+1 to conduit. And to monoprice or BJC cables. (I have a 50' BJC DVI-to-DVI cable, w/ DVI-to-HDMI adapters on each end, connecting my AVR to my PJ through a conduit.)

If it's sealed (i.e., you can close the door and there are no other openings), your room is small enough that it could provide sufficient cabin gain to help a sealed sub dig very deep. In that case,...

What resolution are you pushing over the longer cable? Try lowering it (i.e., have the player output a lower resolution and let the PJ upscale it).

As a temporary measure, grab a pair of gently-used bookshelf speakers off your local craigslist for ~$20 and you've got 5.1.

OP, you've got a large room. I'd start with a 2.1 or 3.1 system and put more money into the sub - at a bare minimum, an SVS PB-1000.

The SB-2000 is a sealed sub - no port to worry about. The XV15se's port requires a few inches of clearance from the nearest wall, IIRC.
