I don't like subwoofers at all. I'm not crazy about bass either. I prefer a very moderate amount of bass.
I used to say the same thing, until I bought an EP350. There's a huge difference. I didn't really care for it at first, but now it's hard to get by without it. If you live in an apartment, or share with other non-bass lovers, then I would understand also.
Edit: I turn the Subwoofer off when I crank it up really loud, like when I'm in another room on a treadmill, otherwise about all I can hear in the other room is bass.
