Hey everyone - my theater will be about 15' x 20'. How many watts should I look at for a sub?

If your question is your trying to decide on a subwoofer based on the "watts" its amp delivers, you are in for quite the education on the forum.
For a start, what is your budget and the rest of the system?

Ha, I know very little about this stuff. I've worked with computers for over five years, but this stuff is a whole new animal. I'm just starting, so thanks for the help!
My budget for the entire project (including drywall and everything included in finishing a 15' x 20' basement) is around $10,000.

$10,000 for the whole schpiel isn't going to get you much past framing, wiring, sheetrocking and painting the room. Not to mention any acoustical isolation measures you might want to look at, plus room treatments, lighting, carpeting etc. Look in the Home Theater building section of the forum. It'll give you more of an idea of what I'm referring to. Most guys have $10K+ just in their electronics.(Not me, I can't afford it).
