I agree with Jim Wilson. The Rythmik LV12R is an excellent sub for the price, and a sub you should consider (with the idea of a second sub if your room swallows it). And you're right, picking up a...

Your area turns out to be in the large room category, but only barely (3,000 to 5,000 cu. ft. is considered large). As long as you don't have open areas adjacent to that room, I think a single, well...
