Default Tang Band 8" sub Qts

Recent AudioXpress articles say the Tang Band 8" sub has a Qts of around 0.45 to 0.50, as opposed to the manufacturer's number of 0.30. Has anyone here verified that?

If it's true, the driver may be suitable for a closed box subwoofer.

Even if what AX says is true, the high Le will likely result in little bass from a sealed alignment, as GM explained to me on a different question:

I'm not sure that what GM says is correct. Le rolls off the highs and can cause a bump just above the low frequency rolloff, but it typically doesn't raise F3....
