HSU seems to have the best values in the $600 and under range. I am sure Wid will be here to close the deal shortly

You could certainly save money and not suffer any performance with going with another choice in subs.

Wid and all,

I talked to a speaker manufacturer and the guy said you'll need a big sub because the big opening in the back. We may put a thick curtain over it, but I don't think we'll make a door for it... Is there really no hope for good bass unless I buy something big and expensive? What would you do?

Thank you,
Rodney

I don't know what you have as a budget but the Hsu VTF 2.3 is not all that much and would work quite well in your size room.

Hi, all,

Yes, still asking questions.

Is the fact that the QS8s are "quadpolar" bad for a room like mine with an opening on the back wall? A salesman trying to sell me his speakers said "you want the surrounds to be directed at your listening position. Bipolar is not the way to go..."

Thanks,
Rodney

Get the QS's, my room is open at the end and it still sounds great, better in fact than the directionals I had before.

Good thing the Q's are Quadpolar not bipolar...2 drivers firing up and down, and 1 tweeter toward your listening position will give a far more emersive experience than direct radiating. Even if you have 1 tweeter firing into an open room.
