I would say it depends on the selected drivers

If you really want to play .... maybe a 3" Tangband with 8"-10"-12" woofer could give you some fun and listening pleasure

Come to think of it .... being english you should be able to get the 12" Mivoc AW 3000 .... its nice and bassy and it will be "easy" to make xo with a TB 3" fullrange

Download WinISD and play with it.

http://www.linearteam.dk/default.aspx?pageid=winisd

It's free, and it's simple to use.

Enter the thiele-small parameters of any driver you are considering using and you can play with box size and tuning and see what happens with the overall frequency response of the driver/enclosure combination.

You'll see right away why there is no "generic tuning frequency" that makes sense, but it depends totally on the parameters of the driver.

when you get into it you'll see that there is usually a tradeoff between "lower bass" (boomy) and "tighter bass" for a given driver. Also between bass response and size. That's why there is not one right answer, even for a single driver. It depends on the intended use and the listener's preference.
