And putting it lower than 80 may leave a gap for your surrounds where there is not much output between where your surrounds stop producing low notes and the subwoofers would kick it. Having dual subs would also help some of that problem.
I have been leaning towards SVS as well even though the other companies have been well received. Just seem to be pulled in the SVS direction. I like the pc2000 and intrigued by the pc12 Plus and pc13 ultra. Not sure when I'll have the funds to do 2 subs but probably would be easier with the pc2000. I do like the nice compact design of the SB subs. So once I set the global crossover are there any settings on the sub itself that need to be tweaked for this setup or is it good to go. Also thanks for the response that's some good info

The PC2000 looks to be somewhat space saving but still ported. I'm sure the more I spend the more housing shaking bass I can get but I don't really want to spend $2000 on a sub. This is still a living room and not a dedicated home theatre room. Ideally I'd like to keep it at $1000 or under and find the best balance of cost and performance. I don't want to be unimpressed when I turn it on but don't need overkill for the room. Something that really meshes well with the system I have. Not sure if there are some subs that just work better with what I have. The receiver is a Pioneer Elite SC71. I think the speakers sound great and the bass does too. But I know they just can't go as low and perform like a quality dedicated sub and now I'm ready to add one. Any advice would be greatly appreciated because I'm new at this and really just making my decision harder with the more I read. And if you guys think the only way to get the bass I'm after is to get a $2k sub the. I will but I'll have to hold off for now and continue to save for a while before doing so. These are the dimensions of the room to help with the decision. The ceilings are 8ft for every room and while the living room is not that big at all it is open concept to other rooms.
The living room is 14x17. If sitting on the couch facing the tv The dining room/foyer to the right is 12x20. The kitchen behind the seating area is 10x21. There is a bathroom off the kitchen and stairs to the second floor. Thanks again for the help, I'm looking to purchase soon and start watching some movies the way they were meant to be!
I have the exact same speaker setup as you with the additional Atmos A60's (got pair for $125, not $500). My speakers are in an open living room also which is about 12 x 20 with 7ft 5" high ceilings. I'm strongly considering going with a dual pair of SVS PB2000 subs later on this year. I could start with one, but keep reading how dual is best.

I feel the bass is ok with the BP8060's as of right now, but keep wondering how much better it will sound if I end up getting these dual SVS subs later this year. I was considering HSU or Rhythmic but keep seeing good things about the SVS PB2000 subs. Looks like a pair of SVS PB2000 would be $1500 before tax which is about the max I could spend. Besides, anything larger may be too much overkill for my living room.

The PC2000 is very special for the price.....

I would imagine the BP's would put out plenty of bass for a room that size. Are you just looking to go lower?

I also own the 8060ST's

Really like the size and reviews of the PC-2000. Do you think this would be a good fit for the 8060s and provide enough bass. Is it worth the money to jump to the PC12 Plus or Pc13 ultra? Not really sure I can afford either right now but if it's only slightly better especially for someone like me whose not experience and might not hear a difference than the pc2000 may be the one I select. Plus down the road the chances of be getting another pc2000 would be greater than one of those more expensive subs
