It's a Tapped Horn,

This design is based on the MTH design where the driver is placed horizontally.

I think it was Brian Steele that came with the idea to move the driver to the horizontal position to avoid suspension sagging. Check attachment.

Do these ‘really’ sound different?

It moves Fb a little(according to the dats impedance measurement), but it is audibly ‘quieter’ in the smaller exit version.

what if the exit was on the other side of the box?

A tapped pipe quarter-wave. You will find many threads on this subject. Maximizes potential levels at teh expense of bandwidth.

Another devolpment/invention from Tom Danley.

Great! I don't mind bandwidth! There is the tendency of users who want their subs to go nice up to 200 or even 300Hz, cause they are using tiny satélites as tops, I don't mind 30 to 80 or 30 to 90 , I can cross my tops lower or use kickbins.
