If porting allows for more midbass, then doing that will allow these speakers to stand out in your line up. The sealed version isn't much larger than the 1099, it would be crossed over at 80Hz and it would have the same sensitivity. Not much differentiation and frankly probably not with your effort. For more pronounced midbass, right now the only options in your line up are the quad woofer 893 (untested with lower sensitivity) or the 1899. I love the idea of the 1899 but the cost and size make them not very realistic for most people. 15 x 14 x 44 is big but doable.
Would porting these allow them to be crossed over to a sub at 60Hz? If not would going slightly taller allow for a lower tune so one can easily and safely cross them over at 60Hz? Allowing for more midbass and a lower crossover point would distinguish these from the rest of your pack and probably allow you to reach a larger demographic.
BTW I prefer the slot port 😁
