I basically narrowed it down to this

Rotel RA-01
Energy C-1 or C-3

Should I get the Energy S8.2 sub or Klipsch RW-8 sub? They are in different stores so its hard to tell what will go better.

I will use for music (everything except rap)

I heard good things about the Energy S8.2- The Klipsch is good, too. I have a Def Tech PS80 and it sounded better than both Engery and Klipsch. If you haven't read any reviews, make sure you do that- they may not have too many for those subs on this site, but just through them in a search engine and go from there. I don't think you'll make a bad choice with the Energy- remember not to pay retail price though. The will also fit well with your fronts if you go with the C-1s or C-3s. Eventhough the brands really don't need to match (especially with a sub since they all provide similar lows).

Also, if you can, buy both, bring them home and give them a test drive in your environment. I'm sure the store has at least a 30 return policy- if not, shop elsewhere.

Good luck!
