For $200 or less the F12 is always a popular choice. The Bic RTR-EV1200 is a slight variation of the F12. It's available at rakuten.com via Beach Audio for $177.49. You also get 5% rewards points, which amounts to $8.85. The Jamo J-110 is also still available for $180 on ebay. I would avoid the JBL 550p sealed sub. From what Ive read it doesn't have any real extension advantage over these ported subs and you can bet being sealed it won't have near the output lower in range than the ported subs. I had the JBL sub150p from the older Studio line a few years ago and this 550p looks like it may be using the same 10" PolyPlas driver and 300w/500w amp. Granted the sub150p was ported, but to me it was a very poor performing subwoofer.
