For $566: An HSU VTF-2 MK4.
For just under $600: The Rythmik LV12R.

+1 to "no". :(

I'd go with a minimum of a pair of:
- HSU VTF-3 MK5 HP
- Rythmik FVX15
- PSA 15V

(Start with one, add a second one when budget permits.)

Klipsch Sub-12. Amazon has it for $300, but it was on sale earlier this year for as little as $200-$230.

$365, shipped, will get you an HSU STF-2.

$198, shipped, gets you a Dayton SUB-1500.

Run a single male-to-male RCA cable:
- from your AVR's subwoofer pre-out;
- to the subwoofer's L/MONO input.

And set the "HIGH CUT" switch on the sub to "HIGH".

Correct.

Yes, the difference will be drastic. The HSU will have noticeably more overall output, and much more output at and below 20Hz compared to the PB-1000.

The PB-2000 will have more overall output than the PB-1000, greater output at the PB-1000's lower limit, and it will extend slightly below it.

But if you're thinking that $800 is do-able, only $89...

Yup. Did you listen to all three amps at the same measured level, or is the "70-75 db" in your original post just the volume level indicated on your pre/pro (or AVR)?

Which won't matter much if your main listening position is in a null. ;)
