7050b with 8040a ?

Hi, I was wondering if it were possible and ok quality wise to use the 7050b with a pair of 8040a... I use it mostly for music listening. I know that the recommendation is 7060b but it is unfortunately out of my budget at this time. :(

Unfortunately you can't use a 7050B with 8040A. The 7050B doesn't have highpass filters for speakers so you have to use either 8020B or 8030A with it, which have a built-in high pass filter in them (2nd dip ON).

If the 7060B is out of the budget, 5050A is our least expensive sub having high pass filters for speakers (although only for three channels, not six like in the 7060B and above).
