I would go for some Infinity Primus p363s in that budget. Entry level Polks have all been awful in my experience.

Did you register the receiver with Denon when you bought it? Would the place you bought it still have your record of transaction on file? If so, they could print you out a new receipt.

The only way to get a smoother frequency response than a single subwoofer position is if you have freedom of placement for the subs. They have to be able to compensate for each others nulls. If that...

As has been said, I think you can do better than 100" at 12'. As for CNet's favorable reviews, they review everything favorably, so they are not a good source. The SVS and Aperion stuff doesn't look...

Hsu always has sales on some items. I don't think you will see sales on their 15" subs though, although maybe briefly on black friday or something like that. Reaction Audio is having a labor day sale.

There are some decent in-wall speakers, but no good in-wall subs. Something I might look at is the Klipsch R-5650 (http://www.acousticsounddesign.com/core/view_BigProduct.cfm?pid=1350&sc=54) speakers...
