You don't say whether the space is acoustically treated (with bass traps in particular), but I'll assume it is a basically untreated normal residential listening room.
As yours is a hi quality critical listening dedicated stereo music setup, I suggest a hi qual sub with the wonderful Velodyne EQ built-in like the DD or DD+ series.
For a 3300 cu ft room, combined music and HT applicatio, I have two DD10s, as is noted in my sig
. I like smaller subs as the 10" speakers are very "fast" and accurate. Of course two subs increases the volume/capacity which can be effectively "filled". But most importantly, two subs allows you to use a sub crawl or sub haul to place the subs to cancel room modes. Then you apply the EQ. And that, my friend, yields wonderful tight punchy bass.
Hadn't seen Rob's post but I think we are in agreement and that sounds like a deal to me!.
