Subwoofer for Satellite System?

I am putting together a 5.1 system for my living room (13.5x18.5x8) and am planning on using 5 Cambridge Audio Minx 22 speakers. I was originally planning on getting the matching Cambridge Audio X301 subwoofer but I'm told it's not that great. Can anyone suggest a better alternative? I've got about $500 to spend on the sub. I'm using a Denon AVR-X2200 if it matters. Thanks!

It's not that the X301 is bad, it's actually a pretty good sub for what it's designed for, however it's just priced way too around $250 too high.

The above subs are good choices, I'll add the Hsu VTF-2 MK4 which is currently on sale for $509.
