From 40hz and up the PA150 pretty much matches the the VTF15. So if the OP is not concerned with filling 3000 cubic feet with low bass (which cannot be done adequately with $500) he might as well fill in the mid bass and at least get some good punch.

While the PA-150 will certainly have more output, the PB-1000 is roughly equivalent to the PB12-NSD in that same range. So the PB-1000 will do very well and would likely satisfy many people. See Ed Mullen of SVS's explanation:

So subjectively the PB12-NSD will provide greater levels of slam/impact/pressure at higher playback levels in that size room. Whether or not you would actually realize that difference at playback levels which are 'a bit above average' is really the question you need to answer. . . .
