I will ask my question another way.

What is the minimum single sub that would provide a significant improvement in low bass output to supplement a pair of Definitive Tech 8040's in a 20 by 20 foot detached garage. Emphasis on "minimum." If making a significant improvement can't be made on my budget, I will reconsider.

UPDATE 4-17-17: Well, after a bunch of research, i.e. 6 woofer manufacturer web sites, hundreds of sub forum posts, and dozens of Amazon and Crutchfield user revies, I answered my own question "what is the minimum sub to supplement my 8040's in my listening space."

The Hsu VTF-2 MK5. The SVS and Rythmik were contenders. But Hsu had a "B" stock price I couldn't resist. Plus, it fills in the 17 to 35 Hz range that my 8040's either struggle with or totally lack.

I will be testing various sub and amp settings over the next few weeks using the Android app call Audio Tool.

So far this sub is awesome with my system, especially hooked into the sub output of my 31-band equalizer where I can adjust the 20, 25, 31.5, 40 and 60 Hz bands.
I would wait till the used market has a reference sub. They pop up at least monthly for me. I have a notification when they do

Default Studio Monitor 55

I am considering purchasing 3 of these to replace my front speakers (energy c-200, c-50). Would these be an upgrade or equal replacement speaker? If I got these I would move my c-200's to the rear to use as surrounds. How would the c-200 work as surrounds with the 55's?

Another alternative would be the ELAC B6 6.5" bookshelf speakers. Any opinions on those? other speaker suggestions?

Thanks for the info but that would be too much money for me to spend on a pair of speakers. $400 max per pair would be all I'd want to pay.
