View Full Version : Orion P Series?
12-21-2005, 03:24 PM
I have 4 15's powered by 2 Viper 1200's. What would be a good size ported box and a good tuning freq for these subs? Because i had a box built i do not know what it is tuned to(the ssf on amps is 47hz)and i lost my low end. But before i had them in a sealed box and the lows were awesome so is the box tuned to high or do these subs just work better sealed. So i want to know if anybody has any suggestions because i want the extra output of ported but i also want the awesome lows i get from sealed.

Try turning the ssf on the amp down to about 30 hz and you should notice a great deal of difference.. 47hz is AWFULLY high for a ssf...

ya, turn the filter down lower and you get your low end back

Does it matter that i do not know what the box is tuned to or can i just turn the ssf down because i do not want to damage the subs. I had the box built by a shop around here and they can not tell me what it is tuned to. Pretty much i just want to know if it matters what my box is tuned to before i go and drop the ssf and cause damage to my subs

Anybody know if the box tuning matters?

Box tuning definitely plays a role in how low the speakers will play without bottoming out. I hate to say it, but if the audio shop can't tell you what the box is tuned to and they were the ones that set the ssf @ 47 Hz then they shouldn't be touching anything that is car audio related.

Well they said they would be able to tell me the tuning whenever the installer gets back after the holidays.

well tell us the measurements of the box and port and im sure someone will be able to help you out on here sooner than the installer

12-24-2005, 11:22 AM
Well can sombody tell me the way to find my boxes frequency with my measurements
12-24-2005, 12:23 PM
id say its tuned to around 46hz if all my numbers were right
12-24-2005, 12:24 PM
9.75 after port
~9 after subs and port

Does anyone else have any ideas on what it might be tuned. But if it is tuned that high can i still use this box as a daily driver for these subs? And can i regain some of my lows by turning the ssf down with such a high tuned box? If so what should i tune my ssf to?

you can make the port longer
12-24-2005, 04:11 PM
I guess i will just get a new box. But if it is tuned to 46hz could i still play music daily and turn my ssf down to get some of my lows back? Because the subs specs say to tune them to 40hz would that 6hz be that damaging to the subs so that i could not use this box as a daily driver?
12-24-2005, 06:21 PM
Can this box not be used for daily driving? you said it was at 46hz and they are supposed to be tuned to 40hz. Will that make that big of a difference and will it damage the subs?

Should i get a new box or can i tune the ssf down to regain my lows? And if i do turn the ssf will the high tuning of the box damage the subs. The only music i listen to is rap so i did not know if it would damage the subs that much. I am giving them their RMS
