Simplexx 15 Bass cab, BP1525 woofer, Sealed versus Ported Low Frequency Maximum SPL:
This chart shows that sensitivity alone doesn't tell the whole story. A sealed cab relies on the cone alone for output, and when the driver runs out of xmax maximum output goes down. A ported cab shifts the load to the port down low, and at the same time reduces the cone excursion, so it will have higher maximum SPL than sealed. This situation also applies to the S10 and S12 ported versus sealed, or for that matter most ported versus sealed cabs.

Simplexx 21, loaded with the Eminence NSW 6021-6. It's compared with the 2x12 T60.
The T60 has higher sensitivity and costs a lot less to build, the S21 is a much smaller cabinet. If you have room for the T60 it's the better choice, if you don't there's the S21.
Comparisons of the different models with each other and commercial cabs.
