What would be the better choice

I am trying to decide between which sub to build. I will be getting the inuke1000 for sure, the 1.5 cu ft diysoundgroup sub box for sure and only 1 (wife issues).

Should I go with the infinity 12" that some people have built or the Ultimax 10? What would be better?

It would be in a 18x13 ft room with 9ft ceilings and open to 1 side. Essentially used for everyday tv watching, music and maybe a movie. No crazy bass is needed as I already have a home theatre in the basement.

Just want the best sub for that box and my room.

Thanks!

I'd go dual opposed infinity in single box if budget is the consideration, otherwise dual opposed um12 =]

Can't do a bigger box size than that though.

1.5cuft is 14x14x14, mounting depth of UM-12 is 6.22inches.
It will be tight but it should work.

You will need two 1000dsp's or one 3000dsp though. One will be underpowered by ~66%, or ~3.3db

Is that with the infinity dual opposed or a single um12 in a small box?
