Need some help with Subs

What should I buy for less than $200 that will provide lots of bass without sacrificing too much quality, but not too muddy or distorted; just loud enough to feel? I have literally no experience with subs or anything of the sort and I have a receiver and speakers but just need a better bass output in a 14w x 14l x 8h room. Any help is appreciated than you.

Dayton Sub1500 is pretty decent for the money.

That's probably your best bet. You could certainly do better with a bigger budget.

If you want to go new the SUB-1500 might be your only legitimate option. I'm very familiar with the SUB-1200 and for the money it's a great value. I suspect the SUB-1500 would be more of the same.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite
