View Full Version : tuned to 26hz at 3.75 cubes

Yea, I think I tuned it too low. That is what it is now. If I modify it here is my idea.

If I cut the inner board to 11 inches it comes out to 36hz. thats 11x2x13 . sq port area =? I dont know

the subs do get low. I dont know what the freq cut off is.

It seems I may be getting unsatisfied with the bass.... Time for more?

I figure I should try to modify the box first.

If I could afford to, I would buy a new amp. That might help, but if the subs need different box then that should be first. I think.

Let me know you ideas please.

Nevermind. I will figure it out.

Just seeing what people think about a box tuned to 26. I wanted good low exstension but it doesnt hit as hard as I hoped. I play the low bass cd's like Bass305. and rap and metal. So I need a well rounded box. I am seriously considering a sealed box. 3 cubes.

tune to like 35 if you wana be well rounded 26 is super low

I realize that now. I was drunk when I conceived the idea to go 26hz. I my first post I noted what I will be attempting before I choose a sealed enclosure.

tuning below 30hz is kinda silly in a car....before you drastically change to 35hz, try 33hz. Should put you right where you want to be.

also maybe try diff box sizes a 2cf box tuned at 35hz will sound total diff than 3cf tuned to 35hz as you will get a punchy sound with the smaller box as it prob peaks high db with the smaller box
It might be what your looking for might not be

26Hz huh?? That should be your home theatre sub now:)

I like my subs at 28hz right now. Really helps keep the midbass up front because the subs can't even play anything above 60hz(which works well for me).

Gives you that separated sound. I love that. just missing the PUNCHY hard hitting DBZ.

Well, like a ******* I am, I made a thread about calculating sq port area. I think I did that wrong too. came out to like 738
