Here is CEA-2010 measurement of STF-2 (from Hsu website) and NX-BAS-500 (from Sound and Vision review)

40     114            116.1

Based on measurement above, do you think that they are similar performance-wise?

Did you check to see if the measurements are taken at the same distance? If not, the SPL figures would have to be adjusted.

Hsu website says 1m ground plane measurement. Brent in S&V says he peformed CEA-2010A output measurement at 3m and added +9.5db to scale the measurement to 1m reporting standard mandated by CEA-2010.

Once you drop below $500, I don't think you will find a better quality sub than Hsu's lower offerings.  They would be my pick if I had to limit my budget to under $500.

I feel the same way; I've tried some other sub $500 subs, and HSU makes a better sub IMO. If the OP can push his budget to $499, the SVS PB-1000 is definitely an upgrade.
