Default what would you do wall vs 4th

I have enough room for a ported wall with 6 18" or I can do a 2:1 4th order with 6 15".

what would you do and why??

I can't make up my mind.

I'll be running only 8kw.

thanks

would it be better than a ported wall with more cone area?? I've never heard a 4th order so I'm undecided.

A correctly tuned 4th is great. Numbers and lows all in one box I would do a 4th, but I'm biased
