    If you want "boomy bass", I'd suggest a ported box

    I'm going to agree with nova and say go ported.

    Yeah ported is definitely the way to go if you listen to a lot of rap, and prefer the boomy sound.

    well i dont recomend bandpass at all.......unless they are built for a specific sub.....they tend to have very limited freq. response at which they sound good at....
