It's not about what you want to spend. It's about what you can afford to spend to get what you want. In my opinion, a pair of SVS, PB12-NSD, in a normal size room coupled to a DSPeaker Anti-Mode is a minimum standard.
Yes, I know it's all about the "Benjamins" yet at the same time, it's also all about what one wants, quality bass. In my opinion, the esoteric middle ground is a pair of sound meter balanced SVS, PB12-NSD subs dialed in with a DSPeaker, Anti-Mode and AVR provided EQ'g.
Less than the above and the buyer is shortchanging themselves and more than that, the buyer is, well, they're just buying more of what they want, bigger, deeper, cleaner, louder, soul satisfying bass. The point, I don't know if it's possible to waste one's money on upgrading their bass reproduction system.
