I put together an EP2500 amplifier, DIY Cable Tempest-X 15" sub and a DIY sealed 6.2cu.ft. box for $520.
I like it.
There are many options.

How much room do you have?(how big can enclosure be?)
How big and what are the dimensions of your room?

Hi EAGLES,
My room (W X D X H) = 3m x 6,3m x 3.3m
I think the sub with enclosure medium size match my room, I love deep bass but excellent resolution for both music and cinema. There are many choice such as: RL-P18 SoundSplinter, IXL-18.2.2 March5Audio, Tempest-X ExodusAudio..etc and I am newbie, I don't know which according to me, please advice me, thank

That is a decent sized room...any of those drivers with enough power will be nice.
The tempest-X being the least expensive is nice...the other two are beasts.
If you can stretch for those another two options would be the CSS SDX-15 and the DIY Cable 18" Maelstrom-X.

Almost any good driver in a properly designed enclosure for HT will also excel at music.


Will you be building your own enclosure?

When you have the space, a large and low tuned ported subwoofer using a capable driver will yield the most balanced performance vs other alignments when the goals are deep extension, linear frequency response, and clean headroom.

Yup, my wrist was in a cast when Ibuilt my sealed and it is just healing really now...so soon I will be building a ~13cu ft ported enclosure for the tempest-x.
