Default Dumber Is Better (DIB), LMAO it worked

I am not telling you what dumb idea I tried out on the 5.6 cabinet until I also try it with a port, but it seems to have worked.
The response between 80Hz and 120Hz seems better

EDIT: It is only subtle really, but I am hoping once I add the port it will be more significant

tune to 30hz (or 27hz), it sounds better than tuning above.

I haven't tuned anything yet, but when I get my hands on some pipe I will be sure to try that out

Yeah. I need to actually listen to it to see what sounds better.
Not sure what to expect
