I would appreciate any advice or recommendations!
Advice: expand your budget a bunch more.
Recommendation: a pair of Rythmik LV12R with an eye on a third.
Recommendation: a PSA XV15 with an eye on two more down the road.
Recommendation: a SVS PC12-Plus with an eye on a second one down the road.
(and with all due respect, yes, I'm very aware the above recommendations are well above your stated budget)
You have a large room and based on the first comment of yours that was quoted forward, the above recommendations are the best recommendations so as to increase the chances of finding subwoofer based happiness in a room your size. In my opinion, even by increasing your budget to accommodate my recommendations, you will not find "bliss" but expectedly, you will find happiness.
(IMHO, if you buy less than what was recommended above, in a room that size, you'll be met with disappointment.)
