Hello. I am looking to add a subwoofer to my system I mostly listen to music (rock, pop, jazz), so I am not looking for house-shaking bass.

My main speakers are Infinity Primus P-363s and the bass extension is 38 Hz. I found a Polk subwoofer at Best Buy on sale for $119.99 and the bass extension is 35 Hz. Is that worth it or should I look for something that has a lower bass extension? H. H. Gregg has a Yamaha subwoofer that goes to 25 Hz. It also is on sale for $119.99. (I'm not a fan of Yamaha speakers, but maybe the sub wouldn't be too bad?)

I'm looking to spend no more than $200 at this time. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)

Stay away from Polk and Yamaha for subwoofers. And I don't know which Yamaha sub you're talking about, but I can almost guarantee you it won't get to 25 Hz with any meaningful SPL. There are a few decent subwoofers under $200 (my first two choices would be Dayton).

If you can go a bit higher, the NXG NX-BAS-500 is a very good option.
