Need Sub recommendations SVS PB2000 Duals or single PB3000

Although the pricing isnt exactly the same my dilemma is get 2 PB2000s (not the pro in this scenario as Im looking at the Outlet ones) or get a single PB3000, and then maybe down the road get another if Need more. I understand that a dual sub doesnt increase the loudness too much but does even out the sound and any gaps which makes me torn.

As for my setup it is as follows
Room is a 'great room' with a family room attached to the kitchen to be one large room
Room in total is 30 x 15 x 12H
Family room portion of that is about 15 x 15 x 12H (but again its all open)

For the sound I have
Denon AVR 1915 (although been eyeing the Denon 3600H or maybe 3700 when it comes out next year)
Polk Monitor 70s for Fronts, Polk CS2 for center, and Polk Monitor40s for my sides and rears (7.2 currently)
The subs Id be replacing would be Polk PSW505s (I have 2 currently)

With that said, I'm open to any thoughts on the topic. Thanks in advance!

Does anyone ever search before posting a thread?

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

And I thought I was the only grumpy bugger that thought this with the continued posts that are repeat questions...

Didn’t bug me at first, but when they are phrased the exact same way every time, it gets annoying.

Like sometimes people have similar questions, where their situations might differ, but this is almost exactly like every other thread :/

Always go dual 2 PB 2000. Is the advice I got from SVS. In my theatre room I got a total of 6db increase.

It really depends on the room. In a big open space I'd go for the single PB-3000 to start. Open spaces generally tend to not have the severe acoustic/standing wave issues that a smaller pair of subs would help.

The HSU VTF-15H MK2 is on sale for Memorial day. If you buy 2, you can save about $80.00 combined.

I have a single pb2000 and can’t wait to get another because I have some dead spots in my room. I would go dual pb2000 now unless you see yourself willing to spend the money on another 3000 down the road.
