If the 5010 has dual sub EQ, Id not worry about the X4000. XT32 and dual sub eq did a great job with dual VTF15's IMO.

I went thru this recently, and after the research I decided to go with a second VTF15h.

After running Audyssey XT32 with dual sub eq, this thing sounds great. Id just get a second ULS-15.

First off, I wont buy another 12" sub. So now its simple, if you have the room, get a VTF15h, if you dont get the ULS15.

I always run Audyssey with my sub gain set to where the AVR ends up with a -5db target for level. I then always boost inside the AVR menu to 0.0, because I run my sub 5db hot.
