Not sure what "clear enough at low volume to avoid waking the kids up" means?

If low frequencies are produced...they will be heard. Subwoofers are the least critical in terms of our ability to...

Why don't you just set your blu-ray input at -12 on the receiver for the LFE channel and for whatever input you use for music set it to 0dB.

You'll boost the bass by 12dB for only that one...

Yes, no argument there, three "small" ports are far superior as even two of them exceed the surface area of a 4" port.

The PC-12 that the PC-2000 replaced did not have a variable tuning configuration. It's one of the big differentiators from the 12 to the 12+. So I don't think that was a consideration when...

additionally, can you just raise the gain on the sub itself to compensate?

I would go with the PC-2000 or higher. If I was doing sealed I would want at least a SB13-U. However, I think a PC-2000 will rock the joint pretty well.

I don't have dual pluses (I have just one) but I am a big proponent of trying to EQ with the PEQs first and then running Audyssey. My results were night and day better this way.
