Hey, welcome to the forums. A couple questions just to help you get the best recommendations.

Do you have a budget in mind?
How loud do you like to listen (moderate, moderate-loud, loud, very loud)
How large is your room? And are their any large openings in it to other parts of the house?

i think my room size is about 10x13

i only have front tower speakers as of now. some brand called polyway (MADE IN USA Apparently)

the above setup of mine is i think atleast 12 years old i guess.

i was looking at a few sub-woofers. budget about 20-30k
Polk Audio - PSW10
Polk Audio - HTS10
Yamaha NS-SW300

out of budget
Q acoustic qb12
