OK so i understand about tuning and how to tune a box...

I also understand that the manuf. suggested frequency is supposed to be the most efficient for that sub, however to my experience for instance, my sub is suggested to be tuned at 33hz. But 33 hz is not that loud, it seems like upwards of 36-40 is MUCH louder.

am i not understanding sometihng correctly because i thought that suggested tuning was supposed to allow it to be the loudest that way...

No it's usually the best for music and all around performance. Tune higher if you want it to be louder but don't expect awesome lows.

Even though you won't hear the lower frequency as loud as the higher frequency, you will feel alot more vibration and air. The sound that you do hear is a better quality and more people around you can "experience the feeling" of the power of your subs. You should go to you tube and listen to some of those comp ready high tuned boxes, although you hear the boom more, it sounds like ***.
