The Energy sub is an S8.3 and it is for the rear. I was able to keep a couple of pieces of gear along with my clothes when I lost everything when the economy crashed in 07-08...I guess that is to some degree dedication. I kept my (3) Carver Lightstar 2.0 amps and all my Silver Audio cables and that Energy sub. The sub has never been used so I figured I could put it to use in the back. Hopefully it will mesh well with the Golden Ear speakers and the rest of the system. The SVS is in piano black and is beautiful.
I wish I had the AV8801 already.
