Any suggestions or recommendations? Thanks in advance for your help.
I have the JBL you mentioned and have really been enjoying it. I've heard the Polk and wasn't impressed, to me it SOUNDED like a $150 sub. I haven't heard the NXG, but Jim gives it a good review and that's worth taking into consideration. I'm still working with dialing the ES250PBK in, but it does a really nice job with all types of music and has a pleasant (not bloaty) sound to it. It does a nice job on home theatre as well, but it doesn't have that SUPER low presence (sub 25hz), so it leaves me a little wanting in that area. But for me, my biggest criteria was that it needed to sound clean and blend nicely with my KEF Q's, and it does that very well. The auto on feature also works beautifully with no audible sound when it comes on. Hope this helps!
