Too many choices... HELP!

I'm currently looking to purchase a good subwoofer to complete my HT system. I don't want to spend an outrageous amount of money, but am looking at about $500. I'm seriously leaning towards the Velodyne DPS-12 ($400 + S&H online

My current set up is a Sony STRDE-995 receiver with 6 Speakercraft AIM-8 One in-ceiling speakers for surround. My family room is about 16'x16'x9' and I'll use the system primarily for HT, but also for music about 30% of the time.

Any other recommendations or concerns about my current set up???

Thanks in advance!!!

Id go with the velodyne. But you should check out other such as SVS...etc

How the Sony STR-DE995 treating you?

Thanks for your quick feedback!

I've had the Sony for about 6 months now and it meets my needs so far, but it does seem a little weak. I've noticed that when watching a movie or a game with people over (like during March Madness), I have to crank the volume way up to get a good volume. I've had it maxed out before and it wasn't that loud... at least not what I would have expected for the max volume. Do you think adding my sub will help w/this by taking some of the burden off my Speakercraft ceiling speakers?

I'm also not sure if I'm overloading it as I have 3 remote speaker locations connected to the B speaker output on the receiver through a speaker selector. These B speakers are usually turned off, but depending on which rooms I have selected on, I'm running anywhere from just the 6 speakers in the main room to 12 total if all 3 of the other locations (2 speakers in each room) are on. I rarely have all speakers running at once, but it's not uncommon to have 10 speakers running. I just don't know enough about ohms, wattage, etc...
