hello everyone.i have a 2,1 system 2x8330 and 7350sub.i use this only for music so my question is if its good idea to buy 2 more speakers.the reason is that i want more ''volume'' if you know what i mean.i know that the best way is 2 speakers-stereo.So i would like to know if i could adjust 4 speakers to play like 2 speakers because i wouldnt like surround system for listening.i mean the both right speakers to have the same settings and both left also the same.tell me your opinion.thank you

What's the listening distance for the 8330s and the room dimensions? These 2 parameters should lead you to the solution. 

If you hear in near-field, the 8330 are fine. Then, if the volume of the room is two high you can get one, two or three more 7350s. See the specifications of these speakers and how much sound pressure they can create at Genelec's site. 

Adding 2 more speakers will not hep you.
