Ok, I'm making a box from the free box design sticky, and I was wondering how to know what Hz to set the box at.The specs on the kicker say Resonance Frequency[Hz] 33.3 and minumum cu.ft for a vented box is 1.25 and the max for SPL is 2.25 so if I want it for good sounding bass would a box of 2cu.ft @ 32Hz be good?Or would a box of 1.75 cu.ft at 28hz be better?Im a newb and this is going to be the first time building a box for my subs.Thanks

A lower tune will give you more output on the lows. The higher you go the more you lose on the low end but it will meter higher.

Thanks, and as for the cu.ft would [email protected] be a good match for the sub.Sorry for all the ?'s Also I have two of these so would it be beter to make two boxes or one big box for both of them?

i would do one box with a divider so it will be two chambers and do subs in the middle and a port for each chamber,
that way if you blow one sub you can still use the other one while you get the blown sub replaced/repaired
