Those two books are faaaantastic. Good job.
What you describe would behave like a "large" leaky box. The woofer will act more similarly to an infinite baffle install more than a sealed box, and some of the rear wave will mix with the front wave causing some amount of cancellation. The exact frequencies and attenuation can vary, but it's usually the lower octaves and the amount is proportional to the amount of air leakage.
Measure with mics, mark with chalk, cut with torch, grind to fit, sand to finish, paint to match.
