If you like the Totems try some Dynaudios. Dynaudio only sells non current production drivers to OEM manufacturers unless contracted to specifically make something just for a special product. Like the Dyn upgrade package in (I think one of the VW SUV's). Try something like the new excite 12 or 16's or maybe the contour 1.4's. I do own the C1's but they are pricey even used.
Centuries ago I listened to a pair of Linn Sara speakers. I was most impressed with the meaty bass they produced. I have not heard the Mani-2s or the Neats, but they both use the isobaric double woofer design as did the Saras (Linn has a patent).
I had for a pair of Totem 1s, and enjoyed them immensely, a friend has them now. I would certainly consider them- and the well reviewed Neats. Isobaric may be your best solution.
Another thought- how big were the floor standers you just gave up? I have a pair of PMC FB1s (and my wife loves them) and they don't take up any more space than most of the speakers mentioned with stands.
Maybe you should look into one of the tiny Mark and Daniel speakers with the super long-throw woofers?
Omega Super Six Alnico's!!I had these for a couple of months while my Super 8 Alnico XRS were being made. Good highs, great mids, and some very solid bass. I almost kept them for my office system, but decided to send them back to Omega, my office was a little too small for them.
