for my subs, the company said they require the port to be tuned to 34hz
should i go for the company's thoughts on their subs, or should i tune the port to the 30's for a better daily driver? :confused::confused::confused:

34hz is a good tune for a daily, still drop low for most music. It really depends on the subs and their requirements. If the company suggested 34hz, I would go for it.

What kind of sub?

It'll sound best probably at 34hz for daily, because it will hit the most range of notes. If that's what you want, of course.

yeah i do like that. because i do listen to all kinds of music. not just one certain genre that only hits low notes. lol. im really tired of my probox that is tuned to the 40's.
if anyone wants a probox? dual 12's? im selling it.

How many cubes?
And 34 is a nice even number. My personal favorite is the 32 range.

i think the box is somewhere around 34 wide x 20 deep x 15 tall and i meant 142 dbs not weight lol

NO. i know you meant 142 deebeez. i was using heavy as a "slang" haha. i didn't know bostons can hit so hard for its price and quality. lol

well if the box is 34 wide and 20 deep and 15 tall. that would be perfect for my trunk yes? since my trunk is like 41 wide and 28 deep and 18 tall. lol

is it sub and port face rear?

hey twisted. i have a question.

well it would depend on the box. because i measured the trunk from the inside of my car/cabin and the beginning of the trunk. where the seats are. the height is at 17 inches exactly and your box heigh is 15. and with the subs. its goin to be roughly 16. would a height of 17 inches be okay? for excursion?

but i also measured the height of the trunk towards the back. and i have a coupple more inches available there. idk where the subs are placed in the box.

can you tell me if the subs are placed near the back part of the box. in the middle. or the front?

the rest of the dimensions i believe would fit.

it should be ok but i cant guarantee you will hit 140's thats just what his particular setup did. but it should still be loud

hit up vitveet, he makes some badasz boxes...And for tune the lower the better. First two boxes were 38Hz, cause i thought i liked SPL, but got my 32Hz box from vitveet, now i will never go back
