I'm Daan from the Netherlands, I'm 17 years old and I plan to build a subwoofer to this design. I already have a good amplifier (rbh SA-200, 200W @ 4 Ohm which I'm gonna use for it.

I have a few questions.
First I have a question about the drivers. I went to and saw that Peerless also has an XXLS driver series. These drivers are pretty much the same as the XLS series, but they have a better excursion. Also these drivers are available in 4 Ohm versions, which I actually prefer because of my amplifier.

I was wondering, would the XXLS10 perform better than the XLS10 because of the better excursion? I checked the specs and they are pretty different in my eyes, but I'm just a learning noob.
Here are the specs

Whatever is the best choice, does anyone know where to get these drivers (inc passive radiator) in Holland?
I assume I can still use the same passive radiator.

Question two;
I already said I'm gonna use an external amp. Would it be smart to build the case without the extra enclosures for the sand and amplifier (only 218mm deep)? Or would that make it too light?

Any aswer to any of these questions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
