Do these arguments also apply to your primary speakers?

Never saw a speaker with a slot port so I wouldn't know.

All this talk of ports and angles has me thinking I need to bring out my cylinder head porting and polishing kit to see if I can manage a few more DB out of the EP400\:D

By all means, but don't hurt yourself.

Ah, but remember that the EP400 originally had a port, and Axiom elected to take it out. Presumably there was a reason.

I believe that given the size of enclosure and the power of the DSP circuitry there wasn't any advantage in terms of output to going all sealed.

Perhaps there was an advantage in sound quality.

I agree with John. Given such a 'drastic' change, the speaker would have undergone many rigorous tests, and presumably, the current design reflects superior performance in its present configuration.

Question: Without a port, is the speaker now considered a sealed box? If so, wouldn't it have to have been made larger to obtain the same SPL as the older model?

There indeed was an earlier version with a port. I believe it wasn't up to Axiom's standards so the port was nixed.
