Default Platform 3 18s box size and ranges??

On the website, I see the recommend boxes varies, are there any pros and cons for each size? For example, could I use the smallest recommended ported box and not lose lows compared to a larger box? Or am I just asking a silly question?

the smaller the box, the less efficient a sub will play, but the tighter and punchier the bass will be.

the larger the box, the more efficient the sub will play and the greater the overall output will be...

the smallest of recommended boxes may also yield less low end output as where the largest recommended enclosure may suffer slightly on the mid/high bass output also has alot to due with the tuning...

hope that helps

Thanks for the info, :-) and that's what I had figured, I was just curious since I know PSI can tailor the subs to your needs, could I for example, get a Platform 3 or 2 18" that works well in the smallest ported box recommended (4.25ft^3 net) and still get the lows I seek?
