Is this subwoofer for home use or for your use in a car?

For dubstep, a lower limit of 30 Hz should be fine. Very few tunes, even dubstep, go anywhere below that.

As important as the cutoff frequency is the subwoofer's efficiency. A subwoofer that hits 30 Hz is useless if it can't do that at any decent volume.

The alignment (combination of driver and box design) will determine the cutoff frequency and how loud the subwoofer can get.
