    Re: deeper bass in a 28 hz ported box vs sealed?

    There are lots of subs that dont' have peaks, and lots of subs that do have peaks. My digital designs 9512 e peaks huge between 40-50hz, whereas the XXX shouldn't peak so much (or so I've heard). I'm actually looking to trade my 9512 for an XXX so I can do a comparison on this exact issue...

    peace.

    listen to big bassman, he knows what he's talking about. The reason people like sealed(including me) is that it will play much higher than a ported, and the bass is a little tighter. But if you want to hit hard at the lower frequencies, I would go ported, like he said ported is typically 3 db louder. The sealed will play low but not as loud as the ported will.
