I may order from amazon for a free trial.

Do you know if the feet of the ls50w should be taken off when using the stands?

You don't need to remove the feet, they fit perfectly, as if the stands were created for LS50 exclusively

Hi guys. I was wandering if I would benefit from adding external amp for my system. I have Yamaha 3050 running my Q900, Q600c, Q300, Q100 and Q800ds setup. I was thinking to add a small amp like Emotiva A500 to run the surrounds and take the load off the receiver. I use the system for movies and dot turn it up too much. My room is 20x30x10ft.

You are better off getting a good subwoofer and putting all your speaker crossovers at 80 hz if you want to take some load off your amp

I have two SVS SB2000 that I'm happy with and my crossovers are set at 80hz.

Why do you feel you need a separate amp? Are you getting distortion or chuffing at certain levels?
You could try setting the crossover for the 300's to 90hz and 100-110hz for the 100's and 800's. This would help both the speakers and the amp considering you have very capable subs. FWIW, I have my Q100's set at 90hz and 200c at 100hz. Never had any chuffing and sound best that way. Don't be afraid to experiment.

Kef Q100 FL/FR, Kef Q200c center, JBL Loft 40 surrounds , JBL SP 150 & Bic F12 subs, Denon AVR710Ws, , Panasonic 50" Plasma, Samsung cable box, Xbox One, Toshiba laptop.
Bedroom: JBL Loft 50 FL/FR , Loft 20 center, JBLSP 150 sub, Pioneer VSX-830K, PS3, 32" Insigna LED.
