With as many subs and configurations I've fiddled with throughout the years, certain genres just sound better with ported. Can't say I prefer one over the other as I like both sealed & ported, but it's very hard to replicate the more effortlessly pronounced notes of a correctly built ported sub when using a sealed. We're not just talking about the very bottom end either..I seldom listen rap and hip hop these days, but I'll agree, ported is the way to go with those genres. My Polk MM1540 in 2CU.Ft. sealed down firing enclosure powered by a JBL MS-A5001 does OK with it, but its not ideal.
