I am slowly piecing together a modest home theater. Currently I have Polk Monitor 30s for fronts along with a Polk CS1 for center powered from an Onkyo RC-260 receiver. What would be a better next step, Polk Monitor 60s for fronts and move the 30s to rears or add a sub such as the Bic F12? Primary use is movies and gaming. Thanks in advance!

If you don't already have a sub, then it's a no brainer. Get the sub. It's makes a world of a difference.

Tower speakers can never reproduce the lower frequencies that a subwoofer can.

Get a good subwoofer.

So I ordered my front speakers yesterday... j/k, just wanted to be sure. Subwoofer was where I was planning on next, after replacing bald tires and paying Dr. bills and lunch money for the kids and.......

Thanks for the input!
