Which Subwoofer would be best?

Hello everyone,,
I am currently looking to upgrade my system, I have decided to use RC85i's for all 5 of my HT speakers. I will be driving the theater with a Denon 3808CI. My room dimensions are 11 X 16 with the system on one of the 11 foot walls. What I want to do is place 2 subwoofers at the opposite side of the room and on the opposing corners. My budget is 300.00 per sub using the 300.00 credit for buying the RC85i's. I have used this Foum in the past and found it to be extreme helpful, I look foward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance.

PS the equipment list below is from 2004 so none of it is relevant anymore.

    Is this system for HT mainly? In my last house I had 5 x RC85i's and they were really nice for both HT and music, although I was able to prep the spaces during construction and build half-assed enclosures with 2x4's and insulation.
    You can get these refurbished Martin Logan Dynamo 700's on Ebay from Safe and Sound for $309.99 shipped. They were originally around $600 I believe so you'd be getting a good value. I bought one a few months back before springing for my Rythmik and they are very good.

    I would suggest Polk Audio PSW505 12-Inch Powered Subwoofer based on your requirements.
