sealed isnt tuned to anything. are you asking what frequency your subs peak at in that box?

^^That....there is no tuning frequency for a sealed enclosure

Well what I want to do is configure my amp for optimal performance. And I was to do the -3db test tone and I need to figure out at what hz I need to download it and play it.

anything below your LPF and above your ssf will work...

no idea. what subs/amp/car do you have?

I have a 1200w brutus amp and 2 12" 500 rms zeus subs on an 01 honda civic.

i would just use a tone around 35-45 hz.

but i think there are other (easier) ways for setting gains too.

I've been researching this **** and if you could enlighten me on easier ways then go for it.
