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

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.

Designing for "punch bass" usually is not a specific goal, but cabinets with high output capability and smooth phase response in the 60-200 Hz range do a good job of providing it.
