How big is the total room(s)? The sub will try to fill it all so that's needed to know how big or many to suggest. Likely I would change my suggestion to ported like the HSU VTF-3 MK5 HP...

When you say 9x11 and one 9 wall is open. Do you mean open to another room or just doesn't have anything on the wall?

Any reason you think they need the x4000 over the x1100? The x1100 is $250 refurb with a 3 year warranty (currently). I would think that it would have all the features they would need.

Definitely go bookshelf as your budget allows for some really good options. The tiny satellites like the Take Classics just don't provide a good overall sound and lack entire frequency ranges. In no...

Luckily my Denon never makes it past -25db volume setting so the new Ascends should be ok. Plus I immediately turned it down because the bass was so loud and drawn out (live in a condo and run dual...

Definitely hook them up and use them. Don't let your other thread scare you. WORST thing is you don't use the sub but have good sound from 60hz up. Just don't blast crap like you're in an IMAX...

Everything you want is missing from the 500. No audyssey. No networking period. Spring clips instead of posts for speakers. 5.2 instead of 7.2.

Yeah in a small to medium room that XS15 will hold its own for sure. The SB will disappoint most likely after it. The PB should be a close match I expect. Depends on your room gain I expect.
