Default Dipole cancellation theory

Hello there dipole experts =)

When I have the cancellation and the distance d in between the front and back of the driver, is it the total path distance that the wave has to travel that is of importance or is it the external path length from the front and the back?

See my fancy example here, the external front and back path difference around the box would be the same but the internal path length differs. Will the left one have less bass output or will they be equal?

Thanks in advance,
Olle
