Front loaded will give you great output but it's going to be pretty darn big.
By the way what's the application? Falling off at 40hz isn't considered "deep bass" really.

Hi, domestically you can't use horns and deep bass in the same sentence, rgds, sreten.

I would suggest multiple woofers instead
prefer to call it more accurate, rather than 'faster'
more accurate also means less distortion

less distortion by multiple subs u don't mean it will be faster. as far as i don't know the faster he meant the best transient freq respond. CW SL36 can work like that. 4 multiple boxes by stack seem be low.

Starting to fall off at 40Hz is plenty low enough for the majority of music. Even Rap music which is considered to be bass heavy doesn't go below 35Hz. A horn that starts to roll off at 40Hz will still be able to capture those rare 35Hz notes without any trouble. If you analyze your favorite songs with Audacity software, you might be surprised at how little continent there is below 35Hz.
