Anytime you try to shrink the size of a sub enclosure, you start sacrificing performance per dollar, so shrinking and enclosure and budget is usually a recipe for disaster.

At 14x16x14 the polk is already on the lowend of medium sized. The Aperion Bravus 8D is 13.5x12x12 which is about as small as I'd try to go if you're still interested in a serious subwoofer. It rings up at $499 however (note, I have 2 of these subs, let me know if you want more info.)

You can also consider a taller enclosure with a small footprint. The HSU stf-1 is an example of such a sube with an 11x16 footprint, but a 19 tall enclosure: http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/stf-1.html

On the invisible side, you can try for a sub designed to fit under a coffee table or tall sofa like this one from parts express: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=302-047

Note, I haven't heard it and in no way am endorsing it from a performance perspective, only an aesthetics perspective.
