It would have less output. It should sound slightly better (but that doesn't mean ported sound bad and it also depend on what you like). If you can accept a larger enclosure the ported subwoofer will be a better bang for the buck. People that go sealed usually get 2 or 4 of them where ported can bring decent output with 1 or 2 (but again it depend of a few other factor).

Sealed also play lower since it doesn't need HPF but is does so at lower volume. Usually for a 20hz tune vs a proper size sealed the sealed start to get more output around 10hz compared to the ported.

If you tell us your room size and what you can accept as far as enclosure size (net volume) we can do better recommendation.
