Help plz I need a sub or something to boost my low end what's cheap and good?

What’s your price range? My immediate suggestion is an SVS SB-1000. So much bang for your buck, and I’m sure you can catch a good deal coming up this week. If you have a large space / bigger budget / etc. let me know. But given your comment I really think that would be the best bang for your buck and round out your set up. Plus there’s an app where you can set it up and tweak; super user friendly. 
 

One piece of advice I can give for your set up is also speaker placement. I know it’s easier said than done as your room might not allow it, but if you can get your (badass) Def Techs on stands that would help a lot. It’ll bring them to ear height, and you can get them away from the wall a little (if the room allows). Your soundstage will improve dramatically. If not, maybe try experimenting by putting them on the outside cubes of the third row and see what that sounds like. Toe them in a little (stands or not) so they’re just angled slightly to the outside of each respective ear at your listening position. Def Techs are already killer (I loved my SM55s — recently gave them to a buddy as his intro to hifi) and I remember how much they opened up one I got their positioning right. But I do agree that they could use a sub to help round them out. But yah, just play around and see what happens. Took me 15 years to get a room where I could even place speakers the right way, so I totally get if it isn’t in the cards, but I bet there’s a few minor tweaks that you could do that’ll help. :)

Thanks! I checked out the prices and it's not terrrrrible but I'd have to make it an after the holidays purchase. I'd prefer to find someone basically giving one (probably of lesser quality but I've been lucky before) away on Craigslist or a swap meet though haha I'm sure I'll find one there if I actually try. Def looking for deals for the one you listed come this weekend though.

 

As for the speaker situation it's hard to see but I've got 30° risers under them so they're basically face on to my other out of view couch. I had them on the sides of the middle row in the past and it just doesn't sound as good as being freed up top. (I also don't usually have those box sets up there but I'm flattening a record with them lol)

ive moved my office back downstairs, and with it, the records and prints I had hanging in the other room.  still trying to get everything sorted out, still using a couple law books to help 'bookend' the records on the shelf until it fills up.  record player/stand is still not set up down here, debating on next to my desk or on top of the records.. leaning more to the first option at the moment

I'll play. Here's my junk  not as nice as some of these other set ups but check out that other dudes post about livin in So Cal. Please ignore the mess.

Also, I literally hate the pee color walls.  Another thing on my list I'll never get to
