I have been running without a subwoofer for more than a year now, simply because I don't really care for heavy bass. I figure my front speakers will give me all the bass I need, but recently I have started to re-consider this approach. It occurred to me that if I let the front and surround speakers handle primarily midrange and highs, the quality of sound from these speakers might improve since I would not burden them with the deep bass signals. Am I correct in my new way of thinking ? For reference, my front speakers are Wharfedale Emerald 97's (moderate size towers with two woofers at only 6" diameter). My center channel is also a Wharfedale Emerald, and my surrounds are Wharfedale Diamond Anniversary with a single 5" woofer.
