looking at a Klipsch for my garage HT

The only room in my house big enough to fit everyone in for movie nights is my garage I want to add some more low-end punch to the equation but not sure what to go for.

Garage is 28w x 22 d with 10' ceilings, insulated walls and ceiling, garage door is insulated and not much in garage except a couple cabinets/couches/chairs and my corner cabinet for the HT stuff. All I hav now for low end is a couple older JBL towers with 10" drivers hung on either side of my 135" elite. On a slow night we have maybe 5-6 people watchin a movie and a good night 30+ people with the garage door open.

The sub I am lookin for is what bestest buy labels the 'sub-10'..a 420w 10inch sub. Will this sub be worth the $$ and be able to fill this room? or should roll my $$ into DIY project and bump up to a 12"? I am a little tight for space in my corner cabinet I built in...I only have about 19" square to work with but can go 3' verticle . The wife has capped my project at around $400.00

THanks for any replies

I don't think a 10" sub in a space that large is going to do much. For $400 you could get into some decent DIY projects. An EP1500 amp with a Dayton Reference 15" would put you right at your budget before you build the enclosure. Something ported near 20hz otta do nicely Maybe there could be some negotiating with the authorities?

Out of curiosity, what is a 135" elite?

Looks like a good start for me, I'm not sure I have enough room under the cabinet to stuff a ported 15 tho. Ill have to play around with the specs and search the DIY forums...
