Sealed Box Subwoofers vs Ported Subwoofers | SVS | Speakers


Which is Better? Sealed Box Subwoofers vs. Ported Subwoofers.

Well, to answer this question we need to ask you one more question.

Are you going to use the subs in your home theater system or your audio system?

If you need a subwoofer for your home theater system, ported (or bass reflex or vented) subs would be a better choice. You want to feel the bass of action sequences, jets screaming by, and bombs exploding while you are enjoying your favorite blockbusters. The “boomy” ported subs can deliver this in a better way and more easily than the sealed box subs. Ported boxes have a vent that reinforces low bass frequencies. Ported subwoofers require two to three times less power to produce same amount of bass as compared to sealed box subwoofers. However, sealed box (or acoustic suspension) subwoofers will provide tight, clean and accurate bass. The audio output is quality driven and clean across entire frequency band. If you are looking for a subwoofer with punchy bass for your audio listening experience, sealed box would be the way to go.
