Well, it's time to get rid of the POS ~1 cube sealed box, and step up to a ported for my L7. I figured I'd use one of kicker's box plans in their online manual, but don't know which to use. It'll be daily driven, never in a comp. They have one for 40hz, 37hz, 38hz.

I listen to all kinds of music, but all I care about bass with is rap, all other stuff it's no big deal. Looking for mostly loudness, clarity isn't much of a factor if you saw my truck.

So, what tunage should I use? I tried playing with the box calc, and the other designer program, but i'm a newb and don't know WTF i'm doing.

Or, should I use one of the boxes in the stickies, tuned at like 34 or 35hz, or I read 32 a lot when searching. I think they're for a round 12, I don't know how much my square L7 would throw the designs off.

Thanks for any input, i've been searching for the past week and have no idea where to go with it:blush:

If your into rap music I would go with a 37-38hz tuning :)
