I saw the JBL CSS11 at Costco store for less than $200 . Would this be a reasonable <$200 sub for a basic Home Theater setup? It is a very large sub as compared to the 8" $99 Pioneer subwoffer it was sitting next to in the store at $99.

Other folks on this forum recommended the Energy s-10.3 to me, which is a consideration at $200. However, I want the subwoofer I purchase to be magnetically shielded as I will be placing behind TV close to PS3. I've read the Energy s-10.3 literatue and it says nothing about being magnetially shielded so I am assuming it is not. Anyway, trying to find the best value for a modest home theater setup in the $200 range. Thanks for your help.
