Ported subs are less likely to go as low as a sealed version and generally sound poorer but anything is possible as long as it doesn't break the laws of physics. Anything called a subwoofer can theoretically go down to 20hz but the question is how loud can it it play at that frequency and how many decibels down is it.

Without a doubt, in many instances two placement optimized $100 subs trumps one $200 sub.

I work from home a lot and have a formal home office. The office is 12x15. I like to rock out while working. I currently just have 2 Polk TSi 500 speakers but want quite a bit more bass. I really don’t want to spend a lot because I basically just use them for computer speakers run through a Denon 940. I was thinking either 2 BIC PL-200 II or 1 Paradigm DSP 3200, SVS SB1000, or maybe an HSU. I think having two $300 subs vs 1 $600 sub would fill the room more uniformly.

Does anyone have any thoughts or other subs I should consider. It would basically be a 2.2 system with the two towers in two opposite corners one on each side of m.
