View Full Version : Frequency for Rap/Hip hop

Ok, Ive already started working on my box, but I have been experimenting with different port lengths. I listen to mostly rap/hip hop, and this is a chart from WinISD. The red line is tuned at 36.6. The green line is tuned at 32.2. The green line plays lower bass, but the red line has more gain. The ports are shorter with the red line. Which would you suggest? I like the punch factor of bass, and this is for a daily driver, for daily music.

What subs are you using?

Generally I would say, you should be within 30-32 range.

anyone else got any feedback/suggestions? What frequency is best for rap?

From what I understand, you would want your cutoff(-3db)no lower than 20hz, it could damge your sub. Also most rap and hiphop play those lower notes around 22-28hz and humans will only hear down to about 23hz
