If you can provide a link to the driver data it makes the job easier.

My understanding is that most PRO drivers make relatively poor sub-woofers for home use

That's bass guitar speaker. I wouldn't think it would make much of a subwoofer even if you are planning to use it in a car.

It may indeed work out OK....Heres' the Thiele Smalls.
fs=35Hz
Qes=.47
Qms=5.36
Qts=.43
Xmax=6.2mm
EBP=75
Sens. 92Db
...40-2K Hz.
____________________Quick, who can crunch the numbers the fastest. The EBP puts it in the ported camp, but that Mechanical at 5.36??

Low Xmax, high Fs and 33 gram cone. Not your average subwoofer.

50 litre vented will give good response down to ~40Hz but not much power handling.

The amount of power from the amp it takes to drive the speaker to it's linear limits (Xmax). In this case, about 80 watts.
