I'd reconsider getting a sub that doesn't at least have some pretense of being articulate. Your PSB speakers are pretty nice, and have a reputation for being precise, so getting a subwoofer that isn't might result in some audible integration issues. For example, that C1500K kit is a driver, amp and enclosure for $340. All those components for that price infers something has to give. Looking at the spec's depth is definitely one of them, but are dynamics another? Your room is not terribly large, at less that 1800 ft^3, so you may want to consider something smaller with better components.
FWIW... I'm a fan of PE; I think they offer a lot, have very solid customer service and for the most part their prices are good. The sub kits I'm not so sure of though. Take something like the RS1200K
. For $580 it seems to be a deal -- and is probably a nice subwoofer -- but for the same price you can get a Rythmik LV12R. I have a hard time believing the RS1200K would equal or best the Rythmik.
