    Sorry I was on vacation.  I agree with everything that has really been said.  Bose typically does not publish specs at all.  In fact, they shut down people who take measurements of their speakers and post them.  It’s really ca carzy thing. 

    But most Bose subs use a transmission line. I would consider resuing the box you have and then adding a fullrange to the top.  Changing out the amplifier with something like the Lepai sounds like a good idea.  If that doesn’t interest you.  Than I am all for experimentaton.  Without test equipment, it really would be just guessing.  Maybe try an isobaric and then shorten or tengthen the port until you like the sound. Most people use test equipment, but if you don’t have it, this is how they did it back in the day.  Of course, depending on where you live, somoen might be able to test them for you.
