Neither. Your living room is huge and my bet is that it opens up adjacent rooms. That has to be 4000 cubic feet at the least, no?
You’d want some thing much more powerful to get feasible bass.
Ported will be your best bet while sealed will be smaller.
I would go for two VTF3 MK5’s from HSU at $1750/pair. This is much better, I would say upwards as twice as good than two SB2000’s at $1500/pair for a 16% cost increase.
If anything, two VTF2 MK5’s at $1150 would still be much better, and now cheaper.
But imo, nothing smaller than the VTF3’s will give any usable output in that size of a room.
You should be looking at multiple 15” subs, at the least. Not small sealed 12” or 13” subs.
Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)
