Ok ported is the same as slot ported. Notice they both have PORTED in them. I say port them. Most bahns sound like complete garbage sealed. Way to much mechanical noise for me.
And if you INVERT them, they can be sealed or ported. Again I recomend against this due to the mechanical noise present with most of the drivers I've come across.

Best bet is to port them...they will sound like **** sealed

x2. sealed is crap. i heard a flame kompression driver in a sealed box. not that great. ported would be better. slot ported, aeroports, tunable ports, etc.
sealed=NO PORTS :fyi:
also, DO NOT invert them. too much of a "bling" factor. but if you have the room/desire then by all means do it.

DO NOT get another audiobahn sub....i repeat...DO NOT get another audiobahn sub. You already messed up twice...don't do it thrice.
