Default Question about enclosures

So, from all the research and reading threads from my understanding 50% of people say to build enclosures exactly to the sub woofers specs , the other half suggests to at least double up on enclosure volume. What is the truth to this? Are these just opinions and tweaks that tune to people's personal preferences? What are the pros and cons? What is hurricane effect and which box is going to cause that? Isn't that effect simply explain the air movement visually? I want to build some boxes soon and my math sucks but I am willing to learn. Also thanks for reading.

more volume at the same tuning = louder but less acoustical suspension control.

most people are restricted by available space
either they still want cargo space Or they need space for batteries and amps
or both.

and some people buy too large of subs and then shoehorn them in {18s don't fit in most trunks}

I usually stick to specs. Sometimes I’ll make the enclosure larger for two reasons, 1) you can always reduce the volume to make an adjustment, and 2) give you options down the road if you switch brands or models they may need a larger box.
