    Generally speaking, a sealed box will provide a cleaner and tighter bass, while a ported box will likely go deeper. I definitely prefer a sealed sub for music.

    The most accurate subwoofer I have heard that does not break the bank and can fill up just about any size room is a VMPS Larger

    If you are willing to go used my aci force 10 in sealed was the quickest most accurate sub I have ever owned (and I've owned a bunch). The second best was one of the old mirage bi polar subs (i had a bps-150i). The bi polar thing really does make for an incredibly fast and accurate sub. I've never owned maggies but i have read that those mirages are an excellent match.

    I would recommend building your own. For 700 dollars you can build a very nice DIY sub if you don't mind putting in some effort and have the right tools.
