Subwoofer size is dictated by the room, so you may want to include how big your room is.

Also do you want to build your own sub or do you just want to buy a built sub, if building your own sub, your at the right place, if not you may want to go to a different forum that concentrates on built subs like AVS forums

What do you want the subwoofer to do? Music, Home theater, earthquake simulations, What is your room size and average listening level in SPL? How low are the speakers you have now flat to In Hz?

Here some answers to your questions:

My livingroom is 30 square meters and i will use this set to listen music and watch movies.

I want to listen to music at a reasable volume and do not want to blow out my windows.

Maybe i am at the wrong forum, cause i will not build my own sub
But maybe can somebody give me some advice what to look for.

Thanks anyway,
