Default What Sub Should I Go With

So im kind of stuck at the moment looking to spend no more then 300 on a new sub for the home theater. Any input would be great. Ones im looking at so far are.

1. Polk Audio PSW505 12-Inch Powered Subwoofer

2. Klipsch Sub-12HG Synergy Series 12-Inch 300-Watt Subwoofer


Also are there pros and cons of a front firing sub over a down firing?

Don't cut corners on a Sub the new REL's are really fine more $$ but worth every penny of it.

I know it's more but I would suggest you hold off till you can invest a little more if yuou buy one of the others now they are hard to resell unless their high end,
