Typical xover is anywhere from 80-120Hz, but almost never higher than that for decent speakers. 80Hz seems like a good standard for most people. Set the xover for the mains and the sub to the same...

1) Even if they come with gaskets, remove the gaskets and don't use them. Usually, foam gasket tape works best for the job. It's the same stuff that you use to super cheaply seal doors/windows...

Try to measure only from 5Hz to 120Hz when testing the sub. Otherwise, it's impossible to see what you need to see to make modifications.

You may also be slightly clipping the signal, which can sometimes sound like port chuffing to the uninitiated. :)

Disagree entirely. The microcube is 3.5cuft, much smaller than the FV15HP. And it costs about $400 including amp.

Martycube is 5cuft and hardly any more expensive.
