    What do you plan on doing with this woofer? With only 5mm Xmax it's not going to make the greatest subwoofer, but the Fs is good for that application.

    Yes, I am thinking about a small subwoofer...
    It's a woofer I could easely buy here, and it's also cheap...
    What would happen with a low xMax?

    Jack.....
    the woofer I am speaking about is the HS250 by CIARE.

    I was thinking to build a small sealed subwoofer, using a 100W amp. It will be used 100% for music in my small bedroom.

    Do you think I will get satisfying results or should I look at other woofers?

    Sealed won't get you much deep bass, Qts is really too low. Best you can hope for is an F3 of ~57Hz unless the amp has some sort of boost...which many do. Vented looks better, 2 ft^3 tuned around 30z with a 3" x 8" long port looks decent for a music-only system.
