Paradigm Monitor 7 v.6 Sub Match

Hi All,
Wondering if anyone would know what the best/most appropriate Subwoofer match would be for a pair of Paradigm Monitor 7 v.6 towers. Currently running with a Paradigm PDR-10 v.4 but think it's not enough. Would like to stick with Paradigms since the entire system is in the same series and brand.
Open to any feedback and advise. Would like to make an appropriate decision and. Or anything that is over powering.

Thanks in advance!

whats the budget?
do you have placement restrictions?
how big is the room and connected areas?


for timbre matching, subs and surrounds do not have to be the same as the l/c/r

locking yourself to paradigm subs only will eliminate a lot of better subs for the same money

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.

Ya I am running all paradigms and am looking to replace my pw-2200.. With a hsu vtf 15 or the PSA v1500.. Don't worry about matching the brand of you sub.. Now the Left Right Center is another story..

I've just always been a loyal Paradigm owner, and kind of want to stay that way. However, I am aware that there are a lot other subs that will out perform the typical Paradigm sub. Budget is around $800- $1000 CDN. SVS and HSU have been on my mind. I find the HSU kinda lacking on "beauty" in my opinion.
Room size is approximately 18' x 12' x 9'H, and is a living room which is open to the adjacent dining room and front hallway. Small house overall.

The questions people are likely to ask can all be found in this thread. If you can provide that type of insight you'll get suggestions much better suited to your needs.

 
If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite...

Understood, and much appreciated!
Here is what I can add:
Budget: $800-1000 CDN
Size: Within 15"W x 18"H x 18"D (thereabouts)
Room Dimensions: Living Room, measuring approximately 18' x 12' x 9'H
Primary Uses: 75% HT / 25% Music (typically EDM style)
Listening Habits: Mostly listening at modest volumes (5 year old in house as well), but when empty, I listen at high volumes (measured at around 102 DB in the room with current setup).
Appearance Requirements: Needs to look nice. Somewhat utilitarian is okay, but nothing brutally ugly. Does not have to be a piece of art either.
Timeframe: no rush

Hope this helps dial in the feedback a little better.

hsu might ship to canada but at a premiuim
svs has an outlet here electronicsforless
I have the pb2000 and highly recommend it , but it is a large sub, i reccomend making a cardboad model to see the actual size in your home
I don't mind the looks but that is always a personal thing

Edit: psa will also ship to canada and they are a top contender sub as well
