which is overall better for a smaller room?
The A3-250 should outperform it.
Even though its a smaller sub, its a better driver. It has more xmax than the 12" which makes up for the loss in cone area, and it has 100w more power going towards it.
If it were available when i bought my a2-300 id probably have bought it. Smaller footprint, at least equivalent performance, likely to be better sound quality due to the improved driver design.
