    Question about an amp and a ported box

    Hey,
    I have a jbl gto 600.1 amp and I have a ported box for my jl w6v2. Do I need a "sub sonic filter" for my amp since I have a ported box. I have no idea what a sub sonic filter is, how to use it, or where to buy one. Or can I just hook up my sub straight to my amp? I have never had a ported sub before...

    Amp - JBL gto 600.1
    Sub - 12w6v2 tuned 30hz

    it filters out frequnecys, usualy below 20Hz so it wound damage your subs. subsonic filter should be on your amp. labled

    Amp doesn't have a subsonic filter... what is your box tuned to? Subsonic filters should be set to 1/2 octave below the tuned frequency (so.. [tuned frequency - (1/2*tuned frequency)]). FMOD's make great subsonic filters. www.partsexpress.com.

    I have been told that my amp doesn't have a subsonic filter. And my box is tuned to 30 Mhz.

    lol, I assume 30Hz, not 30,000,000Hz (30 MHz). A 20Hz FMOD will do.
