    I believe one of the major differences is that you are able to achieive maximum excursion with very little power.

    There are quite a few benefits to an IB sub. Yes, it requires less power to reach a given excursion. This means less thermal compression and also less current applied to the driver. Less current lowers non-linear distortion due to Le(i) also known as flux modulation. You also have no compression of the air in an enclosure and no box walls to resonate.

    The Cult of the Infinitely Baffled forum has a good FAQ on IB subs. http://home.comcast.net/~infinitelybaffled/
