Polk PSW110..Not enough??!!

So, I'm just about finished my garage theater conversion..It's just a 5.1 set up right now...The sub is a Polk psw110...I was using this in my living room (12x16) and it would shake the walls..I now have it out in my dedicated theater (16x25)..I have it at about 75% up on the sub and +3 on my receiver...It sounds nothing like it did in my living room, even after turning it up...It just seems like a mid range and doesn't hit the lows as much..Is it just because of the size of the room, or do the acoustics play a bigger part??...Should I add another sub or just get one nicer one??
I figure I could sell the one I have for about $120..So I would have a total budget of $400 to spend on a new one..

Corners often work well, particularly corners near the key seating(when the sub may be small for room size). Also, don't forget to re-tweak levels and phase each time you try a new spot.

I agree on corners. My XV-30's came to life when I moved them from the near field seating position to about 11 ft away in to each of the front corners. I was surprised by the gain considering that the subs were pretty much end tables to my seats. The Triax's will be going in the same corners.
