Subwoofer Placement - An informative video from HomeTheatreReview.com
What’s the differences between ported, sealed and cylinder subwoofers?While the form factor is clearly different, the acoustic performance within each family is virtually identical because they share many of the same components. As such, considerations like aesthetic preference and whichever version will best blend into your décor should steer your decision. Also using the “Merlin” tool, will help you match up your existing speakers to your new sub.
Sealed boxes: For deep, precise bass A sealed box is an airtight enclosure housing your subwoofer. A sealed box is best for any music and movies that demands tight, accurate bass that hits you in the chest. Expect flat response (not excessively boomy), deep bass extension, and excellent power handling. Each beat in a tight bass setup plays crisply, accurately, and with no ringing after it hits. The sealed air inside one of these enclosures acts like a shock absorber, smoothly modulating the subwoofer cone's back and forth motion, so all the notes get produced evenly. Sealed subs are generally more compact than ported subs and can often fit easier in some locations. What a sealed sub rarely does is roar, thunder, or boom. Sound quality buffs and purists will look to the sealed box because of its accuracy and flat frequency response.
Ported boxes: For forceful bassAlso called vented, or bass reflex, these boxes are larger and more complex to design, but the payoff is usually worth it. Ported boxes use a vent (called a port) to reinforce low bass response. You get more output than you would from a sealed box at any given amplifier wattage. Some people prefer the sound of ported boxes for rap, rock, heavy metal, hard-driving music or action movies with deep bass explosions. Ported boxes can deliver deeper bass than sealed boxes, though they need to be much larger than sealed enclosures to accomplish that so take up more floor space.
