height of the soundstage with well-recorded material.

Ok. I'd rather give my business to you. You can also see what I did with your sound panels.

Good thought. I've tried different crossover settings including no sub. Nothing gives me depth.

BTW, with the EP800v4, I can crossover at 150Hz and it still sounds great! I have it at 80Hz though.

Me, I'd go back to the start.
I'd temporarily remove any diffusion, bass traps, panels, etc., and listen. Especially any behind the speaker, behind your head and first reflection points.
I'd also try removing the rear feet and or double stacking the front feet (assuming factory rubber).
It's all at great risk to your current sound quality but it can be bitter sweet when it's right.

You might want an 800 but I don't know if you need it. I think a 600 is adequate for music and movies. For music alone, a 500 is adequate. Look at Slim. He has a 500 in a 10,000 cu. ft. room for music only and he is very satisfied with it.

I'm currently satisfied with my 3 missmatched Paradigm subs. They've already given me what I call tactical bass. I know the 800 will go ~ twice as deep.
When I think about what they can't do, I want better.
Its my next room I'm thinking of...thats it. Yessss...
I need to start watching for spare coin as I walk down the street lol.

I would happily settle for 2 or more ep400's. Just sayin.
