Default ported vs. 6th order?

So I have 2 American Bass HD 15 Dual 1 subwoofers. I currently have them in a ported box roughly 2.5 cubes net per sub, tuned to roughly 33 hz,

I have 2 american bass 150.1 amplifiers and i want to let these things fly, slaved american bass said I can expect roughly 5k at 1 ohm strapped, provided I have good electrical.

The car is a 2004 yukon so i have roughly 45" deep by 49" wide and dont wanna go over 24" for height, Is this enough room for even a 6th order, and what gains should I be able to expect from this.

Basically what are the benefits of doing a 6th order vs just a ported box in terms of output. Any other 6th order general knowledge is appreciated.

Not ready to wall it off yet, was hoping I don't have to, that's 30 cubes of space to work with. I don't know much about 6th orders, but I was hoping one for 2 15's would fit in 30 cubes of space.

That is ample space.
the iron law proves true here. through a bigger box and smaller passband we can achieve higher output.

Planning on any design sales any time soon. I was told you are the guy to go to for a legit properly designed 6th.

From what Ive seen, HD woofers dont like 4th or 6th order designs very well. Ask Mikey Pilato who had them in his hummer.

2 15's in a proper regular ported box will do good
