Funny you say that, as that's where his wife was headed. He bought a house a few months back and I convinced him he needed to upgrade a little.
He finally conceded to a simple setup so I snagged him an AX200u, some inwalls, and built him a 120" screen. His wife wouldn't let me build a sub as she didn't want something obnoxiously loud or large.
Well she called me around Christmas from Best Buy, asking which sub she should finally give in and get him. Funny it just happened to line up with the pre order on the SI's.

Single EP1500. It will be running in 4 ohm bridged mode, so there will be plenty of power there. Volume is 2.65 cf, and even with 800 watts there is no chance of over excursion (he is the set it and forget about it type). So needless to say it should be idiot proof.
I initially wanted to go ported, but was trying to stay with her wishes of keeping to the smallest overall footprint (both height, width, and depth), so I chose to sacrifice some output and go sealed. He's not one who really cranks his movies and just wanted something to blend in with the rest of the speakers while giving a little bit of bump, so I figured this would be perfect.
