If you feed the 1.7s enough power you don't need a sub.

I've had great results with the Vandersteen 2W sub with my 1.6 Maggies in a fairly small room with a low drop ceiling sitting near field. What it does mainly is opens everything up so that the soundstage is huge in a wrap around way and the upper end extension just goes through the roof in a way that's quite seductive. The Vandersteen seems to me to be fast enough to keep up with the speed of the Maggie and the way it implemented in the system gives your amp relief in it's job of handling the lows. My amp is the ARC 150.2 @150wpc into 8 and 300wpc into 4 Just a thought. Good luck!
