I run 4 adx Maximus shakers which shake hard and then I see myself having to put the sub level down on certain movies to prevent noise from the sub coming from the driver itself or from the port so to me just not good enough
The beginning scene of EOT is one of the most demanding scenes you can put a subwoofer through. Expecting a $399 sub to play that scene with authority is unrealistic. Ya gotta go up in weight class, plain and simple. I would say the $800 price range is the minimum for the performance you seek.
My humble system:
Sony X900e; Sony UBP-X800; Pioneer Elite BDP-62FD universal blu-ray player; Denon 4300H AVR, Dual PSA S1801's; Monitor Audio Silver RX-6 mains, RX center, and RX surrounds; one pair NHT mini Atmos speakers; Home-built HTPC (Xeon E1230, 16gb RAM, Crucial M500 480gb SSD, GeForce 980Ti, Corsair CX600, CoolerMaster mini-ITX case)
