We live on an apartment so she has that on her favor because she always replies "but you can't play them loud" or vibrations will disturb the neighbors etc. I need to figure out a way to justify at least a $800 purchase on 2 subs.
On my defense, I've cut all other hobbies since I started on video/audio. So that keeps her calm.
Keeping the better half happy is always important
If you at talking rear surround, and not side ones (also came in very late into this conversation).
I would go direct, for the side surrounds, my suggestion would be still direct and have tried also Bi-Di types, but it is a Preference on my part
For the subs question, 2 subs will always be better than one, very few case 1 is better (none that I know).
I am sure, that you get a better price/shipping value when buying two, instead of one at the time.
Try to sell this idea, save money on the long run
