Generally a low EBP value like that is going to have better results in a sealed or 4th order bandpass boxes.

What is a 4th order bandpass boxes and does it mean that the sound will be bad in ported ??

A 4th order bandpass box has a ported section and a sealed section. Heres a pic to illustrate one:


Those woofers were not meant to be in a standard ported box and most likely will not sound good if placed in one.

so most of the time cheep woofer = sealed
good woofer = ported ;P

Not at all, some great woofers sound great in sealed. But for an SPL system you would want to go ported.
