Unless the room is tiny, I'd def go with a 12" sub.. I have the older model of this JBL in one of my rooms and it rocks (paid $159 on ebay years ago)

http://cgi.ebay.com/JBL-S120PII-12-4...item5ad6b99e66

In my dedicated theater room I run a Bash powered SVSOUND.COM subwoofer, which for the money will DOMINATE anything else you put there. Those subs put out so much quality, low hz bass you can shake the road outside of your house! (My sub puts hits as low as 15hz)

Well if pissing off your neighbors and setting off seismic alarms is the goal, then yes I agree, go with LiquidKaos's recommendation.

The sub I bought appeared in brand new condition and works flawlessly. It still has a 2 year warranty as well.

You may be able to find a PSW505 for a little more than your budget refurbished or even brand new. I believe they were recently discontinued so they are being blown out on brand new models.
I bought some floor standing speakers from them, and they did come in perfect condition even tho they are labeled as refurbished.

Amazon still has the Polk in stock if you decide to take it over a Dayton.
