how does this work exactly ? do you tune the system as best you can to the # or build a box tuned to ur vehicle ? ive never done any in depth research on this and im curious

well typically you would tune it to that frequency (to achieve the highest SPL), but of course 55hz is good tuning for daily purposes. just for comps. thats when interchangeable ports come in handy...

idk, maybe youtube some explorer bass comp vids and see what they say about box tuning (if anything) and that may give you some idea. roe has some vids too.
ppl may not like to disclose as it gives an edge in comps.
Being as ken states 55, and he competes, he may be closer then my guess.

Seems kind of high for such a large area. Is that frequency measured with damping applied?

it didnt seem to make much of a difference in the peak frequency although the dBs went down a little

my explorer isnt very sensitive to tuning frequency. at 36hz it was -.1 from 46hz. box volume and box design are the things you want to work on.

I think our 2 door Explorer is peaking around 45 hz and the 4 door peaks in the low 50's. The 2 door needs a lot of work, however. Our note may be off.
