It is finally time to get rid of the Sony HTIB sub I've used for the last 5 years. I started out asking in the speaker forum, but my question is better put here. I have 2 problems however: 1) The new sub can't be any wider than 13" (maybe 14") . 2) I can't justify spending more than $200 or so to the boss. Here are the ones that have caught by eye.

1) VX-11 ($150)
2)Klipsch Sub-10($180)
3) ML Dynamo 300 ($130)
4) ES150p ($160)

Room is quite large (1700cuf), but I could care less if it booms, so long as the movie soundtracks are rich.

Just saw a recommendation for a JBL SUB150P http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882665157&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Home+Audio+Speakers-_-JBL+/+harman+kardon-_-82665157 altho that's a bit larger than you want.

Also for this Mordaunt Short http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/MORDCARN9CAL/MORDAUNT-SHORT-Carnival-9-10-100-Watt-Powered-Subwoofer-Calvados/1.html which is closer in size to your spec.

No experience with them, but seem like good candidates in your price range. Does the appearance also have WAF to contend with?

"I realize that somebody playing free music isn't as commercial as a hamburger stand. But is it because you can eat a hamburger and hold it in your hand and you can't do that with music? Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz

The JBL model is much too wide, unfortunately,

Never heard of the Mordaunt, - it certainly looks elegant and looking nice will definitely help in selling this
