A subwoofer does a lot of things for a music system (you already know what a sub can do for movie LFE). It can also breathe new life into your current speakers. The reason is that a subwoofer will take over the demanding duties (both on speakers and amplifiers) from 80 Hz on down. Your speakers may become more alive and with less distortion. You'll get more weight and impact in those lower registers for strings and percussion instruments. If you don't believe me, go to a local store and see if you can try out a good sub in your home for a few days. Then, if you still aren't interested, no harm no foul.
