Sealed Vs Ported Box

Sealed Box:

It is tight in nature and more accurate in bass output. In the case of louder bass, it needs more power for better efficiency and best performance. The boxes of the sealed box are smaller in size.

Ported Box:

The box is larger. The bass is less accurate and more bloomy and louder in sound output. It does not require more power still it is more efficient than a sealed box.

R&B / Rap Music: In case of rap music the sound on bass hears natural and enthusiastic in a ported box, whereas in sealed it is not.

Electro / Dance: For electro or dance music ported bass delivers better and best bass for this type of sound and music.
