So i can try the sub, maybe add 2 channel amp for the fronts (like the Crown that was linked) and set the fronts to small.
I have been running this set up for two months so I did give it time. as i mentioned, i was happy with the speaker set up (w/out a sub also) with the 3808 but i definitely lost something (the punch and depth of sound at lower volumes) in the change.
I'd add the sub first as that will give your AVR more power to drive the other speakers and may be the only upgrade you really need.
