I go both ways, errrrr...... wait that didn't sound right, I will sometimes use the M80s with a sub and sometimes without just for that audio purist part in me.

I donít use a sub for stereo but that's mainly because I donít have much in 2.0 that needs a sub when using the M80s. OTOH I do use the sub for multi-channel music.

Is that the sound of the Rap or is it Dean banging his head on the wall from listening to it?

That's interesting that most of you run the M80s with a sub. Wouldn't that beat the purpose of having the 80s instead of the 60s since the extra bass given by the 80s will be useless in that case?

No, it just helps even out the room response.

Itís the sound of Dean banging the head of the person playing it into the wall, ground, car door. . . .

Donít mind the thump. I like most EBM and itís derivatives especially GOA Trance and Psychedelic Trance which often have beats up to 160/minute itís the predominance of the lyrics and the associated attitude of cRap that I donít appreciate.

IMO it sort of defeats the purpose of getting tower speakers in the first place for most people. I listen to lots and lots of Trance with very rapid bass beats. I find the bass is much clearer at 160BPM when played from just the M80s and not the M80s + sub. Could just be a byproduct of not being able to exactly match the distance delays, crossover issues, room resonance being excited by the lower bass of the sub or a combination of those and other things.

For the music where I kick the sub in there isnít a rapid beat to deal with so I sounds fine.

bdpf, A dazzling display of logic....well done!

Randy, I have to question the use of the term "upgrading" when referring to buying M80's over M60s...They're so similar, it's really more of a preference issue.

bdpf, After you get the M60s....let us know how you like them, too. ;\)
