Hi guys, I currently have a Polk Audio PSW10 I picked up on clearance from Best Buy for $51.29. Needless to say I need a subwoofer with a little more oomph. I know I can't afford high end and I'm browsing e-Bay as we speak and my local Craigslist but do you guys have any thoughts on a specific one? I'm looking to spend $200 max and I don't care if it's used or not. I found a 10 inch 55watt Klipsch for $169.99, It's a KSW10 or something along those lines.

A BIC F12 subwoofer will be better than the 55 watt Klipsch KSW-10 sub for $13 more.

The list that was provided above will also be helpful.

The JBL pretty much measures according to specs - I would put it on a short list

Are you looking to use it for music or movies?

Check out the JBL ES250P. The JBL ES subwoofers perform well for movies and can handle some music too. I would take a look at one of those on amazon for $199. Excellent deal for under 200.
