Default Sub recommendations for DQ10's

I would like to build a sub to go with my recently rebuilt Dahlquist DQ10's.
My research suggests that the DQ's need to be crossed at 50hz .

The sub would be primarily for music so I'm thinking sealed and around 12" maybe a 15" but I'm going for accuracy, with a large plate amp to drive it.

Room size is 14 wide by 24 long.

Budget is not a real issue as I want to use the best quality
( with in reason ofcoarse!!)

What are some suggestions??

Rythmik DS-12 servo.
Very musical, and should do great at that cx point.

You may even want to consider the 15" with that size room.

The Rythmik is one of my top choices!!
I like the "servo" idea although I have read that it is not a true accelerometer but a motion sensor.
I'm not sure what the differences are!!

My home theatre set up has 3 12"shivas in sealed 82litre boxes
1 for the LFE and 2 to bi-amp on the front mains, all driven with Leach superamps

Are there any other great diy subs out there?

I am sure you can find alot of good designs out there.
Before the Rythmik, I have built subs using the TitanicIII, Adire Shiva, Dayton DVC-12,RS HF 12 and an old HSU offered driver.
For SQ, the Rythmik wins hands down.
