Not the best driver for a 50 watt amp, being very low sensitivity. I would go with a ported box, 0.5 ft3 internal volume with a 2" x 15" port (32hz). A 12" x 12.5" x 8.5" box built out of 1/2" wood (1/2" ply works well) will get you there. You can use something like this PVC elbow to make the port length fit

Here's the free air response, in cab should get a large gain down low.
