Folded Horn vs Tapped Horn

A little background:

I'm coming from the home theater world. I've built a Large, Low Tuned subwoofer (13cu feet, tuned to 14hz) ( ) which works out great for the ultra low frequencies modern movies are capable of but what I lack is the upper midbass frequencies (30 - 100hz) which are typically known for the deep chest pounding impact that is found at rock concerts.

With that said, I'm looking to fill the midbass void in my home theater.

Based on preliminary research I've determined that I should be looking at an efficient horn alignment and I've narrowed it down to either a Folded Horn or Tapped Horn.

Can someone who has heard both describe the difference in sound, efficiency and midbass impact and offer any experiences they have have had in a home environment?
