I have heard it said sealed subwoofers tend to be "tighter" and more musical.

So I am wondering, would blocking the rear port on the BIC PL-200 tighten up it's performance at the expense of some lower frequency response?

I assume no but thought it was worth asking.

My guess is that it would depend on whether or not the sub is designed to have its performance tightened up by blocking the port(s). Two ways to find out would be:
- trial and error; and/or
- contacting BIC.

NO! I owned that sub for a couple of months and experimented with it. I did try the plug the sub and it just didn't work out. It sounded way better the way it was designed to. BTW, I gave up the fight and just bought a better sub.

Is this actually a good idea for the sub to be blocking the port on one that wasn't designed for it?

no you can damage it and the frequency response would be worse because the driver parameter and box is not designed to be sealed.
