honestly im not sure which enclosure will be loudest you would have to have them tested, im a big fan 1 big enclosure. Which organization is holding the event?? If your going for spl i would tune your enclosure higher though.

if i go around 45 hz? do you think that good for compete and also for daily drive? coz i dont want to make a box only for competition then make another box for daily drive.

get some aeroports than you can have one for comps and another for daily there easy to change

if tuned to 45 it would not be worth using as a daily driver.imo if going for sql try 35 hz

interchangable port- most poeple will biuld a box for spl and then biuld a port that will fit inside the port that is tuned for a different frequency. that is what i know is a port plug. others may think of it in other ways because not everyone uses the same terms.
