I like the rds stuff, Rick has built up the line and the 6.5 are lil monsters if enclosed right. I've a bit of experience designing for those particular subs.

They seem to do pretty good in .5 tuned to 35 hz or so. This is the first generation. I pulled it from a box that had 4 of these in it, 3 of them blown. This was the lone survivor. My first time using anything from RDS. It feels nice. I might buy one for myself. It's a heavy little sucker.

They're hi ebp subs, tuning them 36hz in .4ft3 with 6.5in2 of port seems to let them open up, in a 6th?
I'd probably try for a 1:1 or close and ignore modeling software. Sooo peaky no matter how you model it with a 6th. Remember cabin gain is any part of the result. I've had great luck designing ported for those. Ive yet to try a 4th because of the reverse ratio and ebp but a 6th is doable. Given the ratios are on point.
Design for what the sub likes... Dont force it.
