Any difference in drivers?

I currently am using some Vienna Acousic Mozarts for my mains and a DIY Sealed Dayton Ultimax PR15 for my sub. I have it at about 40% volume on the 500 watt plate amp.
I listen to 90% Home Theater in my living room.
I have noticed with it's current location that the room nodes are pretty bad and the sub has a very noticeable roll-off below ~30Hz. So, I started to build a 6 cuft ported enclosure for it for a flatter response. (ported size as recommended by Dayton)
Well....after I got all the pieces cut out, I got a very stern "not a chance in hell that's going in my living room. It's too big." from the wife.

So now I'm looking at smaller alternatives.
I am looking at two subs placed on either side of the TV.

So, the questions are thus:
Recommended combination for <4 cuft with somewhat flat response?
I have looked at Dayton UM12s in (dayton specified) ported enclosures...but the port velocity is high 38m/s at 20Hz (as modeled by Win ISD)
Has anyone made this sub with the 1.5x10" port noticed any port noise?
There's a whole bunch of sealed options for smaller...does it make a difference in the final sound if I have 2x18s at 30% volume or 2x12s at 60% volume? maybe just distortion?

We need a bit more info.

To start with what is the current size of your wife?


Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.
