Sure, the 6 cube enclosure is more efficient but if I'm building a sealed box that size I'm going to be stuffing more than 1 driver in there.
Considering these drivers are ~190 each there is no reason I can see not to.
For those that aren't space/WAF limited and have less amp reserves by all means go with the most efficient enclosure you want to.

Agreed, just looking to try something different in the living room. There is no way I can get by with a 10+ cubic foot enclosure in this room. I've got plenty of the ultra low stuff going on with my quad dual opposed setup downstairs. Box/wood is cheap so it's fun to experiment.
It seems that I'm better off building dual opposed if I'm moving into the >7 cubic foot region anyway. These drivers are very inexpensive considering their output so I'd rather just add drivers, pick up the sensitivity and extension, and go sealed.
