Why would you want a ported horn for kick!? it would be harder to match the kick and sub up, and you dont need a massive horn for 80Hz. Unless you mean some sort of cunning port-in-throat design.....

A ported horn would be useful so it could be used without scoops on it's own for different events.

If designed in relation with the scoops, we could look at port output vs horn output vs phase difference Wink

It all depends on what scoops you have..
