How cute are the Rythmik subs? Cuteness is a big factor.

I have 5 subs actually - two Rythmik F25s, two SVS SB 13 Ultras, and one HSU Mid Bass Module (MBM-12). The MBM-12 is only engaged for home theater. I use the subs for both 2 channel and home theater, but primarily for two channel listening. The Rythmiks can play low and also play higher into the bass region so they are good for both. I originally bought them primarily for home theater, but as I started learning more about the distributed bass / swarm systems, I thought why not try them? It made a huge difference in my two channel listening experience. Enrico and Brian at Rythmik are pretty easy to reach and very helpful. Give them a shout. My personal belief is that you're going to get more bang for your buck buying internet direct. There's a lot of dealer mark up on those Rel subs.
puppyt, don't make life more complicated than it has to be. Just buy another 210 and a good crossover like the JL Audio Or dbx Drive Rack units. Put the subs in the corners like you planned and I think once you get things set up you will be very happy with the results. You can always add more subs in the future but would wager that you will not feel the need.
I personally use 4 subwoofers but I'm forced to to get an equivalent radiation pattern to my satellites which are 8 foot tall ESLs (line source).
People with point source speakers which is the vast majority, can do just fine with two subwoofers in the typical residential setting. One subwoofer is never satisfactory. Those who think it is will change their mind when they hear and feel what two does.
