First, if I wanted a ported speaker I wouldn't have purchased the Heresy, second, if I need killer bass it's much easier to do this.
And no matter how many, or how big the ports are it won't get you anywhere near the depth these subs will plumb.
The thread was intended to talk about the Heresy's bass as is, not modified, etc.
Well alrighty then. I was just sharing my success, tested by others............just in case anyone wanted to improve the bass without adding another box........AS IS, as you put it.
No harm no foul.
This thread was to show I really don't consider the Heresy to be bass shy unless sited other than as intended, on the floor.
I've used ported speakers, for the most part don't care for them, correct that, I don't care for speakers ported with a tube, or multiples there of.
There are a few exceptions, few being the key word, and none of those are rear ported.
I totally get what you are saying. My own system is all Danley Synergy horns and tapped horn subs.
My post was in no way intending to mitigate or refute your very good point.
I have 4 of the latest Heresy's in commercial version, with sealed boxes and titanium diaphragms.
On the floor, in corners, they sound fine on their own.
Different strokes for different folks. Lots of ways to get more bass when wanted.
Also, Unmodified Heresy's don't piss off the neighbors as much or as often as those with subs, LOL.
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.
