Two Seaton sound HP Submersives would really be nice in a room that size.

That is potentially a really large space to fill, maybe 7000-9000 cubic feet depending on the average ceiling height.

Orbit Shifter? May want big ported subs with a room that size.

3 - JTR 228's LCR (game room)
2 - DIY Sound Group V-8 Coaxials (game room)
4 - PSA Triax's (game room)
2 - SVS SB13+'s (living room)
1 - SVS SB12-NSD (bedroom)

That's a large room.. You need a lot of subs to fill that room. With that kind of budget, DIY IMO is the only way. You probably can DIY a 18x8 sub system with 4k$. Other DIY'ers will chime in on this one.

30 feet is a REALLY bad length dimension. Room gain won't start for you until about 18Hz. With an 18' ceiling, you have tremendous volume to fill ... ~8,000 cu. ft. if you take an average between a 9 and 18' ceiling. Pb-13 Ultras are about right, though I think you may end up needing at least four of them. I would figure 1 per 2000 cu. ft. for the best visceral effect, though duals should make a nice presentation as well. Absolutely vented because, and I mean Mark no disrespect in regards to the super Submersive, your space will contribute absolutely nothing with a 30' length. It will all have to come from the subs themselves and that just screams vented in my opinion. Actually, DIY would offer much more potent possibilities as far as tuning and output....$4 - 8k is a lot to spend on subwoofers. If your room dimensions are in fact real then you will need some serious muscle in there.

With the above budget, I'd be looking at four FV15HPs as one or two subs will not fill this room and deal with peaks and nulls in the process.

Disclosure: We have two FV15HPs for a 3300^3 room, openings to adjacent spaces and for room smoothing purposes, I see a third FV15HP in our life. I won't be buying to make it loud as the two subwoofer system, easily achieves reference level play. I'm looking for a smooth response close to single digit, reference level playback.

With your budget, to start, one can buy two FV15HPs, get them dialed in using REW as your guide and as necessary, add to the mix, one subwoofer at a time.

Dual JTR Captivators or a JTR Orbit Shifter LF or LFU.. You need ported or horned subs with that size room and your budget. Pressurizing that room with sealed subs is going to cost a lot. I love the Submersives, but I don't think they're the best option for this situation.

2 of these GJALLARHORN. They would be within your price range and offer extreme extension.
