I meant I would show her your system and tell her that's what I REALLY want and I'm saving us money by making the choices I do!

It took me 3 years to buy 3 M22's, I couldn't imagine how long it would take to get "sign-off" for your setup.

(I'm only half joking, I have a wonderful wife \:\) )

Mabye if I listened to pipe organ music. But no I think the sub over exaggerates a little much. I feel it is more smooth and natural without. Specially when you have good speakers, about the lowest note played in a band, the Axioms or if you wish Paradigms can produce it well. Plus as I said I love drums and listening to a kik drum the way it is spose to sound is awesome. The sub , would be over kill on it unless of course it is a sub like Paradigms SUB 2 with 6 10" drivers in a array like the QS8s.

Thanks Ian

And it explains enough that it doesn't matter if it is Axiom, Paradigm, or Martin Logans I am not going to nitice it. Nor did I with the last pair of Axioms

Loc: It's all about the location.
Troy, re using a sub....as well as giving music more low end extension, the sub can also take over some of the lower frequencies that your mains would otherwise be playing so the sub will let the mains concentrate on the mid/upper bass. You can always tinker with the sub settings if you feel the bass is not to your liking(ie too much).

When I first started buying my Axioms, I remember a lot more people listening to 2-channel music as strictly 2 channels, no sub. I was kind of afraid of what people were saying about the subwoofer making the sound too bass-heavy, but I can't say I've run into that in my own setup. Simply calibrating the sub to the same SPL seems to make music sound fine to me.

I used to listen to music with the sub. Then I read posts here and there on 2 ch music and bypassing the sub. Yes, I can use the sub but I find myself always fiddling with it. Changing it to music, then turning up the volumn for movies etc.
Then I realized, then music I listen to well I don't know of any instruments that go below the 30hz. and then M30's they go down that low so, then I thought I can't be missing anything. The sub is gonna produce sounds from 80ish hz to well down to what 30hz. if I read the graph right M80 will produce that at a good volume level.

yeh, I will have to experiment again, just have to figure out if I want two EP-500 or one EP 800 horizontally in the center
