Isn't that the truth! I prefer unported as well, but put ported heads on my kicks due to to uneducated sound guys. I even had one guy so frustrated with mic placement that he actually put 1 mic BETWEEN the 2 kicks. Then he couldn't figure out why the snare and rack toms were coming through the kick channel.
