    Also, isn’t the Bose sub basically a sealed box with a port? When you take it apart to access the  driver, is there a sealed box in front (or behind) the driver and the ported box on the other side of the driver baffle? That’s my recollection of their design from WAY back.

    If so, that is what is called a Band-Pass design. If you can get the inside dimensions of the separate boxes (sealed and vented), and the approximate size of the port, I “MAY” be able to work it backwards to try to figure out some of the T/S parameters I listed in my first reply. Of course, they would be no substitute for actual measurements since I would have to make an initial assumption on at least one or 2 of the parameters and finesse it from there.
