Lars-

"Relatively" speaking, adding 20 amp circuits is very cost friendly and running two opposed to one does not double the total cost.

Alternatives to your full box:

Have the electrician use twin breakers, two breakers on one slot. Code Depending.

Install a larger panel. This would take some time and be the most costly option.

Use one sub panel with room to grow just in case.

It's my understanding IF Possible, to keep the breakers for the audio on the leg of the box that has the least noise. IE not the leg with A/C units, furnace, well pump, refrigerators etc. Other more knowledgeable folks please chime in as to my accuracy on this. Also, good grounding is essential and have the electrician tighten up all connections in the box while it's open. The screws holding the wire do loosen up.

Well. I am beginning to sort out some of the logistics.

Now I have a musical question: Do I need a second subwoofer or is one enough? I am not a huge bass guy, but I also don't want to be bass shy. And whichever speakers I end up with, they will be on the smaller side. I currently have one Fathom 112 v2.

I feel that is a question you can defer until you have your new speakers running with your F112v2.

Lars,
Have you considered putting your 802D3s in that system for a couple months and see how it sounds? You may be surprised/lucky, and if you do find that smaller speakers are the way you go, you'll have a reference point. Of course, wrestling those bad boys down and up stairs is not taken up lightly.
