    Popping and bottoming out is starting to occur. I love the DIY cabinet I built for it and we had some great days, but I need to replace the driver. Any suggestions, not too expensive up to 200.00 is can be afforded.

    Everybody seems to love the Dayton 10" sub... you can pick one up for $129 at partsexpress.com I'm going to pick one up sometime in the near future myself.

    I can vouch for the dayton. Don't see how you do better at the price point.

    Another shout out for the Dayton. It's a steal for the money. Performance far exceeds the price.

    We need to know the cabinet's internal volume. Ported or sealed? If ported, what is the port diameter and length?

    My bad.... thought he was talking about replacing the whole subwoofer and after re-reading it appears he is looking to replace the driver only.

    (I guess that seems more logical considering his price limit of $200 --I'm still getting a Dayton 10" subwoofer though!)
