Your vehicle is going to control the peak

Simple bro, play test tones, which one is loudest. Do by ear, if have meter or computer program and mic then do that way.

OP is wondering what frequency is the loudest in his vehicle. This is one function of the human ear, it can distinguish between loud and quiet. Maybe I'm completely missing the point though.

The ear is nowhere near an accurate tool for measuring spl.
Distinguishing between 'loud' and 'quiet' sure...
Distinguishing between 45 hz being the loudest note in his setup or 46hz - not so much...

Do a low level sweep and find out where you peak at.

The ear will get you close, within a few hz usually imo. I used computer software and a mmic, but if u don't have anything to test with then you should just be happy getting close.
