Your going to get me going on the whole bass management thing for music which I feel is a bit of a red herring. If it were just music I wouldn't have a sub.
My speaker collection does double duty as both music and a HT setup. As a matter of fact on top of the 5 Model 1's (I'm including the center here), I have a pair of Axiom QS4 dipoles about midway down the walls and a pair of Monitor Audio Bronze Bookshelves behind me on a shelf for effects.
For music I use the Totems only. For TV and Film, everything is engaged.
I use an NHT SUB II that has 2 10" drivers and a 500w Sunfire amp. This unit would definitely bother your neighbours and keeps me constantly checking the wall mounts of my other speakers and works great with the Totems. I just replaced a Paradigm PDR 8 which is a great little sub but softclipps on films like "The Haunting" and other film with DEEP Bass.
I live in a condo but fortuneatley my HT is on 2 outside walls and is over the Party room. The guy upstairs is either deaf or no one lives there.
Everything I've read about the Dreamcatcher has been very positive but you have to make up your own mind. I think the whole set retails for about the price of a pair of Model 1's.

Physically larger subs could have the ability to have higher output levels; but, that is not necessarily so. For example, there are 12" and 15" subs producing higher output than some 18" subs. The output potential of a sub is a function of several factors: driver size and design, amplification, enclosure size, acoustic suspension vs infinite baffle, etc. As an example, look at the output specifications for the Sunfire (also note the wattage).
What you will find in many smaller subs is a high Q....ie, lots of energy over a small frequency range.

i have to agree with kipjones, the KLIPSCH RC7 is a tremendous center speaker and does exactly what the manufacture says it will do. kudos for the RC7.
