    Satellite Sub Confusion

    Every few years I am fortunate enough to be able to upgrade my audio equipment and invest a little more than previously spent ... This time out I am in search of a good satellite sub combination in the $1k-$1.5k range. I have looked far and wide... Damn the internet !! I have looked so much that I am now totally confused... Unfortunately I do not live any where near a shop where I can demo speakers. I know tastes are highly subjetive but I really have no other option then to base my choice on input from the experience you all offer. I replaced my Denon AVR-2801 w/ a Pioneer VSX-94TXH , and am now looking at replacing my AR/Klipsch speakers w/ a satellite sub combo. The room they will be used in is 12x18 with a cathedral ceiling peaked at 1 side with the TV postioned in a corner flanked by the L/R speakers. I currently am looking at these setups...

    Emotiva (ERM's and ERD's)
    Aperion Intumus 4B

    I have found all of the above packages between $850 and $1400. And, believe it or not, I am open to other suggestion ...

    Should you accept the challange, I would love to hear what you think.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    My current favorite would be the Emotiva (ERM's and ERD's) along with the Outlaw LFM-EX. Total = $1495. (These are 4 ohm rated. I would consult with Emotiva about match with VSX-94TXH) (LFM-1 Plus or LFM-1 Compact alternatives at $1395 and $1245)

    The Emotiva's are subtle satin black finish. The plexiglass inlaid top on the Outlaw sub adds a little pizazz.
