Am I leaving out other pertinent information that is needed?\n\nThe room and listening habits (what do you listen to and how loud?) make a big difference. If the speakers are positioned close to reflective surfaces and you listen to music with a lot of percussive sounds in the mid and high frequencies, you don't want or need wide dispersion but you don't want anything that beams if the sound will pass you and reflect off of hard surfaces behind you.\n\nAlso, WRT your room layout and speaker\/listening positions, not all speakers will work in the same spot, so you'll need to experiment once the new ones arrive. I know someone who is using different speakers and he plopped them in the same place as the old ones and when I listened, I heard nothing from the middle area between the speakers and I definitely should have- we were listening to my LPs, so I'm familiar with the mix. Keep an open mind about where the speakers will go and if you're married, ask for the same patience.
