    subsonic filter

    My amp has a fixed subsonic filter at 15hz, and my box is tuned to 32hz. Is this going to cause a problem?

    What's the slope on the filter?

    Re: subsonic filter

    Lol do any of them actually tell u the slope? I know mine doesn't. If the slope is light enough it may affect bass output, just if the slope cuts into the usable frequency range at all. Hopefully they are all made with a 24db slope.

    I usually do 5 below box tuning so 15 might be low

    Don't use it.

    If you have the choice of switching it off, then do it.

    I don't have the choice. Why would you say to turn it off?

    In most cases, it's not necessary.

    Re: subsonic filter

    if you don't listen to Decaf you probably won't ever have any issues with your SSF being too low

    Well in that case be careful... A lot of decaf'd trax go down way lowww Just take it easy on the volume knob & make sure your sub isn't unloading on any given track before you just crank right into it...
