If you want clean bass you really need a folded horn. The classical design was the Klipsh Horn.

You don't, that's a misconception.

Sander is right,

btw, a ported speakers port, is a horn (tuned to a specific note to extend bass response)

But all other considerations being equal, horns are more "sensitive", (louder)

But "acoustic suspension" speakers (sealed) have the best "Q", tightest bass

Ported speakers have the deepest bass "extension"

Neither style is "better", just better suited for a different applications

Raymond,

You clearly did not read all the pages of the subwoofer article.

What? Sander?

I will be honest, I just glanced over your article

But I have been building speakers "by the book" for years

I make my own crossovers from scratch (I do the math)

Help me out here, what did I say that wasn't right?

OCGW

PEACE
