I did some research and ran across the following specs for the SS-176E (AEP, UK) speakers:

Woofer: 16 cm (6.3") cone type
Tweeter: 2.5 cm (1") dome type
Enclosure Type: Bass Reflex
Nominal Impedance: 6 ohm
Power Handling: 90 W
Sensitivity: 88 dB (1 W/1 m)
Effective Freq. Range: 35 Hz-20,000 Hz
Dimensions: 216x756x290 mm (w/h/d), 8.5/29.76/11.42 inches (w/h/d)
Mass: 11.9 Kg per speaker

The fact that they have a 6 ohm impedance makes them a better match for the AVD-C70ES that the speakers included in the package that I purchased, because the rated power for the AVD-C70ES is at a 6 ohms.  Due to the dimensions, I suspect that the speakers were normally mounted on stands, right?

Corrected mm to inch conversion for height.

no, these speakers are floorstanders.
high freq vertical dispersion quite wide.
at 3 meters away, the tweeters output coincide with ear level sitting down.

the fact that they are full range (albeit down to 35Hz) allows you to bypass bass management circuitries, leading to noticeably more transparent sound.

the best thing is - top and lower frequency time integration is very smooth - it sound like they both "speak with one voice".
play solo piano tracks and they do that 3D imaging thing very well.

a full 5.1-ch system with 5 of these speakers will create true-to-life, holographic, out-of-the-box experience to die for.

I just measured the height of the drivers in my speakers and determined that it is 32", only a little higher than the position in the SS-176ES.

I hope that I didn't offend you when I asked this before, but you appear to have access to extensive Sony design details.  Are you by any chance a Sony "Marketing Executive"?  Please tell is more about yourself, if you don't mind.

In fact, they have a 6 ohm impedance, making them the AVD - C70ES buy the speakers in my bag, because Tera Account of the AVD - C70ES rated at 6 ohms contains a better match...
