chronic9: Congratulations on your EMP Tek's. Their subwoofer with the red burl finish is beautiful and it will match your speakers, and appears to be a quality subwoofer. However, it only goes down to 35 Hz, which is fine for most music, but marginal for LFE effects. Depending upon the size of your room and what subwoofer size is acceptable to you, I agree with Batman that the PB-1000 would be a better choice, as would the Reaction Audio BPS-212. Great subs, but out of your price range at $500 and won't have the great looks. Speaking of price range, you stated $200, but wanted to know about the $328 Emp Tek? Does not compute.
