Hey guys, in your opinion or experience, which speaker gives the punchiest bass whether powered or non-powered?

Mike, that's rather an open question much like "what car gives the best ride?"
It depends...

MikeHarris:
not brand specific
horn loaded is punchiest...bandpass the least

I had always thought that a subwoofer's cab design is what mostly determines punchiness more than any other factor. For example, the EAW SBX220:

It's description reads "Unique baffle design and advanced transducers maximize low frequency punch"..........

So I am curios about which bass cabs are designed to give punch bass.
