A heavily ported long (14" or more) barrel with very small porting holes.

Even in the woods, a quiet marker isnt needed. They're going to hear you shoot no matter how quiet your marker is. You might was well make it as loud as possible.

the quieter you are, the harder it is to pinpoint your position off of just sound.  Yes you will still be heard, but where your exact location is, its much harder to track with a quieter barrel.

If you're talking about airball, a 14" barrel is perfect. The longer barrel helps you wrap around and push into the sides of bunkers.

Actually, I play speedball at night on a lighted field. The way it is lighted there are deep shadows in places from which you can shoot so that a relatively quiet marker can keep you from being detected. It allows me to post on people, take them out, and go undetected for much of the game...at least until I'm the only one left on the field.

 A 14" Whisper barrel, I have on and it's quite. The only thing you can here is the ping from when the gun is shot.

quietness may not seem important until you actually play speedball.
first off, when you break the starting position the first thing yer gonna do is run, it don't matter if you hear their markers shooting. what matters is if you hear the balls hitting the bunkers next to you. but, then again there is a rational threshold for the best noise level of your marker. i think, the quieter the better. see, a guy has a mask on and is breathing very deeply in speedball, well, in any paintball, so his breath whispering through the mask slits and the mask partially covering his ears, he won't be able to hear much for markers anyway.
there- hope that helps settle some noise debates about speedball.
now, if your looking to quiet your marker a bunch there's many things you can do. when i got my BSEM98 kit, the low pressure kit, and my J&J 14" ceramic together, i was very impressed with the noise level. i have honestly been told on numerous occasions that my marker was the quietest tippman they have heard. my marker is operating at 150psi, too, which helps a bit.
so, get a newer barrel. J&J's have a reputation for being very quiet, light, self-cleaning, and relatively accurate. the next thing is definately the LPK. smaller hammer, covered cocking hole, etc. makes for a very good cyclic silencer.

No way.  12"-10" is perfect for speedball.  You need to be able to peek around bunkers at close range, and you want the gun to be lighter, with more agility.  Trust me, using a 14" barrel in a speedball course is nothing but a pain.

Thats true, but if your "pushing an airball bunker" and suddenly you need to retreat, a smaller barrel would be more smaller and lighter, which would make it easier.  I guess it all depends on what your preference is then.
