Default Question about cubic feet

Hi All
i have a few sets of plans i'm looking at colossus(fane),ciare,br 115,b&c sub 15
ok.... so is it better to go with the smaller or bigger suggested
volume i want a small foot print with tight punch will it hurt the driver over time ??
they will be ported or refelex ...... witch is better also ???

and i'm bored sitting around have a kappa pro lf-2 15

Google says: 120L ported to 50Hz works well.

You can make it side, up or down firing, if it fits in 400mm then 400x400x800cm, narrow enough footprint? Have the port at the bottom for better half-space action, a slot-type port even so things are less likely to be able to crawl into it, and you can make it all from wood. Throw a little stuffing in there to damp those half-wave resonances and you're done. Some bracing along the long panels would probably be needed too.
