    I'm looking at:

    Hsu STF-3 or VTF-2
    SVS PB10 or PB12
    Outlaw LFM-1

    and was also playing with this idea:

    2 Outlaw LFM-2s, or
    2 Hsu STF-1s, or
    2 Dayton 12" subs

    It seems like opinion on these boards is equally divided as to whether having 2 subs is a good or bad proposition, but then again if I find that having 2 subs spread apart doesn't work in my room I could try to put them close together which would eliminate that problem and bolster SPL while maintaining speed and accuracy advantages of a smaller woofer, right?

    The 2 small subs instead of 1 big sub is also appealing in that if I move into a smaller place with a smaller living room I could put 1 sub in a bedroom system.

    I'm about a 70-80% music listener (jazz, classical, vocal rock), but would like to have some nice LFE once in a while during movies too, which my Ascend 340s definitely are not designed to provide.

    Used SVS 16-46pc+ or 20-39pc+.

    I had about that to spend and could not have spent it better then I did on my 16-46PC+ that was mint and is still under warranty.
    Was $600 to my door!
