Have you thought or looked at Magnepan (MC-1'S or MMG-W)?
...scroll down to the speaker section on Emotiva's page and look at the ERM-6.3's shown in the picture. Emotiva is their own manufacture, and direct distributor to the end customer, which is how you can save. These are $499 each, and will likely offer far more for you money in a dynamic HT speaker than you can otherwise get.
I think you're looking at something like dual 6.5" woofers, dual 4 1/4" midranges and a 1" tweeter. If they sound anything like their small reviewed pairs, you should be doing very well here!
Having dual woofers and midranges should offer superior dynamics, better power handling, better distortion cancelation, and a more solid overall image and dynamic from your transducer, all things equal.
Just a thought...
Check the Axiom line from Canada . Not good for music but pretty nice for HT . They used to have a 30 day buy and try . If you don't like them send them back for a full refund . You can also buy blems and used from their site .
The blems are pretty tough to see any blemish at all , a good bargain . Clean and clear with good bass . With music the highs are too much though . Designed with tube amplifiers .
I still have the surrounds (dipole) and center . Looking for different fronts as I like to watch music videos at times .
Good luck .
