Mouthpiece Tip Openings??

I am looking into buying a new mouthpiece for my tenor and I have an idea of what kind of mouthpieces im interested in but I am confused on the different tip openings. Can someone tell me what effect the tip opening does to your sound. Is smaller opening better or is larger opening better?

    a larger tip opening is harder to start out with, but it gives a much more mature sound. different brands make different varieties of sizes. i play on a yanagisawa metal for my bari and it is the best. i tried the 5 opening, and it was easier to start but now it is much better. its kinda like reed sizes.
