First, for 499.00, that is a lot of sub, a very good deal (assuming you are okay with whatever blemishes the unit has going on).
Some other points:
Yes, if you have a miniDSP or Audyssey SubEQ, you should be okay with them blending together. Just note that once you hit about -15db to -10db below reference and above, your PSA is going to start to show off.
If you are looking for a bargain, the Outlaw LF1 EX occasionally goes on sale for 599.00 and would be a better deal IMHO.
Take a look at data-bass.com and compare your PSA measurements vs the SVS (also noting the databass numbers are for the slightly less capable non-se PSA). Keeping in mind 3db difference in a sub is certainly noticeable, you are really talking about two subwoofers from different classes. That fine, American made piece of audio equipment you own is kind of head and shoulders...
