A forum leader gave me good advice a couple of years ago.

"Buy a quality sub, put it in a sealed-box and be done with it."

I'm still thanking the guy.

Bought a CCS 12" (was around $250). At 46lb - plus the 1" mdf sealed box is probably 100lbs total.

(2) Bought this amp on sale also. I tried to dial it in myself, that didn't work at all and simply used the LFE input [vs.the rca's] and the whole house stated shaking. Since then,it is very easy to adjust with the AVR in increments of 10hz (30hx. 40hz, 50hz, 60hz, etc). The AVR blended the bass with the mains quite nicely. My mains are strong and it is now set at 60hz,

So don't over think it, just buy good-stuff.

Sealed is boring. If the speaker moves, then it distorts. Also, the voicecoil does not get cool air from outside the enclosure unless you invert the driver. Horn or bandpass for me!
