Since you might be interested in duals, one option to consider is dual ChaseHT SS-18.1 subwoofers
(two 18" passive sealed subs, powered by a Dayton SA1000 amp that puts out 2 x 475W). I run them with my Studio set-up (60v4s, CC-690v5 and 20v4s) in my ~15' x 30' x 7.5' = ~3,375 cu.ft. room (click on my signature, below). They look good, play loud, hit hard and sound great.
I would love to have the variety to choose from just like you guys have in the US, but all we have locally is Velodyne, Polk Audio, and Yamaha. All except to Velodyne DD are average subs. Dual subs like what you have is mouth watering I would love to have such a setup. How a dual PB-13 Plus would sound if money and shipping is not an issue?
Your setup looks amazing, the two subs are massive compared to already tall Studio 100's.

I didn't think I would even consider another sub but it looks like another Ultra will be sitting beside my left speaker soon.
I am considering SVS PB-13 Plus for my setup, dual subs will never be wrong especially if you're getting the monster PB-13 Plus .. The thing with it is I have to have it specially made. Electricity will have to be 230v and then I will have to ship them with me. I will contact the SVSound see how much they can ship it directly.
I know a lot of guys who can pick the PB if one sub is enough. I might make profit too

My room is about 2,500 cu.ft. filling that room will not be a problem I think, but I am looking for a quality sub. My latest sub was a JBL that I bought with my JBL 890L and that sub was below average and I didn't like it. Now, I don't want to do the same mistakes that I did before buying a sub from the same brand as the speakers thinking they would match perfectly.

I have seen dual HSU 15's with Studio's in Blu-ray.com and heard a youtube video of them working with together, they look great! I don't have a set preference in terms of sealed or ported, I just want a good sub for about $2K. I will be using my Aventage 2000 for my HT.
So no one recommended the Sub 15, because no one have heard that sub or the SVS is much better choice if they were on equal value?
Thanks for the help
