New guy here who knows nothing.

Are there any quality subs that are designed to be placed underneath a coffee table? Obviously most of the subs discussed here are ones that are too tall to fit. I haven't measured it but I would imagine a height of 8 or 10 inches would probably fit.

Can't think of any worthy candidates myself. What are your requirements? Why is that the only location? Sub performance can be very dependent on location in your room in any case. How about a cylinder sub if floor space is an issue? Some subs can do dual duty as a table, too...

Paradigm Reference MilleniaSub. Not a heavy hitter below 30hz, but seems to have decent bass on up. Here are some measurements.

But you might not like the price.

you can lay down a cylinder sub from svs horizontally i have the pc13u which is 42" tall and 16" wide. reverse those of course if using horizontal configureation. it is 1700.00 though.

He's only got about 10" vertical height though. He'd need SVS to come out with a cylinder sub that has an 8" driver to fit in that space. If there was 16" of vertical room, then there are also 12" sealed subs that would probably fit in that space.

The Sunfire Subwoofers have some models that would work.

This Pinnacle sub might do....worth a look IMO. It's pretty small, but can get into low 30 hz
range. (or so claimed)

Guaranteed to kick the ass of anything else that size. Not a dealer, just a Danley fanboy.

Looks awesome but that'd be one big coffee table to fit underneath! What do those go for?
