I hear what you are saying............... for large rooms there are some awesome deals on some really powerful subs.
If you have a very small room(carpet,low ceiling) with front speakers that have 15" woofers you will be surprised how good my cheapo
two used Klipsch Synergy Sub 12 (300/650 watt BASH amp)sound on movies with my Cornwalls. I liked the way they blended in just enough on special effects.
I found a NIB left over stock, Sub 12 last "Black Friday" on Amazon $245.00 free shipping for my Heresy II in the bedroom. My other two are 7 years old,no issues.
If I had my HT system back in the other house with that huge room....... SVS or Danley DTS 10 etc is a must. As there are so many Great powered subs to choose from now.
I had a "Sunfire" Sub with a Carver amp many years ago that was Great for how small it was VS what is out now.
I have not heard any of the newer Klipsch subs so i can't comment on them. A lot of owners tend to run the gain on subs too high and they sound muddy etc
I have the gain turned down really low on all 3 of mine. I don't play rap music that has the BOOMING bass that rattles your teeth....some say fake bass.
For movies the SVS tube sub tuned correctly will shake your guts(special effects) in a medium/large sized room. If I had the $$ and a large room a Danley DTS 10 is hard to beat.
