I agreed with cel4145 and mojomike. Epik subs (Legend and Empire) are very well known as "kings of midbass slam subs for its price". According to the picture the room is not too big, so the Legend should performs excellent in your room. I have an Xref12 and wish to try to hear an Epik Empire in my 16x15 room. The Xref in my room sounds pretty awesome, very clean, tight and punchy bass and the only way to get that was ... was..... Sub placement! My sub on the floor facing to the listening positions sounds pretty good, but lacks something I cant described so, when I raised the sub about 2 feet from floor (Im using my Bic PL200 as a stand for the xref
) and facing to the wall about 20" away from wall the results was AMAZING!!!!
Give it a try with your legend before buying any other sub. Try it. Stack your legend, and give it more space between the wall and the sub. According to the picture seems its about less that 6 inches apart from wall. Im not an expert but I recommend to you to move it at least 12" - 16" away from wall.
Another recommendation is why dont you try to get an AVR. Im pretty sure you can get an cheap Onkyo or Yamaha with HDMI connectors and sup preouts for less than $250.
