John is correct, a loudspeaker, sealed box or vented is a resonant system which can be driven internally (as per normal) or externally. In the latter case, just as a diaphragm wall or floor mode does, driving that resonance takes away energy from the room sound pressure .
For a loudspeaker in a room, at bass frequencies, it is measurable but usually small and like he said terminating the speaker (as it is when connected to an amplifier), kills the Q of the resonant absorber.
Can you point me towards somewhere that shows the measurements you referred to?
I don't think i ever saved any of them, a problem taking a lot of measurements i guess.
