I've a a pair of Polk CSiA6s and a center. No sub. I want to get one but won't be buying a house for at least another year. I really want to get an MFW-15 but I'm concerned about the neighbors.

What do you guys think? Get nothing and wait until we move into a house? Get something smaller and upgrade later? Or can the MFW-15 be turned down low, so as to not create too much bass? Wouldn't that be a waste of $$$ then?

Get the sub, put it on a subdude from Auralex an just be mindful of the levels (or lower the gain). I lived in apartments and condos for years, with dual subs for a large part of it, and never got evicted. What you gain with a good sub is far more than a potential request or two to turn it down.
