    I would say either rears or new mains and move the titans to the rear. I think you could get mini-monitors or monitor 3s for under $400.

    I would enlarge the TV, sell the old one and at least move up to 36".

    Michael, I think the rears would be best upgrade like what stephen said. You might want to get a 20oz bag of poly-fil for your sub, it really helps out.. heres a LINK to another post that has some more links about this mod, if u haven't already found out about it. Don't worry the wm40 and 500 are just about the same, I used this on my wm500.
