Fundamentally? If you have the space and the budget, you can get the bass you want a bunch of different ways....

Pick the impedance that is best suited to your amp, either version of the Type S 15 works.

The following is a bit oversimplified, as the system's resonances will significantly increase impedance....

It sounds like an air leak to me.

I'm betting that the driver isn't properly sealed to the baffle. Try some duct seal on the gasket and make sure that the screws are snug.

Not a lot to add to the previous post. Simply put, 0.5 pi models are not reality.

Measurements would help with understanding, especially groundplane ones taken outdoors.

Also, you built...

Interesting fold concept.

Without SPL and impedance measurements, it is tough to say what is really going on.

As I folded it, the LilWrecker is an Akabak only model, it is too complex for...

I think you'll be alright if the amp has a flat response. There might be boost and a highpass integrated into the preamp side, if so, the response won't be as flat.

I don't think you'll hurt the...

Sure. You are comparing a BB gun to a howitzer here.

The Anarchy was making 105 dB when the driver tapped out.

The MicroWrecker was making 125 dB when my amp tapped out.

20 dB is HUGE.

Just 1/2" with this build, using 3/4" will mess up the internal volumes. I prefer proper multi-ply European birch, but Arauco works pretty well too.
Odds are that nothing you'll find at the local...
