Its mainly between the M10s and the D1080s.
I expect the 1080s are better than the M10s overall but the M10s have a tad bit more base. Would that be a safe assumption?
Of the 3 which should I choose?
Essentially yes. They can still produce enough bass if equalized properly, but it's not exactly the cleanest bass like that either. It starts getting a little muddy with the lows and mids, because it can't extend that low and still trying to reproduce the mid range.

I would only go for the D1010s if you don't have the space for the D1080s. The M10s if you absolutely need 2.1 system. The D1080s if you don't mind dropping $100-200 on another sub later on.

Alright. Thanks.
So the 1010s are out seeing as I have room for the 1080s.
And im not all that interested in getting another sub down the road. I crave good sound quality, but im not enough of an audiophile to want to configure my own speaker set. For now I am content to buy pre-built and pre-configured speakers. I may mix and match or build from scratch in the future, but for now my budget is somewhat strict and I cant justify spending almost $200 on a 2 channel set of speakers that will just want another $150 later on to feel completed. That will be like a splinter in my brain.

Looks like ill be getting the M10s. Thank you very much!
