I'd start with reading the manual, which will probably tell you to max out the LPF (low-pass filter, or "crossover") on the sub and set the gain to about 1/2 (or "noon"). Then you run YPAO, then you...

The subs are driven by the iNUKE, not the Denon, so there's no problem there. :)

Assuming 8' ceilings, that's 2,800 cu.ft. Not a small space.

1. What's your budget?
2. Given the size of your space (and the concrete floor), I hope the budget's not too small. :)

The PB-2000s are no slouches and a pair of them will provide lots of output and sub-20Hz extension. But either of the HSU subs will offer more overall output, better extension (in one-port mode) and...

There's only so much a modest-sized bookshelf speaker with a 6-1/2" midbass driver can do with very low-frequency content / LFE. IMO, add a sub and use a crossover of ~80Hz.

"Virtual subwoofer" implies that low frequencies are somehow being produced by your speakers. Since you're crossing over at 70Hz, a more apt description is "non-existent subwoofer". ;)

At 3,672 cu.ft., your room is fairly large and IMO would benefit from dual subs. If adding a second sub later on is an option, either of the HSU subs would work, as would a Rythmik FVX15 ($999,...

According to the product page, the 685s have roughly comparable sensitivity (87dB) to the CM6s, so they wouldn't be any easier to drive.

I used to have a front-firing ported sub, now I have down-firing sealed subs. In both cases - for both music and movies - I use an 80Hz crossover. It works for me in my space. :)
