Default looking for Sub driver

I am looking for a 8" or 10" sub driver for a small sub to augment a pair of fostex fullragers in a very small computer room. Any suggestion? Could I drive something like that with 30 watts?

thanks
Kris

Are you thinking of using a plate amp or simply adding it to the mix? I think a small plate amp might be in order.

Also, there is quite a difference between an 8" and a 10" so you might wish to decide first before we make suggestions. The 8" will allow for a smaller box (on average) while the 10 will give you more umph!

EDIT: If it's for a small room, the 8" ought to be enough. Have you looked at anything so far?

This TB unit is nice and on sale. I have a pair. I like.

Or the Apex Jr. unit part way down the page is good also for the price.

I suggest you pick up the current JBL GTO series 8 inch sub driver for cars. In a small ported box the performance is great. It's not expensive either and doesn't require a load of power. A cheap plate amp from Apex Jr would see the job done.

Well the thing is I am running the fostexs off a Teac AL700P three channel amp. I am not looking for huge slam just some bass augmentation. The room is very small and I sit about 4ft from the speakers. Very nearfield. I would like to run it off the tird channel of the amp if possible. I was looking at a dayton 8" in a sealed box.
