I think it's more which frequency response spec to believe - 30 or 38. If it's actually 30, it'd be a possible consideration. If it's actually 38, I would pass on it since I think I would want it to go to at least 30-ishHz at a reasonably solid dB level (if it's 30Hz at -/+12dB, then no thanks).

My Kube 10b is right next to the feeding/watering station and none of our 3 cats that use it have ever touched the sub other than to use its glossy top as a launch pad to my desk.
I'm slightly exaggerating with the cat - he's not terrible, he's just very playful, young, and we've only had him since January. My previous, 19-year old kitty wouldn't have made me bat an eyelash at the Kube (he had been declawed by the previous owner, and he lost almost all of his teeth near the end of his life - I miss that goober a lot
). He did make a couple of attempts with the Pioneer BS22s I had before my RTiAs, so I know he would take a serious, hard look at the Kube.
Budget wouldn't allow an SB-2000, sadly. My choices are pretty much narrowed down to the SB-1000, the MA Bronze W10 or the Q Acoustics 3070s (I finally found a good, Canadian source for the QA sub). The KEFs have been on the back of my mind, still, though, which is why I'm asking here, and I've seen virtually no info on the T-2. I'm not going to bog down or derail the comments by waxing poetic about my ongoing struggle to choose a sub for my 2ch set up, though!
