Default Passive sub for DDX320v2

Can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable passive subwoofer to run off the Hifimediy DDX320v2 amplifier? It's to pair with a set of Pioneer SP-BS22-LR bookshelf speakers. Just for listening to music in my bedroom.

I live in Australia but I am comfortable importing things from the states.

The DDX320v2 outputs 150W at 4Ohms and has an adjustable crossover from 80Hz upwards. The Pioneer speakers' range is 53Hz up.

Thanks.

This kit looks like it might do the job, cheaper to ship from the states than an assembled sub too I'd bet.

90dB sensitivity should help with the lower power levels I'll be driving it at, the smaller diameter kits were 82-85dB
Dayton Audio 15" DVC Subwoofer and Cabinet Bundle

So does anyone have any alternatives or input?

[edit] Parts Express want $200 for shipping, so that rules that out. Could probably try a shipping forwarder but it will still be expensive.

You can buy the driver (or buy in AU) and build the cabinet/kit DIY.
Dayton Audio DVC385-88 15" DVC Series Subwoofer
Have in mind that's a DVC.
In your amp you have (woofer):
8ohm-80W, 35V
4ohm-160W, 35V

The other next idea for your DIY@AU:
Buy a 10" Monacor SPH-250CTC with 93dB sensitivity or any other driver in AU, Wavecor, SS, Seas etc. for a fair price. ($225.00 each today)
Soundlabs Group 10in. SPH-250CTC 2 x 8 Ohm
This driver works very well in 80L cabinets sealed or BR. In a sealed it works great also with -10dB@25Hz (Qtc = 0.505).

Yes I could build a cabinet myself but this was exactly what I wanted to avoid, I dont have the skills or tools to cut a cabinet accurately enough so I'd have to get one CNCd or something which will probably cost just as much as getting the aforementioned one shipped from the USA.

Any reason you are suggesting those drivers? Are you just really excited about them?
