i have two xfl 12s and audiopipe 1000 ds on each on and the box that i have now the drops are hard but
i want it lower though
so i just wanted to know if i get a box tuned to 32 hz will i still get those good hard hitting drops or will it just be more shaking than anything?
or if anyone has any advice to help me reach my goal feel free to reply thanks

I have ~2k on a pair of XFLs tuned at 33hz IN A TRUNK and have plenty of lows. I can hit down to about 25hz with authority and shake the dash.

Honestly, other than the enclosure - proper electrical, install, and power is your best friend when going for lows.

but does yours still hit hard or is it just alot of flex and less hit?

It still hits hard. Your ears don't pick up the frequencies as well so they may seem a little quieter, but you can definitely feel the pressure.

I had an AP amp and had no problem playing in the low 20s being tuned at 34 hz

Have the subs 3" from your head, and swap in a class AB 2 channel and you can hear the difference.

32-33 hz works well!
