If you can get the RP 8000 to play well with placement Id keep them any day all day it's not just about size or power they are very efficient at 92db as measured here and what you lucky dog have with those beautiful beasts combined with those pb 3000's is something most people won't is HEADROOM it won't take much on your volume knob to get that whole room to SING which means no distortion at any playback level you want\n\nI'd take big badass efficient towers any day they'll have much more power to the crossover point that your subs take over here's how I had them set up in my old place\n\n\n\nThat's a nice looking room, similar to my upstairs. Boy I messed up, Why didn't I think of getting a rack rather than a cabinet. I know when I started my project I didn't have a clear picture of the end result or how far I was gonna go with it. Pretty much why I've made so many upgrades. I have to consider ditching the cabinet. But what to do with the center 504c?\n\n What's in your rack and why do you have 3 8000's?
