What I would love to see to compare is the 8 LMS sealed compared spl wise to yours.
The LMS drivers cost $7200 for 8
Your 4 drivers cost probably around $1000 ish
Spl very similar or not. would love to know.

Now experimenting this vs that? Yup! Rerunning for thermal, door open, shut, shut hard, ports plugged... all the lights on tv on in the house vs no lights on TV off.
What spooks me is the HUGE gain by holding the door shut very tight or even just closed vs open. If that tiny door makes that much difference, what does my ceiling do? My entryway! I sit here and listen and listen and I hear that 30Hz-35Hz, my 2nd favorite range
and it kills me.
I understand about 8 LMS vs mine, heck I've wondered that and vs Brian's 8 IB3s IBed and so many others with great big LFE around here, but at the same time, I know there's apples to orange juice here. I push my subs to the limit, notnyt just tickles his? IDK, I have no idea how hard he pushes his to get his numbers and I havent studied his #s yet, just glanced.
FYI four IB3s new shipped was $890ish, six was $1350ish.
