If you pass on the sub, I would go with a tower to give you more bass. The M80 has great extension for music. On many tracks I cannot tell much or any difference between just the M80 and M80+ sub.

I also live in an apartment, but its a conctrete box so it keeps all that bass in. I can play my EP350 at reference without any complaints. I watched Serenity at 1:00am at close to reference (the windows were rattling) and nobody complained.

P.S. If you really want a bass hump on the M22 you can just turn up the bass tone control on your receiver. You will still get better extension than the M3.

I think the towers are the best bet for me. I can easily keep them at a volume where i dont shake the place. Ive just had too hard of a time doing that with a sub in the past. Are those surrounds a good choice i never had bi or quadpolar ones before.

DJ, before I got my EP500 I frequently used my M22s without my sub(a much more modest unit). For nearly all music(definitely not including pipe organ)they were excellent and had usable response down to about 40Hz with room gain. As has already been mentioned, applying a little bass boost on the tone control simulates to a considerable extent the upper bass hump(which I don't care for)that some small speakers employ to give an impression of greater overall bass.

I think im just gonna get a pair of m22s and avp100 to start. I can always add a sub later if i need more bass. Im really tempted to ge real wood speakers instead of vinyl. Has anyone here gotten them i was kind of curious if paying more defeats the point of buying axioms. I just cant help looking at the rosewoods and wanting them though.
