well you are in for a pleasant surprise with most anything you purchase then...
I would however clearly steer you beyond your stated budget to at least a BIC F12 type sub. It is about $190 on amazon and will be infinitely better than the AIWA sub. I owned one of those AIWA pieces of ......
It was my second home subwoofer. My first piece of junk sub I bought in a pawn shop. It was a passive 6" subwoofer. So the AIWA eight or ten I had was pretty cool to me --- at the time.
In the world of ID or commercial subwoofers you have to spend about $200 minimum to get anything worthwhile. Anything you buy below that price point just is just made with too cheap of components/amps to be worth even purchasing for all but the absolute lowest of expectations or needs.
Since you are happy with the AIWA if you bought something like this you'd probably initially think you'd died and gone to heaven
that is until you heard a deeper frequency producing, more expensive subwoofer offering.
