Get yourself a real sub, one that is clean and has sonic boom like properties. You can thank me later. :)

If you are going to use subs, I'd recommend buying another one like you have now. You probably blew the Polk up because it couldn't keep up with the Sony or the Sony was louder and you couldn't hear the Polk clipping. If you do mismatch, you have to set the levels carefully leaving the smaller of the 2 plenty of headroom so it isn't driven too hard, in other words, keep your volume level on the sub well below 12 o'clock. In a 2 sub set up it's just easier to use matching subs. And your frequency response would be more uniform. A correct sub set up is difficult enough with peaks and valleys without 2 different brands to contend with.

Why do you have to have 2 subs? What other equipment are you using?
