There is a 10" on sale from a company and I was thinking about getting it. Would a single 10" be able to get that low with some authority or should I only consider the 12" model. The sub I am looking at is a TC-1000.

Depends on the enclosure and amp you use with it. But for a finished example, the 10" SVS PB10 can get down to 20Hz and is quite popular around here.

I modeled both the TC-1000 10" and 12" SVC models in Unibox. The 10" in an 85L (3 cf) tuned to 16 hz and powered by a 500w can reach 104db. In room and corner loaded, that value would rise quite a bit. The 12" model in a 120L (4.2 cf) tuned to 16 hz and powered by a 500w can reach 110db. If you can afford the space, go with the 12. If not, I don't think the 10 will disappoint you. -Robert

With most 10's its not worth trying to get 20Hz output. You'd sacrifice too much SPL. I didn't model the TC-1000, but the numbers look pretty good and Xmax is a whopping 24mm each way! So chances are it will work. But note that there are some good 12 inch woofers that have the same or more displacement for very reasonable prices. Wouldn't take a much bigger box - 85 liters is certainly big enough for a vented 12" woofer. Take, for example, the Ascendant Audio Assassin 12". Similar displacement for $90. If you're getting a price close to this, then go ahead and jump on the TC-1000 (and tell us where you got it!). Otherwise you might consider saving some money on a 12.

Also, I'd consider buying one of the used SVS woofers now that people are upgrading from the ISD and the old Plus woofers.

This company, SoundSplinter, uses wholesale TC Sounds drivers and cost less. Don't be scared by their web-page, they know what they're doing. I second the 12" driver recommendation, maybe even a 15"? Posted Image The RL12 would work nicely.
