I am going to upgrade 2.1 office system to a pair of Polk LSiM703 speakers and I am looking for a subwoofer to pair with them. my budget is $700 my office is pretty small 10' x 15' with an 8' ceiling.
Some of what I have been looking at

HSU
VTF-2 MK4
VTF-3 MK4
Outlaw
LFM-1 Plus
LFM-1 EX
PSA
XS15
XV15


do you think one will pair better then the others or be better for music? Is there another that I should be looking at?

I would go for a VTF3, it has a lot of features that can integrate it with your room, very nice especially if you don't have a room correction EQ.

agreed! A xs15 would put the hammer down in that size room and offer some deep extension most likely!

Two others left off of your list in your price range
SVS PB12
SVS SB12 for music


PSA XS15 is very popular at the moment for good reason its hard to beat the performance and price. Only con about it is it is large and only comes in one finish, if that is a non issue its almost a no brainier PSA is the current KING OF THE HILL.

the pb12 is bigger than a xs15...

pb12nsd- 17x21x25 with grill (w,h,d)

xs15- 17x19.5x18

xv15- 17x23x22

as you can see PSA subs are not that larger for using 15" drivers. the pb12 is huge for a 12" sub.
