If you use the closed box loudspeaker designer on my website www.readresearch.co.uk you can find out how low it will go and get an idea of the size of response peak, in various sizes of box.

There is no best size or design for anything, it's all down to your tastes and needs.

It's an exe file so work systems probably block it. One day I will make it into a spreadsheet with a graph.

The driver is ok for the price. Quite a big box is needed though.
