    That's a pretty nice room. 22x20x9? I would go with two 12" subs instead of one....
    Does this room only have 1 door entrance, or just an open space?

    I don't think you can go wrong with HSU,
    Velodyne or SVS. I have 2 VTF-2's in my
    main home theater (about 2000 sq ft, open
    on one side to a kitchen) and they put out
    more than enough quality bass. I also have
    a old Velodyne ULD-12 in another listening area
    and it has held up well (after 12 yrs of use). Build
    quality is unsurpassed. Never heard an SVS, but
    people on this forum and others love 'em.

    Another route to go is DIY 15" Dayton Titanic MKIII sub
    from Parts Express. Great sub for for $578 with free
    shipping. Assembled it goes for $678. I just ordered
    the 10" Titanic MKIII kit for a second, smaller home theater.
    Should get it tomarrow. I think if you can walk and chew gum
    at the same time, you can put these Dayton kits together.
    Anyways another (possibly) way to go....good luck...vardo
