This, some people think the digital to analog converter in the blu-ray player sounds better....I personally think this gets into the snake oil part of the audio realm but its up to them to decide.

I have no idea what you are talking about. That shows that subwoofer tails off to around 88dB at 10Hz. The all time max they've measured is a little over 100dB...but that's not that sub.

I think you are severely limiting your output due to space. If anything...go with a single SB-2000 or SB-13U if space is a constraint. However, even a single PB-2000 will best both of those in terms...

Yup and that's a perfect example of where a SB13 is a better fit. However, simply stating that the SB13 goes lower is a bit of a misnomer as if it doesn't have the output to support the room size...

You need a fairly small sealed room to get appreciable room gain. Even then, the output from a PB13 in 16Hz mode will be much more appreciable than a single SB13.

Two 12" subs would give you +6dB more output than one (double). Adding a second sub gives you more output and a smoother frequency response (if properly integrated).

Not quite that simple, but in general yes. My SVS PB-10 is probably better than almost all consumer/retail class 12" subs. So its not simply a matter of driver surface area but that does play a...

All things held equally, yes a single 12" has more output than two 8". It's a bit simplistic as I am only looking at surface area of the driver when analyzing this.

However, no doubt, the better...

To simplify it, the larger the sub the lower the frequency response range of that speaker. If you have 10 4 inch speakers they will still have the same frequency response of 1 4 inch speaker...but...

Yeah I hadn't heard that before but I am guessing it must be true. It must have seen the drop in response at 40Hz and assumed that's where my PB12-plus gave out (right...). So dropping the response...

Receiver seems a bit overkill. I would want to see more money put into the subwoofer as that's a bit small for that size room.

They might but they only guarantee two points will not come in contact with the wall. This way every edge is damped. Plus it was $4 for 17 feet of the stuff at depot. Cheap fix.
