My favorite picture here is of the delivery. As for your 2 channel use of the SB16, I do agree that it could be overkill. I have stereo SB3000's anchoring a pair of NHT 2.5I's. I do have to back the SB's down a bit. But what I did find sir is that my soundstage absolutely exploded with better information. I was always okay with one sub ( I've had Veloydne F1500R and ULD 15), but when pairing them...……. Well let's just say I had to eat my opinion about one being sufficient.
