Is the IB385-8 okay for home theater?

I found a couple of the Dayton Audio IB385-8 15" Infinite Baffle Subwoofer on Craigslist, $75 each. Are these okay for a home theater subwoofer? If I get them, do I just do WinISD as usual? I saw lots of folks putting them in walls as subs, but I didn't see a lot of subs on the floor. Does anyone have the measure measurements of an enclosure?

Thanks.

edit: I tried to delete but couldn't.

Sony STR-D810, Polk Tsi300, CSI 2 Series II, no good sub yet.

Re: Is the IB385-8 okay for home theater?

That is a big enclosure it looks like. Dayton said 20ft^3 box, vented. I had to read what Infinite Baffle was. I thought it was a brand. But after reading, I can't put them in a wall or attic.

OPTIMUM CABINET SIZE *

Sealed Volume 8.61 ft.
Sealed F3 30 Hz
Vented Volume 19.39 ft.
Vented F3 15 Hz
* Enclosure volume/F3s based on BassBox "optimum" calculations
