you will have to sacrifice bass extension if you want house shaking SPL in such a small box. Try 2*B&C 12TBX100 in 60L with a 300cm^2 port tuned to 43Hz. That will do 123dB down to 40Hz. here is a hornresp record:

there is also the BG100 if budget isn't an issue. In the US the lab12 may also be worth considering.

I would move up to an 18" for 3ft with a couple passive radiators per driver tuned low.

Something like this or the Lavoce equivalents.
B&C 18TBW100-4 18" Professional Subwoofer 4 Ohm

Also more expensive options if you wanted even more output.

This will get you the best of both worlds.
