Default 12" driver recommendations for TL sub??

Trying to get the ball rolling on a new project here. Yes, it will be a large enclosure, shooting for 120-150 liters hopefully (overall, not the line volume). Anyone have any suggestions of a nice 12" driver in the $100-$200 range suitable or that has worked well for you in a TL sub? Just starting to try to get some ideas together here, haven't even started on the mathcad.

The enclosure will be very similar to this, a stand alone 12" TL sub in a stereo pair that my sats will sit atop:


I am looking for a very low Fs driver, I am shooting for extension here----20Hz F10 minimum in room. The subs will be crossed at 100Hz, music only.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks, Joel

I used two Visaton W300 4ohm in isobaric setup for a 2.5 meter strait TL subwoofer (~120 liters) and is working just fine. I am using isobaric because of reduced Vas and for doing mechanical sum of L and R channels.
Anyway, Visatons are good and relatively cheap. See here (sorry bcose is in romanian):
