    I never have experienced a sub with PR,s for vents. Is there a difference in sound compared to a sub that is ported?

    Not really, except for less compression and/or port noise.

    Thanks Jack. I am still undecided on how to vent. I guess if I go with the new Adire, I will go with the PR to keep from having to go with a 4-6 ft. tall enclosure.

    I hope this isn't too semantic, but there's only one way to "vent", and that's a port. A reflex cabinet can include ports or passives as resonators, though.

    Thanks Jack. I seem to be corrected every other question lately. I have been reading up on DIY subs lately but still can't seem to get any- " well very little " of the terminology down. I am a hands on learner. Thanks for the correction.
