I understand the easiest way to combat impedance rise is through box design. How might I reduce impedance rise as to make sure the amp delivers the most power in daily driving situations?

I think making the box smaller helps. Maybe I'm not remembering.

This is correct

The smaller you can go, the lower the peak will be and the higher in frequency it will be.

Assuming it's sealed, that is.

As ported enclosures get smaller, they are also becoming less efficient. It's a battle :) I just build multiple boxes and run the ones I like.
