Best subwoofer for under $200

What is the best deal on a powered sub for under $200?

Best deal would be building one, imo. Honestly, I don't think I can suggest a GOOD powered sub for under $300. But if you build one, you can pick up something like an old model shiva for under $100 and get a plate amp for $100. Then spend $30 over your limit to get good building supplies. I think you will be much much much more happier with the output than any pre-made powered sub setup.

While the Daytons are the king of the Cheap subs and offer great value. Keep in mind you get what you pay for. My bare minimum recommendation for an entry level sub would be the HSU STF1.

And that is why I stated I could not recommend any good sub for under $300

You are entitled to your opinion, but I strongly disagree with you.

Both JBL Northridge subs are widely respected and regarded. Many people consider them to be right below SVS and HSU. Both are below $300.

Yeah, it is my opinion that I couldn't find a good subwoofer for under $300. But some people's tastes are different. With that said, the cheapest I've seen the 10" version of the JBL Northridge sub is $220 and the 12" version for $250. For that price I still think you could build yourself a killer sub/amp combo

Like the others have said, there really isn't much to offer in that price range. You could probably try and pick up a Paradigm PDR-10 on Ebay for roughly 200.
