really a sealed box i feel is the best for the double kick drum. but sum have higher like around 42-47Hz and sounds pretty decent too.

I listen to lots of of metal sounds great with low tuned ported boxes like 28-30 hz either low tuned or sealed is best for metal IMHO. I prefer low tuned boxes in general
