+1 to craigslist (or even usaudiomart.com). My vote goes to a pair of Paradigm 5se MKII or 7se (essentially the same speaker). You should be able to find a pair in decent shape for around $120.

A single SVS PB-1000 will have more overall output and greater extension than four Dayton SUB-1000s. Four Daytons spread out around the room will offer better FR smoothing at the main listening...

Since you're the only user and you (most likely) sit in the "sweet spot", you can get away without a CC speaker for now for movies, so IMO put the $500 toward a good sub.

Your room is very small,...

If I were shopping:
- for subs, I wouldn't look at DefTech, so I'd take the dual PB12s;
- for a flagship SVS sub, I'd be looking at the SB/PB16-Ultra, not the PB12-Plus.

If you shopped local used-goods sites / classifieds and demo'd gear that's available in your area, you could rely on your ears. If they like what they hear and the price is right, you're set. :)
