This speaker seems to be an unusual one.  According to it's write up, it is designed for ultra low distortion bass.  It is quite inefficient, yet still requires a large volume box - which is unusual.   Its efficiency bandwidth product (Fs / Qes) is around 37, which is quite low, and implies that the speaker will work best in a sealed box or a 4th order bandpass box.

The Housewrecker (I think) is a 6th order bandpass box, but could be turned into a 4th order bandpass by sealing up the vents in the lower part of the box (not the port, the vents).

So, I'd guess that it could be made to sound good in a Housewrecker, but it might take a little work.  What are you trying to accomplish?  Why this speaker?
