The SB-2000 will be a great subwoofer for you. And yes, SVS provides the best perks in the industry (but that's calculated into its pricing structure).

BTW, the BPS-212 does indeed include free...

^^ In a small room (under 1,500 cu. ft.) the SB-1000 should work very well. It is small (a 13-inch cube) and is specified to go down to 24 Hz, but with a small room it may reach 20 Hz. I got one...

The Dayton SUB 1500 has a 15-inch driver for about 200 bucks. Or get two Dayton SUB-1200s (12-inch drivers) for around 130 bucks each at Parts Express.

A little higher up the food chain as far as...

No need to apologize. But Maggies are Maggies, whether they are the new models or those from the 70s and 80s. They will all have a very similar sound. I'd take a look to see if you can find some...

Sorry, I don't own dual SB-1000s or SB-2000s (although I did buy an SB-1000 for my son's office). But I'll add my thoughts.

The dimensions you gave puts your room at a bit over 1,700 cu. ft. (if...

I'm not sure why you are comparing two JL Audio E110s with two SB-2000s. Obviously, you're choosing sealed because of size, but you should be comparing the JL Audio to the SVS SB13-Ultra. Not sure...

^^ That will look fantastic. Very impressive. Just don't know what else to say concerning the sub. Just try it out where you want it and see if it works.
