It would probably cost you more to do the Infinity set with 5.0 speakers and then buy sub and receiver. Just thought I'd throw that out there as a new alternative :)

Nope. Shipping is not always free. I think it usually runs you ~$750 shipped (not sure).

In your case, the Plus is probably a good choice. Same driver and amp as the EX in a bit smaller...

And SVS PB-1000 would be a good step up from the NXG. :)
