It sounds like each poster has a personal mantra that they cannot step out of.
That's funny. I get that same feeling from you.

Be well and if you can tell me who has the best pizza in town I'd be appreciative to you also.
Ummm, no, no, YOU are the rude one as you have been constant about your pizza and have refused to even consider all the other pizza's in town. Very rude for an out of towner to alienate the locals, just because that out of towner is agenda driven. Now sir, THAT is rude and precisely what you have done thruout this thread.
Now, to this thread and to answer your quite specific topic starting question as to which sub from the PSB link you provided, then your 2nd very specific question as to which sub from the Dali link you provided. The answer is NONE. And you want to know why? Because they are ALL inferior subs, both in price and sound quality when compared to what has been suggested over and over again already, internet direct subwoofer companies.
Since money appears to be no concern, and sound quality is for you,
Money is not too important performance is,
then why are you so adamant on saying everyone who has tried to help you is being rude?
You say there are many reasons that lead you to that PSB link, well it is obvious it wasn't due to research, or those subs would never have been on your radar. So if you are so hellbent on throwing away perfectly good money on an inferior product, why don't you try to explain HOW & WHY you reached the conclusion that your choice is only doable by going the PSB/Dali route? Answer that and you might get more responces geared toward teaching you the proper etiquette of subwoofers. The first thing learned you is that a subwoofer does not, and cannot, be 'matched' to main speakers, regardless of the brand or price.
And here is lesson #2...The only "matching" a subwoofer needs, is with another subwoofer, in which case, just as with the front speakers, they need to be the same for the best possible sound. And yes, this applies even if level matching is attempted.
Now please, you asked for help with very little info on the problem, please relax and accept the help being offered. You do not have to accept that help, but broaden your horizons and least look into other/better options available to you. Otherwise you are the one being "rude".
