    Neither. Do a search, this is a regularly recurring question.

    Both designs are different. Neither design is better.
  5. Depends on what you like man. Its like saying is American or cheddar cheese better. The answer? Either can be delicious and either can suck when you get a bad slice. The subject really has been beaten to death though. Your just asking for another opinion battle. Honestly I like bother but lean towards ported. Same way i lean towards pepper jack. On a more important subject cheese is ****ing great right!

    Blondes are a very close second though, tied with brunettes. :D

    I personally prefer ported cabs. I have a double front ported Markbass 2x10 cab. Sounds incredible!

    Sealed cabs can be very sweet sounding but the big majority of drivers are designed for ported cabs.

    There's something that's called American cheese? I had to wiki that: turns out your legally not allowed to call it cheese. Is cheddar in the US that bad that it's only a matter of opinion which one you like most?

    See: I care about cheese too :D

  15. :D

    I thought it was a three way tie!?!?

    I've never had an unported bass cab
  20. Stay on topic, we have concurred that there is no "better" on the port issue. Now we are discussing Cheesehead vs redhead.
