looking for decent powered sub questions

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I'm setting up a small home theater in my basement, I already have a 5.1
speaker system (infinity) and 2 in cieling speakers, so I'm doing a 7.1, I
need a powere subwoofer, the room is pretty small ( the TV area is about 20'
X 20 ft. square with low drop cielings (about 7 feet high, mabye a little
less) looking on ebay I see a acoustic research 100 watt powered sub (model:
ars108psb) for about 100 bucks shipped. I also see a yahamha YST-SW015 for
about the same price. are these decent options? can I do better in my price
range, what other subs should I be looking at? I'm also looking at a
reciever, I have an old kenwood 5.1 I can use right now but want to do a 7.1
eventually, so suggestion on what reciever to get (again, on a budjet) would
be nice. I watch a lot of movies and play X-box and Ps2 games on my 27"
HDTV, so I'd like for the reciever to have component switching if possible.
thanks again
