I previously owned a PW-2200 V.1 and it is an amazing subwoofer for the price. There are many reviews for the V.1 2200 out there in the Googleverse.
I have never auditioned the PS-1200. However, the PW series is a step above if memory serves. By far your best place for advice will be to simply call Paradigm. They are quite nice and I believe they have employees who are fluent in French as well as English.
