Start with the sub crawl, try to find the BEST spot for you sub in your room for your listening position. There are many explanations on how to do this. Then, re-evaluate your Klipsch. It may not be everything you want, but it is likely better than what you're experiencing now. Turning the sub level up the way you're doing is a good way to blow the sub and if it's in the wrong spot, you're just not going to get much output.
Next if you want more, these are two options I would suggest:
1. Get another Klipsch (on sale today), add it to your room based on your sub crawl put both subs in the 2 best positions in the room. Simply corner loading them would be a good place to start (again, many explanations on basic setups for dual subs are available online)
2. Sell the Klipsch and get a bigger better sub. The SVS PB2000 is an excellent suggestion and represents the basics of what I suggest you look for: bigger box, more watts. This is a case where bigger really is better. Bigger boxes are MUCH more efficient with turning power into sound, so you can get lower Hz and better decibels with a bigger ported box, without having to increase the power too much.
