Are you looking for noise or SQ?
Of course ported/vented will sound louder than sealed.
Depending on the setup, bandpass can sound horrible.

ported in my opinion is the easiest box to get great sound and deep bass from

from what i understand sealed boxes will technically hit lower frequencies then ported or bandpass. but w/ ported you tune the box to a certain frequency to give it a boost at that frequency so it is a louder setup.

are you depending on internal resonance to amp the sound of a lower frequency in a sealed box vs. a ported box?

i can imagine that leak

no i'm saying if your doin a bass cd or somethin and you bottom out the subs in a well designed professionally made sealed enclosure granted the subs are decent and you don't have a subsonic filter on the amp the subs should go as low as they are meant to play. and in a ported box the sound will " cut off" at some point depedning on the box's tuning Frequency. this is what i've been told by local MECP installers
i have never used ported b/c i have always had multiple subs and small cars

sealed will play the deepest.

anything ported or bandpass rolls off steeply or has to be filtered just below the tuned frequency.
The tuned frequency should, and usually is higher than the Fs of the driver as well.
