Default Stereo Peerless XLS 10's: LT or PR?

Hi guys,

I have two Peerless XLS 10" subs and two of the matching 400 gramme passive radiators.

I intend to build a fully active system, using 6.5-7" mid bass drivers, 1" dome tweeters and the Peerless for the lower registers.

Originally I intended on using the passive radiators to tune the boxes to around the 22hz mark.

Now I am thinking that with sufficient power it may be a good idea to try a linkwitz transform instead. Absolute maximum SPL isn't hugely important. I can't remember the last time I wanted to inflict 100db of 20hz on my neighbours! I am much more interested in getting good integration, attempt a flat 20-20 and have nice tight, musical bass.

What, in your opinion, would sound better? The linkwitz transform or the PR?

I don't yet have WinISD installed on this computer.. Would it be possible to build the cabs with removable baffles and try each: IE will an internal volume that tunes well with the PR be OK to use sealed with the LT?

Many thanks..
