    what i/c's are you using.

    I have found VDH to be a flat to be honest if you have i/c's to match your speaker cable.

    Chord or maybe Nordost would be a good alternative.
    I'm sure a dealer somewhere would have dem lengths somewhere.

    I used to have a 10/10P/9CD when they first came out several years ago and used Nordost Blue Heaven throughout (inc speaker cable) and it was anything but soft, very dynamic sounding with being too hard on your ears over time.

    Hope this helps.

    The AEs aren't the best speakers for bottom end, I used to run a pair as rears, and was never that happy with them. You could try stuffing the ports with foam or similar, that might tighten up the response of that little bass driver.

    I added 3 Alpha amps (10 Int amp section, 10P/3, 9P) to my AVR300 and it improved the bass response of my system. It's now tighter, faster, and more detailed. Offhand, I would say your problem lies elsewhere.
