If you want to avoid a sub, you want to spend more on floorstanding speakers instead of bookshelves.
I have some huge, 40+ pound floorstanding speakers in my main room, they still greatly benefit from a sub, especially for movie content.

If I could do it all over again, I'd buy better bookshelf speakers and two subs. This is what I learned from my garage system as the bookshelf speakers with 5.25 inch woofers generally blend well with a 12 inch sub in-room.

So my suggestion: for the price of the floorstanding speakers anyone is looking at, spend it on bookshelf speakers, speaker stands, and a sub instead.
Had these before and if I didn't go the wireless route, I'd buy a few pairs right now. I chose the infinity 162's because the center channel RC263 had rave reviews. I JUST hooked it up and love it so far as I didn't previously have the space to install it as is in my home because it's a beast

Can anyone comment on how these perform on the bass department? Rated @45 hz, do they perform well on the low end? Trying to avoid a sub in a 5.1 system.

I just posted in the other thread for these speakers. Here is what I posted :

I have the 590 for the front stage in my media room. 530 for the side surrounds. I am very pleased by the sound quality these speakers produce. One thing I note is sound imaging is really good. I am able to distinctly sense where the instruments and vocals are placed within a sound mix. For some context, I also own JBL LSR 305 for my desk top and again imaging is top notch. However I greatly prefer the 590s and 530s. For a brief period I ran the 530s as my mains and was super impressed except for the bass. I do have dual PSA XS30 subwoofers (dual opposed 15" woofers in a sealed enclosure) doing the bass duties and I crossed them at 80hz.

Yes! I am debating between these and the 6.5 inch woofered, similar priced Polk S20 or Elac B6.2 The Polks can go down to 39Hz apparently!
