Yesterday i bought (3) JVC HX-GD8 Stereo Systems. Thats 1,650 watts of power. And i have all that in only a 8x8 and im only 2-3 feet away from all (6) of the 8 inch subwoofers. It hits very hard.

Speaker wise I know it sounds lame (BOSE) but it does sound pretty sweet considering. I would like to upgrade to ALL KEFF Q series, I just don't have the cash right now. But for what I paid for the Bose (1/4 retail price) it'l do for now!
Just thought i'd add, this is all in a 11 x 25 room. Keep in mind with a possible 1640 watts + 100w powered sub, I'm only putting in 840 which is still not true because no receiver (maybe HK) produces max power maybe only 60-75%. With that being said, I rarely have my vol past 3/4 and if I do it aint for long!
