Next upgrade surround setup

Hello all,

Currently I own an Sonos beam and 2 play one's as surround setup.

I'm thinking of buying my next upgrade, this should normally be the sub, but now that the arc is out I'm not sure what is next to pick…

 I listen quite alot bass heavy music, but I do also watch alot of series/movies, and with he movies I've never really 'missed' some extra bass. 

Is it worth selling my Sonos beam to upgrade to an arc (my TV is dolby atmos compatible) or will the sub in combination of the beam offer me a better experience.
