How do you think these would work as either a woofer or subwoofer in a home enviornment. I just hate to see them sitting there.

Should work fine as a woofer... they would be a bit challenged to get into subwoofer territory... if you have lots maybe a pr of push-push, push-pull ML-TL woofers (you might have to worry about the neo magnets heating up in this arrangement -- but the line for 4 woofers in this config would be the same size as if you were using only 1 (ie this config uses 4 woofers per side)

Might be better to play it safe, and just build a push-push pair (box size will double over above, but the magnets would be exposed to cooling air and you'd move the same amount of air.
