Many of the subwoofers in the $500+ range are quite good for both music and HT. In smaller rooms, the Hsu STF-2 (<$400) is considered good for both music and HT.
I had that same sub (PB12). At the time I had 5 subs, two B212, two SUB1500 and the PB12. I only used the PB12 for LFE duty. It did not stand a chance as being good for anything else, compared to the other subs. Certainly not for music.
