Well when you are mounting it to a wall I would imagine the cubic feet required for a subwoofer gets complicated (and heavy). The diy floor juke boxes I have seen have a 12 or 15 built into the middle but they are the size of a washing machine.
You might to look at every small box driver out there (parts express is a place to start) but you will likely need over .5cf of enclosure maybe with fiberglass you can get the weight down bit it will still take up some space. Go model some sub drivers and see what you come out with. Think of power and the size of the enclosure to be a balancing factor. Getting "bass" out of a small space is non-trivial.
Make extend the enclosure to the floor? What sort of volume do you have to work with inside the enclosure?
