Yeah maybe they meant March 2016... both of your subs now are discontinued

I read EMPtek are great speakers (especially for the price), but really need to be paired with a good sub. I live in an apartment, so I can't have window rattling bass in any event. Will a JBL 550P sub provide enough oomph to balance out the sound if you go with R5bis as fronts? Any thoughts?

I haven't heard that much about the JBL 550P, but I suspect it has the capability of getting down to around 35 Hz. The price I saw on Amazon tells me it's not worth close to THAT price, so if you can find a deal for around $250 it might be all you need in your apartment. But if you are willing to spend around $500, then I'd look at the SVS PB-1000*: http://www.svsound.com/subwoofers/ported-box/pb-1000

Others to consider are:

*But in order to recommend any sub properly, we would need to know the total cubic footage (the listening room and any rooms open to the listening room).

Music area: Magnepan 3.6, McIntosh MC2205 & C48, SVS SB13-Ultra, Oppo BDP 95 and assorted equipment.
Movie area: EMP Tek R5Bi, PSA XS30, Denon X2000, Oppo BDP 83.

The cherry version is $290 on Amazon. It's not going to have a lot of output, but for an apartment it might work well.

Craigslist is also an option, I found a like new HSU STF2 for $200 and it pairs very nicely with the towers.

I may be a coward, but I feel like at this point in its lifespan, craigslist is just a more efficient way of finding a way to get yourself jacked/murdered, at least in NYC

Room is 14 x 30 (with wood floors), but any sub that is going to fill that room to the satisfaction of the people on this forum is likely to get me forcibly evicted, I suspect

Thanks for the heads up. When I typed in the model number that sent me to Amazon, I saw the price at over $500. Now I see that it is under $300, which makes it a better value.

You can never have too much sub and no one says you cannot turn the gain down! I think people are just trying to make sure you don't buy an underpowered dude...like my Martin Logan Dynamo 300. A "dynamo" it is not...

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
