I have been looking for speakers to pair with a Yamaha RX- A700 receiver in a room that is around 13x20 with 8 foot ceilings. After much research, I decided to purchase a 5 pack of RC Micros - hard to pass up for the 150 currently on sale at Newegg. It looks like a may be moving in a year or so - and plan on upgrading with some larger energy speakers for the fronts when i do and using the micros to expand from 5.1 to 7.1 (or use them as height/ rears in 5.1). So finally to my question - I know the Micros bottom out at 150 Hz, and need to purchase a sub to fill out my current set-up to 5.1. Any suggestions? I don't want to break the bank - I looked at BIC f12 but saw that it may have a hard time above 100-120 hz, I don't mind spending more but would like something that would work well now and move into a larger room well later. I saw some posts on the subject, but they are all dated a bit... I also have an old pair of JBL g300's that i could add to the mix if needed to help with the midbase (if they would in fact help). I appreciate the help, you guys have already taught me more about HT than you can imagine.
