Quick subwoofer opinion

I want to add a small sub to my computer set up. Plan on just using RCA splitters off my Schiit Modi Uber 2 for the signal, running presonus Eris 5 xt studio monitors as my speakers, fed with a toslink and feeding the speakers or some BJC RCA interconnects. Use is about 50/50 music and gaming. What sub 300 dollar sub preferably around an 8 inch, but open to a 6 or a 10 for the right price/performance. I haven't been all that active around here these passed few years and don't know what's well like within my parameters, maybe a psw 111?
HT/2channel:
AVR: Yamaha RX-V 765
Fronts: Polk RTiA3
sub: Polk PSW110(will add 2x PSW 505)
Center: CS13
surrounds:Polk RTi4( also have some def tech pro Mon. 800s, may end up her or expanding this to 7 channel.)
TV: samsung 40
The real 2 Channel(work in progress):
Pre:HK 3490
Amp:Parasound 1200 MK II
Sub:RBH 1010-SEP
Speakers: Monitor 5A peerless
Headphones:

    The psw111 would fill in the bottom nicely in a nearfield set-up. Of course it won't plunge to the deepest depths. I had one for a spell in a bedroom system. Should be able to find a used one for a Benjamin or so.

    Another option would be the HSU STF-1 or STF-2

    Hey @seabeerob213 where are you stationed these days? Do you have to buy new? Lots of great used options but not much new...

    Gonna give this a shot, there was an Amazon warehouse deal for open box like new condition for 163.99 figured that was affordable enough and it's small enough to give it a shot, if I don't like it for that, maybe pair it with a sound bar for the bedroom TV or offload it on the local sale page. Gonna keep my eyes open for something nicer or better, but figured I'd give this a shot. I k ow their higher end stuff is polarizing, saw a lot of love and a lot of hate, so I took a gamble cause of the price.

    I'm legitimately curious how that would compare to the Sunfire XTATM265. I didn't even know anyone else made a 6.5" sub with a passive radiator.

    To be fair, it's not a 6.5 with a passive radiator, its a 6.5 with 2 passive radiators 😂
