Double-checking a custom in-closet subwoofer design

Double-checking a custom in-closet subwoofer design

I have a Genelec 7380A subwoofer with my system of The Ones (W371A + 8361A - it sounds amazing). While the large towers look great in the room, the massive 7380A subwoofer is ugly and is not possible to hide in the room. Next to our piano it looks somewhat ridiculous (it makes a piano look small). We looked into designing a custom closet for it, but even that ended up being too chunky. We decided that the best approach is to put it into an existing closet, which is located to the immediate right of the listening area (looking at the speakers). The subwoofer fits in the closet, but not through the door, so we have to create a new "hidden" side door to use to move in the subwoofer. Our understanding is that we need enough ported airflow to match the surface area of the 15" speaker. Is it better to make the opening as large as possible? I've attached the design for the closet. We've worked through this with our AV consultants who hooked us up with this amazing system, but I thought I'd post the question here too since this is such an unusual custom installation. Feedback would be appreciated!
