Which sub would you recommend

Hi, I have RTI A7 towers and the CS A4 centre and now want to get a sub.
These are the ones I am looking at and there prices. My room size is about 1900 square feet. Is it really worth paying $250 more for the SVS?

SVS-PB1000 pro $1000.
SVS SB1000 pro $900.
Polk PW505 $900
Polk HTS12 $750
Klipsch R-120SW $750

    REL should be an option as well...

    Onkyo Integra M504, Bottlehead Foreplay III, Denon SACD, Thiel CS2.3, NHT VT-2, VT-3 and Evolution T6, Infinity RSIIIa, SDA1C and a few dozen other speakers around the house I change in and out.

    Is this a market outside the USA? Prices for SVS are lower here. If it is outside the USA there may be better bargains.

    What is your ultimate budget? One sub or two?

    Another vote for the REL subs... the T-series is good stuff.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, Arcam AVR21, Oppo UDP-203 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk Audio Legend L800 with height modules, L400 Center Channel Polk audio AB800 "in-wall" surrounds. Marantz MM7025 stereo amp. Yamaha CD-S2100 SACD Player.

    Since your room is larger than my house, I would say get two of whatever sub you're considering.
    Maybe even four. ;)
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?
