    I recommend a 5-channel amplifier so you can run the components active and the sub off the mono channel. The rear speakers can be powered by MS-8. You'll have the potential for some really suprisingly good sound out of a system like this, especially because of what MS-8 is capable of. Use the money saved by not buying a second amplifier to go toward acoustic treatments. I have experimented with a number of methods and products and I strongly recommend at least following the principles of various treatments as shown on Welcome to Sound Deadener Showdown | Sound Deadener Showdown
