It depends on the sub. If you are in a competition or something, higher freq. tuning will usually get you higher pressures. If you tune too high in a everyday setup, then the bass tends to sound "muddy" or "boomy".

Ive read somewhere that tuning at high freq after a while the subs will start to sound bad. At 35 freq would they start to sound bad after a while?

if you want it to sound good i wouldnt go past 38. any higher and it gets really bad on the sq side. i REALLY like 32 hz. i tried 38 and it was too muddy for me. 32 hz played LOW, and it could also keep up with quick beats.

mines at 32 hz and i love it. It gets low and are great at keeping up with double bass in the metal i listen to

you could have a box made that has a port plug, so that you could ahve it tuned to whatever for spl, like 40 hz or whatever, and the slap in the plug and have it down to 32 or 35 or whatever you want, but it has to be lower then 40

I think alot of people dont understand what they are saying when they say SPL.
Hitting high numbers on a Microphone in your kick/dash/head rest is totally different than putting in your favorite rap CD and having it "hit really hard"
Most generally tuning lower will SOUND louder/shakes objects more. Notice how some songs sound alot louder than others, more often than not that song you *think* is louder is probably just a lower note. Tuning lower generally sounds louder, but not too low, since tuning lower does generally ruduce actual SPL for any given subwoofer. If you listen to rap dont tune that over 38hz.
