using a higher Fs in a WO32?

I had read through most of the stuff here and likely could read through it again.
The WO32 seems to be not as picky with the FS of the driver as other designs to me.
I would like to know if anyone else has found this or the opposite.
I have a pair of 8" drivers with a Fs of only 65hz and keep tossing the idea around of trying them in WO32 enclosure 10" deep 32X24.

The Fs is so high that I question the use of them in a sub. they are really sensitive and worked really well in a ported full range I made awhile back. the mid/tweets died and I was left with the 8"

If I can get some feed back that would be great. If Everyone thinks that its a bad idea I have alternative plans in a full range rebuild.

I have no idea Gex.

However, I can imagine the driver performing fine, just with limited output in a sealed enclosure below its Fs.

In the WO32, the driver is in a sealed chamber, so perhaps the horn will only amplify the front radiation of the driver.

making the enclosure itself smaller will raise its resonance, if the planned reduction in size is consistent with the increase in resonance frequency then you should have a system that resonates well, just at a higher frequency.

I doubt those drivers would do well in a full sized WO32
