New Subwoofer Help

So in the next few months, im going to be getting my first car (Jeep) and i will be taking my sub from my house out and it will go into my car. however that leaves me with no more boom for my PC and that makes me sad

So anyway, currently i have a 10" 750W car sub in my room hooked up to my PC. i use my PC for music, makeing videos, and of course, gaming. what size sub do you guys recommend? 10" or 12" i like that nice low boom from games, but from a music and video making standpoint, a 10" might be better?

What's you're price range and what speakers is it mating with? I assume it's a powered design only?

I have a Paradigm, Definitive and Infinity powered subs. But REL has specialized in nothing but subs and has a very wide range if depth and if sound matter then the best of the best are still JL Audio and Velodyne !

JL came from car audio and only does subs for home. They along with Focal are the best of the best in car audio.....not cheap !


That's 24k worth of bottom baby !

lol idk... im thinking the AA 10" 600W one. i cant fina any reviews on the 12" one. all the reviews on the 10" are pretty damn good. i dont need the best quality, but i do want decent clean sound. also being that the 12" is down facing and ported down, id imagine that it will sound muffed on carpet.

EDIT so 10" it is.

my current is a 10" 750W but im only pushing in at max 200W so this one will be better and louder. especially since the independance is correct. lol mine is an 4ohm and 6ohms is going in. i have it bridged between 2 75W 6ohm channels. not the best setup, but because it was low wattage, it dident hurt anything. now im going to need to buy an amp for my car sub lol. hopefully i wont need a head unit.
