    Just started getting my HT up and running and was wondering if I was losing anything by not having a separate sub since my fronts are Interlude IL60's. I am running 5.1 right now with IL36c center and IL10's on the rear. I am trying to fill a large area with sound, your basic great room, open floor plan style house. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions that you might have.

    Thanks,dave-u

    The short answer is yes (in mine and many others opinion, but not everyones). Any decent quality sub will outperform powered towers in bass reproduction. Do a search on powered towers and you'll get many hits where this point has been debated to death.
