Hello I need to find a powered subwoofer that can fit under my cabinet. The dimensional constraint is that maximum height is 4.6". There is really no issue with other dimensions. My budget pref is approx $300. It would be paired with Polk TSI 200 sides. Thanks, R

There really is NO OTHER place you can consider putting a subwoofer?  Even if you could find one that can fit, I can't imagine it being a good performer...  Heck, a smallish 10" cube in a corner would, IMO, be a better option.

Slim and subwoofer normally don't go together.  With subs, bigger is generally better.  Also, putting a sub (or any speaker) in a cabinet is usually a bad idea.  If possible, sit the sub in a corner or behind a couch or chair.
