My plans have changed, I have a little more room. Would it be a better bet to go with 11.3 cubes tuned to 37hz for my system in my sig? My port area is 132.5 sq. inches, is that too much?

why, I can't go any bigger. The L7s love the tuning around 36-38hz more than anything else if it's gonna be in the 30s.

have you built a box yet?

i dont know if it would make a huge noticable difference, its would only be not even .25cuft extra per sub

the port area is not too much, if anything you can give it some more

x2, and like mentioned above.. I would tune it a little lower.

Hmm, well the output drops tremendously from 37hz to 34hz.

Yeah, it drops almost 1.5dB plus the lows aren't really even picked up when tuning lower. But then again, I'm using the T/S parameters from the 2004 L7s in BBP6

Could someone with BBP6 and the 2006 L7 T/S programmed into the application get me a frequency response graph please? Are the 2004s going to have a lot different response than the 2004s?

The response should be different, seeing as they are different subs.
If you bbp6, you should have an option to update the driver list, that might have the new kickers in it.

*****, you shut the **** up. These people giving me advise have never heard what the advise they are giving. They are giving simple minded answers that "look" right from what just about every other thread has. , plus I asked if 11.3 cubes was too large or ideal or if my port area was too much. So don't you ***** at me for what I'm asking for. Bamaboy was the only person who really gave me an honest solid answer, and I thank you for that. Towncar is the only other credible person that has owned an L7 (15 though). I simply made the remark why I'd want to tune it lower (advantages). My main goal is to get really ****ing loud in the 40-65hz band since L7s are strongest there in a ported application as I ahve stated in numerous other threads. So before you ****ing stick words in my mouth saying "your advice isn't good enough for me", go outside and play some hide and go **** yourself.

first: chill out.


I asked if 11.3 cubes was too large or idealthey answered that. And honestly, its up to you to decide if its too large. Larger box = more gain at the expense of power handling and group delay. If you're happy with the group delay and you aren't experiencing over-excursion, you're fine.

if my port area was too much.umm... bro? they answered that too.

My main goal is to get really ****ing loud in the 40-65hz band since L7s are strongest there in a ported application as I ahve stated in numerous other threads.and if you don't know how to do this, you should pay a little more attention, do a little more reading, and be a little more grateful that people are taking time out of their days to help you.

So before you ****ing stick words in my mouth saying "your advice isn't good enough for me", go outside and play some hide and go **** yourself.he doesn't have to stick the words in your mouth... you've already admitted to doing what he accuses you of:


Bamaboy was the only person who really gave me an honest solid answer, and I thank you for that. Towncar is the only other credible person that has owned an L7 (15 though).

see?? by your own admission, aparently only 2 of the responses were "good enough" for you.

the sub you own doesn't matter... subs are subs. if you know how to make one loud, chances are you can do it with any of them.

btw... i've got the 2006 t/s params... and i'm not sharing.
