I am doing AV for a new dance studio thats being built. They do all types of dance in there. There are three studios, two are about 1300sqft and one is 2200sqft. I believe i am going to need some form of sub so the dancers can feel the music. The ceilings are open and are about 12-13 feet high. I cant figure out how much wattage or what speakers are going to be right for the space. Any help would be more then awesome! Thanks
Edit: needs to be in the air(other then an sub)

You need to look into pro audio, this forum is mainly concerned about home audio. I would look into QSC's live sound equipment, Behringer live sound, JBL pro, Mackie, etc. Take a trip down to your pro-audio store to see what they have. Many of the guys in the DIY forum also tend to be more knowledgeable about pro audio installation.
Agreed. A pro audio setup seem to be a best fit for this use.

And dont go for 2 subs because for your situation its not important. Get the largest sub you can afford thats ported because you need output and LFE more than anything else since you talked about "feeling" the music etc. 1x 15 incher will do fine over 2x 12 inchers.
