That was similar to my situation also but with smaller mains. The s/812 were just a tad too big got a pair of s/510.

Although I’m not sure how well this all works. 803d3 spec at 19hz -3db. S/510 at 20Hz -6db. Your chain is all analog, you’ll be using the high level input from the amps, regardless how low you tune the rel crossover, there will be lots of low bass overlap. Not sure much this will improve your outfit, would be interesting to hear from others with a similar situation. Rel recommends a s/810 But I’d look at a G1 for your speakers, which you don’t have the space for…

But, as I'm now a retired guy, my "discretionary spend" for audio gear lately has been going to improving the acoustics of my listening space even further (based on John's excellent V/Coustics vid recently, as well). Just ordered some additional GIK panels and 4 ceiling diffractors.
Stephen, I'm thinking about ceiling diffractors also. What ceiling diffractors did you order? GIK? Thanks, Steve.
