Don't want anybody hurting their finances but I don't want folks throwing good money after bad. Doesn't make sense. But if someone stretches themselves out a month or two and they get something worth having, then in my opinion, they have spent their discretionary monies, wisely.
From reading these forums, it seems more money is wasted on upgrades than buying too much subwoofage. I've read of one person, downgrading their system, and what they posted, didn't meet the smell test so I think they were BS'g. I could be wrong on that point but I've read of one downgrade vs hundreds, if not thousands of upgrades. This point tells me where reality lies.
Once one settles into the better subwoofer, you don't read of someone posting how they wish they had bought a smaller single subwoofer over a pair of much larger subwoofers. Just doesn't happen and there's a reason for that also, In the case of subwoofers, more and bigger, work. Note another comment in my post below:
"Subwoofers are a money pit of happiness. The more one throws down the rat hole labeled subwoofers, the happier the individual becomes."
In the case of subwoofers, money can buy happiness. Subwoofers are one of the few purchases in life that long after they're purchased, continue to bring joy and happiness into the buyer's life. Subwoofers? More is always better. It's nice to read that my sense of humor made you laugh.
I will second that
