Well since I just posted saying I was using a slot port I now feel stupid asking this... Which is better and for what reason(s)? Slot ports or tube ports?

slot ports are suposed to have less port noise.... but either, if done correctly, will work just as good

slot ports are easier to make, and also increase the strength of the box. I prefer tube ports though in cases where you're not dealing with excessive output.

It just depends really. I have high output speakers in my bedroom (CV V-12F's) with dual 3.5" tube ports, and they sound amazing.

doesnt matter really its all about port area.. have enough and you wont have port noise.. like scuba said though they are easier to make and will strengthen the box.. tube ports can also be difficult to install properly especially when u get into a 6" pipe which is about as small as you want to go for most higher end subwoofers. you should have 6" clearance all around the port entrance
