Default integrating sub with 206 blh(Dallas II) Help!

greetings fellas, well I'm thinking of trying a sub with my blh's and was wondering what thee best approach to acheiving this is?The horns apparently go down to 50hz and they do everything above that nicely but I do miss a bit of warmth underneath it.sop what I want to know is stuff like passive vs active, sealed, ported, what about sensitivity and speed etc. Basicallly I need a crash course on it so I'm not wasting my time. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

cheers fergs

Don't even consider passive for half a second.

As for sealed vs vented, ignore the people saying sealed is 'faster' or vented is 'boomy' as it's just their specific implementation they find like that.

All I can say is that with horns you will need a decent sized and capable subwoofer to keep up. Absolute minimum of a 12 inch driver in a vented box.

Your budget and space constraints will be the driving factors.
