Default Low hz, budget subwoofer ??????

I am looking for a low cost, under $200 subwoofer that is good at low notes, I am talking the 18-35hz range. My floor speakers can knock stuff off the shelves between 40-100hz but they cant hit 20hz at all. So I need a sub to fill in that area. So far I think a rockford fosgate p2 15" may work but what do you guys think? I'm not looking for crazy loud just good low response.

A P2D215 will work if you don't mind a 10 cu.ft. box tuned to 15 hz.

Yeah, a T/S max flat alignment is ~20 ft^3 and TH ~15 ft^3 net.

Everything's relative, these cabs are right at 20 ft^3 net (I'm 5'9") and so far still the smallest I've ever built for my main system:

I could maybe fit a 10 cu.ft box but can't be anything bigger, I had a 5.5 cu. ft in here once and it was an eye soar because it sits right under my projector screen. Thats where it sounded best.

For under $200 a CSS TRIO12 in 5 cu.ft. tuned to 20 hz powered by a Bash 300 watt amp would match the output of the P2D215.

think sonotube sub... easy to get big volumes in an unobtrusive column... EBS alignment gives lots of LOW bass output

Hi, Try to beat the performance of a ~7 ft tall stuffed T-TQWT
that if XO:ed low enough can be located anywhere in a room
for to achieve max SQ as such a design is very insensitive for
boundary interactions:
