car peaks at 41hz id need alot more port area to lower my tuning i think like 40 inches length would drop me to like 45 hz
ive never heard a box tuned so high but it can't sound that badly on rap music can it?

Rap is all lows 50 wud be horrible. Maybe for another genre. The first prefab i had was tuned to about that much and it got loud for higher bass notes around that freq. but the lows were nonexistant and u notice that in a lot of songs

but i heard though that hdc3s still hit lows fairly decently in a semi high tuned scenario i had a copper off a 1500 with 3 torn spiders tuned to 40hz and the lows were amazing still im unsure trying to do something different thats all

you wont have any lows and the sub will over exert itself on the low frequencies. I dunno how high your subsonic goes on that amp but I'm sure you would have to jack it up as high as it would go to prevent your subs from flopping on the low notes. it will sound like crap anyways

your best bet is to make 2 boxes. One for daily 35-40. and your spl at 50, trust me at 50 you won't be picking up much low notes

subsonic filter max's at 60hz i guess ill think of something else still waiting on my alt anyways

1) At 50 Hz you subsonic would be optimal at 40Hz so bye bye to anythnig below that cuz your sub would never see it.
2) There would be no control what so ever for the sub and it would rip itself apart.

Have you considered 2 or 4 ports. Im sure 4 3" ports would work just fine.

Worst idea evar for a daily box. Stick with 40hz if you want to tune high, though I'd stay around 35hz with the HDC.

any suggestions for a box on an hdc3-a10 on 2 saz1500s strapped at 1ohm geared towards rap/spl

1.25ft^3 after displacements, full length 4" aeroport for a 37-38hz tune.

You will hate it. I ran AQ HDC3's at 48hz for a little while and hated it. And theres no point to tune that much higher than your peak freq. I would suggest a 38-40hz tuning. Ive done many builds for these (1 18 in a wall @ 36hz, 1 12 in a truck @ 38hz, my car 2 10's in trunk 40hz and i hated my 48hz tuned box). What size sub is it? a 10" it looks like from your sig? Also what car?

50 hz is going to sound awful. Be a man and do 30 hz.

why an 8" port for a single 10?

and if your set up truly peaks at 41Hz there is no reason to tune at 50Hz.

Do a single 4-6" external aero tuned around 45Hz and start cutting off 1" at a time until you get your loudest number. Then do a 2nd aero tuned around 35Hz if you want to play a lot of rap for daily.

An NO on tuning to 30Hz like someone suggested as there's no point in doing that. If it sounded good either your tuning was miscalculated or it could have sounded better and got louder tuned higher...

My wall was tuned to 36Hz for daily and I played Decaf's 29Hz version of "trunk bang" full tilt no problem and did nice hair tricks.
