The problem with auditioning is that the other speakers in the system may have fuller/less bass than my system and of course room accustics will be totally different.
Maybe I did not explain myself fully. My suggestion was that you find a dealer that will allow you to take a Sunfire subwoofer home with you for a trial period. This way, you can set it up with your speakers, in your room, with your acoustics. Maybe you can even have his help. Good dealers who are looking to form meaningful customer relationships and future business, do this kind of thing.
