Budget? SPL and extension goals? Size of box is more to do with the specific driver....

We also need to know what you are listening to?

Is it 10% music 90% Movies or the other way around? And what mains/receiver do you have.

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

Hi

listening is 70% movies 25% videogames and 5% music

my main receiver is an Anthem MRX300 but the sub will be powered by 2 X Behringer EP4000 that i have and minidsp 2X4 balanced

guess what i would like to achieve is clean deep tight bass

Thanks for your help

Is there a particular reason to limit the driver to 12 inches? How large is your room (is the room sealed or open to other space?).

Believe the Stereo Integrity HST-12 would be a good choice and is just in your budget in any case.
