When tuning my amp, do I need to turn the volume up the entire way or to what?
Also when you tune a box, does that mean it playsanything below (box tuned 33 htz) 33 htz or anything above?

i know this might not be the exact way to go about it, but I put my gain down, and then put volume up to about the point where my speakers are playing as loud as i would ever listen to them, then adjust the gain to its highest setting without going overboard. Although I encounter no distortion, theres a point at which you can tell your going to far on the gain.. just gotta hear for it.

As far as tuning goes follow mgaidica's instructions. It maximizes your signal to noise ratio.

The tuning freq. of a box dictates where the subwoofer will be most efficient. The sub will play above and below the tuning freq. with a varying amount of roll-off on both sides. Playing freq. far below the tuning freq. can cause damage to your subwoofer. That's why the use of a sub-sonic filter is needed in some applications.

Jmac told me to set my subsonic filter to about 24-25 htz cuz my box is tuned to 33 htz. So I kinda guessed exactly where that is cuz it is to small to have numbers around the knob. Also I'm still a lil confused where to set my low pass filter?
