Charly is right on this one....
What the hell, go for the Def Tech Mythos ST's for $4K/pair, they are a true full range floor stander and will easily fill you room with good quality sound from the 4308, yep, you doubled your initial plan, but you won't regret it, and further on down the road, you can add onto the system to whatever you so desire......
