    Have him bring just a sub driver and build your own box with it. There are a number of folks on the DIY forum that would help you with design. An Adire Audio Tempest will make a great sub in the right size cabinet. Also, the Tempest will fit within your weight limit.

    My sub, a Sony SA-WM20, weighs 10 kg, or 22lb 1oz. I bought it for $100 from Circuit City, undiscounted. It's not a great sub, but I think it's ok for the price. I had never thought of its light weight as being an advantage. It's not very big: 270 x 325 x 385 mm, or 10 3/4 x 12 7/8 x 15 1/4 in.
