    I just recently changed from sealed to ported and I love it. I still have the punch and it is much louder.

    I can't tell that big of a difference in mine. I do know that it is louder with one 12 ported then it was with 2 sealed. I will get proof of that this weekend when I get it metered.

    Pros and cons for Ported.
    PROs:
    Higher SPL, less boomy (some like, some not) free backrub, more effecient
    CONs:
    Less SQ, More space taken up..
