Planning on using a plate amp? It might be tricky to get a woofer made for a sealed box that small do go down far enough without EQ.

Does it have to be sealed?

For sealed (no eq), you'd want a Qts of ~0.6, and a low Fs. Low Vas would also be good.

As a start,

What you need to do now is download winISD Pro, read through the Help file on how to input driver parameters, then start modelling the potential drivers. You might find some need lots of eq to get low (lower Qts ones), but some go low enough on their own, but need larger boxes (higher Qts).

Have a play around, find a size-performance ratio you like the look of, then build it.
