I am building some boxes for a set of components for my room. I'm not sure what components i'm going to be using but the sub is an Adire audio 15 Brahma mkII in a 4.5cu/ft tuned to 28. I wanted to know what should i tune the boxes to?
Also how about airspace?
I already have some tuned to 70hz and they sound pretty good, i was thinking making these to about 80hz or should i be aiming lower.
Im pretty much looking for a genreal idea of where component sets play their lows. Thanks.

that depends alot on the woofer you are going to use, you might just be fine with sealed anyways

its just i really like how ported sounds and that it pretty efficient. Its also what i tend to see more in things like surround sound speakers and home audio stuff. i have only built sealed for a sub once, it did sound good and played low, im after higher bass.
I was thinking of getting these
MB Quart PCE 216
right now i have infinity kappa 60.7cs in the 70hz boxes

Get those for monitors. Cannot beat that value anywhere.
