underatted subs

So i basicelly am a rare person to return a the energy classics and i kept only 2 rti4 to try and build a stronger ht.

My sub budget is around 200:

i live in Canada so Bic at amazon is like 400 , and Dayton 300

here are my choices so far looked over kijiji:

Paradigm PDR 10 V3 (made in Canada) - used 150 $
Martin Logan Dynamo 300 8 inch - used 100$
Mirage S10- used 150$
Polk audio Sw10 new 140

nobody likes polk audio on this site but i saw some good reviews for it , my room is size small so might do the job i suppose...

im leasing towards mirage s10 however ...not too many options...

I just bought a new Mirage S10 and it's a great sub. Goes deep and definitely has sufficient output for a small room.

Stay away from the Polk. I had one of their low end subs, they're not good.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Epson 5030UB, 100" Carada Criterion with Classic Cinema White, Denon AVR 1713, Energy V-5.1s and a V-5.2C , NHT SuperZeros, Mirage Omni S10, Oppo 103D. Currently boxed up: Klipsch SW-450, NHT Absolute Center, Energy V-Mini-C

Under-rated usually means, "things that are rated too low."

I think you mean it differently, like "things that are rated under other things" ?

I see tons of posts about Polk speakers.
But most of the speaker manufacturers deliver low value in their subs.

I actually own the $100 Polk sub for a little TV-soundbar setup. Does what it needs to, for casual viewing.

I'd suggest you:

From your list, I would lean towards the Mirage
