Change them back to small. If audyssey said your sub was too low in volume you should have had to turn it up to proceed. Did you?

The STF-2 is a ported sub. The PB1000 is probably a little on the small size. PB2000 is where its at or equivalent from a PSA, Rhythmic, etc.

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...

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.
