well i have a 14 cubic foot box that i made a while ago for two 18's and never used it. but now i would like to use it for my home theater. what would be a good sub for this box, looking to spend no more than like $125 would the dayton dcs 450-4 work http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=295-475 i will close up one of the cut outs because it's made for two subs.

that box is too large for just one sub, unless you put the sup on like 25% of rated rms

The box is ported, people use big boxes for one sub alot for home theather to get the sub to play lower and be more efficient. just look at home theather shack Ported Subwoofer Build Projects at Home Theater Forum and Systems - HomeTheaterShack.com (http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/ported-subwoofer-build-projects/)
