Hi i recently purchased a Pioneer TS-W1200F which is a free air subwoofer. I have been told that i can still put it in a ported box and get the same result, is this true?

Well it depends on what you tune your enclosure too. It CAN be made the same result - providing that it is tuned to the correct frequency. I never use free-air subwoofers as the SPL levels are never as good, and neither is the bass. Calcualte a good vented enclosure for it for best results. Cheers

Well, my Vega's tune low, around 35hz in a low-bass ported box. But for SPL, I tune around 40 hz. The pioneers, depending on the amp, would probably do well around the 45 to 50 hz range. Or just use the standard 4" by 5" or 6" port. That seems to be what most pre-fab boxes such as Q-Logic use.
