I would go with the 80's without the Sub.

Hope this helps
Absolutely.

Since I don't have much room treatment, I went for the 80s without the sub and the sound here in my space is so much better than the sub-setups I've experienced in some fellow producers' space. One of these guys has a HS50 and he's wondering if he gets a sub or replace those for the 80s....my advice was to replace, since he has no room treatment.

I basically produce dance-floor rhythms and the 80s felt like a glove here. In fact, in the last months I've been even using its room control feature lately (-2db lo-shelf @ 100Hz) cause my room has some exaggerated bass on one side. A sub here would make a REAL mess.

Overall, like 100 people already said: no doubts the 80s are the best buy for the price.
