Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to reply, maybe some more will as well, and several have replied directly to me.
The larger panel speakers might do the job, and I love the big Maggie 20.1, but they just suck most amps dry. I have demo’ed them with a quite large high end amp, and they still needed more, and the store even had a sub on the system, and yes of coarse I know the little Bryston will not do the job, wouldn’t even try.
Subs are a nice way to go, but by the time you buy one or two good subs, and maybe a quality sub crossover your maybe back into the range of a very good in-closed speaker. That was the direction I was maybe thinking of going.
Always lots of trade off’s, and there are always good and bad with any type of technology.
I live in the Charlotte NC area, and we are in an audio waste land. No decent stores in this area. So selecting a new speaker will me some travel for me to listen to any possible purchase, but that’s nothing new to me.
Keep the thoughts coming in. I appreciate them.
