    The list is base on good review from internet forum and
    subject to available in my country(Malaysia) and also within my budget.

    2. Paradigm PS 1000 ($2200)
    3. MJ Acoustics Pro 50 ($2200)
    4. B&W ASW 300 Series ($1800)

    If they are American dollars you are quoting, it really is expensive buying this sort of equipment in Malaysia as the Velodyne and Paradigm subs are selling at $250 and $500 respectively in USA.

    You have a large room and if you want to fill it with bass I think that you are going to need one of the larger and more powerful subs and either the Velodyne or Paradigm would seem to be the one to go for. I think that whilst the MJ Pro 50 is a good sub it is more suitable for smaller rooms.

    Have you looked at the possibility of importing a sub directly from the manufacturer as so many of are now doing here in UK.

    SVS seems to be the forum's favoured sub brand which is bought directly from the American manufacturer and shipped to your door but Rocket also sell direct to the public and their smaller subs find great favour on US forums although no-one has taken the plunge here just yet.
