Due to the limited maximum output, a matching sub will likely have
plenty of headroom, so for sealed box a plate amplifier with variable
low boost is probably the best way to proceed.

FWIW even crossed over at 300Hz, (short lived massive stereo boxes
to go with them), the low sensitivity and saturation characteristics of
the c/o components limited output to modest levels.

For small speakers unusually as standard they need using well away
walls, some manipulation of the bass end may allow closer spacing.

I still use LS3/5a in one room. They sound so good on voice.

In have used them with an active sub woofer, a wharfedale unit, and that sounds fine. I have also built passsive base units for them with a 2nd order filter at 160 hz and that also sounds fine. These use wharfedale 10" base units in sealed cabinets that fit below the LS3/5A units.

As long as you do not play too loud they sound great on voice and classical music.

i should have also added that the LS3/5a sounds smooth and is easy to listen to; but does not provide much detail.
