View Full Version : going from 30hz to 35hz

friend has 2 12's and wants to know if it will be worth cutting the port down to up the tuning to 35 hz. would the difference be noticeably louder or not worth it? he wants a little more output but i dunno how big of a diff it would be. thanks

If he made his own port plug kinda thing, then it would be worth it, just an easy way to try different tunings. But if he is going to built a completely new box I wouldnt say its worth it.

Id do it just to try it out. I dont think he'll gain very much... but if its just a matter of cutting down some round ports, why not?

well i will be doing it for him. jsut using a jigsaw through the cutout and cutting the port down and then sanding it out. should be pretty simple but he wants to know if it will be noticeably louder or jsut a little bit. im guessing it wouldnt be a large difference but ive never done something like this before. kinda want to do it jsut to find out for myself.

it depends on the box size, if its a larger box it could have 3+ db gain from 30-35 hz tuning, but he's gonna loose out on some of his low end
it might be louder but it may not still have the gut shaking bass a 30hz tuned enclosure would have

but if you increase the size of your box you will not loose any low end
