ok the sub model number is sw-p3600 bl. i looked it up and looks like almost any sub will be a upgrade haha. also whats your opinion of speaker wire gauge? my speakers are not run to far back probably like 20ft max im running 16gauge atm would if be beneficial to run 12gauge? or 10gauge? its not like its terribly expensive.

That Polk 505 is a big improvement over the Yamaha.It is probably the best bang for the buck sub in your price range.Compared to your Yamaha,the Polk has volume control,adjustable crossover,phase switch and auto on/off.The Polk should keep you happy for a while until your next upgrade.

 

As for wire,16ga will be fine.I Personally run 12ga for my fronts and side/rears.Normally would use 14 or 16 for rears but I am using an external amp to power them.

Look at Monoprice for speaker wire and interconnects.

 

Enjoy

now if i do find that kilspch for that low price would you recommend that over the polk?

If you get it for much less once the Polk hits it's first sale at $180 even if the klipsch is $150 and Polk is $200-220 I would still say it was worth the extra $50-70.

Were are your current speakers now,on desk,speakers stands,etc?

 

I would stick with the Polk if you still want to stay within your budget.
