Mid woofer problems


I have a pair of B and W CM1's, or I had a pair until the midwoofer blew on one. I listen through a Rotel 1552 amp at most at half volume usually less. I live in an apartment
so I cant play it very loud. When I brought it in to be fixed, I was told that I cant use it to listen to movies on my DVD because I didnt have a subwoofer. Is this true? The sound of the speaker through a DVD is much less volume then the CD player or the turntable so there I have to turn it past 1/2 to hear. Naturally its not THX,
Signed no music

Can't listen to it?!?!? May not sound as good as if you had a sub but can't listen to it -- sounds like a bad sales pitch to sell you a sub.
Maybe the dealer thinks your turning it up to loud to hear the low frequency sound effects the little speaker can't produce.It appears to be -3db@55hz,-6@45hz.There is a lot of sound effects,music or other below the low limits of the speaker.Look at the woofer to see if it is moving in and out without putting out sound on movies.If it is,you may be over driving it.Ask them about putting a fuse inline to blow it instead of the woofer.B&W link>>[http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/display.aspx?infid=1065&terid=1072]
