DoubleATheater, initially I thought that way first. But
1) HipHop is not a genre you play at "listening levels"
. At least I don't. The bass is pounding.
2) Starting with a big, overbuilt, beast as the A7 350, I'm taking into account that michwill36 will continue to roam the avs forums subwoofer section an eventually think about getting another identical one to "smooth out the room response". So the budget for his 1st sub is $1000. Later this year, or the next one, he doesn't know it yet, but he will allocate additional funds for a second sub. (I've been here for a while. michwill36...we all eventually do get a 2nd sub or upgrade or try something new
Of course, that's humble my opinion. I haven't heard the A7 350, but it looks mamath and impressive and built to take a pounding. Should be killer for movies as well. michwill26 can do as he pleases.
mich gots the space. Start big first. The whole house should tremble.
