Default Cabinet depth effects

I have a hypothetical...

Is there any downside to a "deep" cabinet that is relatively short? Or a "Tall" cabinet that relatively shallow?

Assuming the baffle is the same width in both of those scenarios, is one preferred over the other?

Remember that cabinet depth can start to colour the lower midrange. Sound can be transmited through the cone and the basket. Stuff you don't want. The caution is that as you approach 1/4 wavelength of a tone especially in the lower midrange. What you get is cabinet dimensions may actually support or even amplify the unwanted tones.

I probably gave more questions than answers but it's a start.
