What about Yamaha DXS18

I'll echo the suggestion to look at the Yamaha DXS18.  We got one for our portable church a few months back and it is very, very impressive.  I've used JBL PRX and QSC KW subs (to compare a couple others in that market segment) and I like the Yamaha sub better than either of those other options.   We use just one in a 600+ seat school auditorium each week and it easily fills the room.  If we didn't have to set up and tear down each week, I'd love to add a second one just for the added displacement.

We also went with the Yamaha DSR112's for tops, partly based on multiple posts here discussing how good they are.  They are arguably the best powered speakers in the segment, and the size, weight, and output all fit our needs very well.
 
The Yamaha stuff doesn't get as much press as the more common names, but they can easily keep up with, and even outperform, the more common offerings that are widely used nowadays.

The 812's are a bit lighter/smaller than the 815's - I'm not sure if you've already considered them.

Both should also match up great with your srx728's if you need more than a pair of 18" subs, but want to leave the rest of the 'big rig' at home.

Does the FBT X SUB 18SA fit the bill at all? I'm looking at replacing my set of 4 RCF ESW1018's (I never use all 4 at once!) and am toying with these as a much easier to shift alternative. I had the pleasure of mixing on an FBT Muse line array rig a couple of weeks ago and had previously dismissive of the brand, but the experience really changed my mind and i'm looking in to the brand further.
Might be worth a listen? I'd certainly be up for hearing more people's thoughts on them. There appears to be an FBT USA. This link is to the main website though;

I share your experience with the Muse 210LA.  I have not heard the x-sub.  We should probably get a demo in.  Right now using Meyer 650R2's we already had.
