I was watching The Matador last night with my family. It was the first time we all sat down and watched a movie with my setup, and at the beginning when the car exploded everybody jumped because the sound of the explosion had such an impact. I just had a huge smile on my face in the satisfaction that buying this subwoofer was totally worth it. I mean, this thing is about 100x more overkill than anything I need it for, but considering the deal I got (the one that Erik linked to) I'm not complaining with the benefits it gives!

It really is friggin huge though.

This is paired with the 4 x LS-50 (front/surround) and 1 x LC-C50 (center) and the whole package is available for a great price from Futureshop @ $300. [link]. If you were to buy all the speakers separately, it would cost you at least US$500.
