a sub doesn't need to be cranked up or give you a club feeling. it's meant to play the frequencies your main speakers can't push out. if your speakers only play down to 55hz, it just needs to cover let's say 30-80hz (crossing over the main speakers at 80). it doesn't need to do this particularly loud or earth shaking. just like your monitors don't have to be particularly loud. but getting the sub volume right is not as easy and you need a bunch of measurements to set it right
