You and 100,000 other people. There's no magic to it I'm afraid; big budget = big bass, small budget = small bass.

Thanks for clarifying that. Doubt any of us would have figured it out otherwise... ;)

PB-2000. I doubt you won't like the PB-1000, but you'll almost certainly be looking to upgrade within a year. Might be better to skip that step and go right to the finish line.

There's a picture showing the back of the speaker at that link I included, so you can see exactly what it is there.

Given the size of your room output will be your friend, so perhaps the PB-1000 (http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/speaker-subwoofer-reviews/66069-svs-pb1000-sb1000-subwoofer-review.html) would...

Given your restriction on depth you should definitely consider the XTZ 93.21 (http://www.xtzsound.us/shop-en/Speakers/satellite-speaker/xtz-93-21), which are only 7" deep. I own them myself, and for...

Most of your needs are competing I'm afraid. The entire open space has to be factored in when sizing a subwoofer, not just what is designated as the viewing area, so you're looking at about 4300...

With no indication of your room size the best any of us can do is speculate, but assuming it's not terribly large another potential option to consider would be the Wave Crest HVL-1...

Personally, I think those options may not satisfy your needs. The PB-2000 is a potent subwoofer, but 5000 ft^3 is an awful big ask. In the SVS family you're probably looking at the PB12-Plus or...

I don't imagine any of it would be usable at this point; cabinet, driver or amp. Realistically speaking, it's probably not worth spending any more time on.

Show her the VBE-118 and say that's the model you want two of. After she gets done ranting tell her you'll compromise and get the SBE's instead. Problem solved... :)

I guess that would matter if you're powering them with 8 watts, but I assume you'll be using more. Either way, 90dB is not considered inefficient. 99-100dB is pretty rare in anything but pro audio....

90dB is anything but inefficient. AAMOF, it's the exact opposite; it's very efficient. You can easily power those with even a low end receiver.

The iNUKE NU1000DSP would be a better choice then the SA-1000 in my opinion. Half the price and a DSP is a hard to beat combo. That would probably be a real nice setup.
