Just bought the Polk RM85s (killer deal at BB $199) and now thinking about a sub.

I'm not still working on the receiver, probably going to be the Denon 1610 (or the Pioneer 919 chime in here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1167233)

I have an old set of JBLs that I'm replacing, which does have a sub (I think it's SUB125).

Can/Should I just use that, or am I going to regret not getting something better matched?

Thanks

I would use it if possible..if you like the sound, your done, if not there are always better subs out there..

Subs really don't have to match the speakers...I have large polks all around compared to those, and Epik and a MFW for subs..

I am no longer able to watch a movie. I am monitoring a video display with regards to chroma, brightness, contrast and correct pulldown.
