Not much I would think. You'll change the peak and the f-equal a bit, but not in a big way.
John usually says that baffle surface area affects dynamics and the long dimension affects the low end roll-off.

The thing that immediately hits you about a speaker with this size baffle and this much cone area is not huge bass, but huge scale and ease of presentation. It sounds big, and it sounds effortless, real. A lot of fun.

I may have details somewhere, but I'll see if I can get John to chime in.
