    Tuning for Rap

    Hey guys! What's going on?

    I listen to almost exclusively rap, especially bass heavy stuff like Three 6 Mafia, Project Pat, Pastor Troy, etc...

    What type of tuning do you guys recommend for my new ported box?

    It is a daily driver, not competition or anything...

    If it matters, it is for a 2005 12" Kicker CompVR

    Re: Tuning for Rap

    Im thinking maybe like 32 hz...

    how does that sound?

    Will it be a big difference between that and say 35 hz?

    Re: Tuning for Rap

    I saw do not go that low.
    40 hz or 38hz is awesome for rap. I switched from a 40 to a 35hz box and it was soo bad. Most rap songs dont go below like 35 anyway.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    No
    If you only listen to rap, tune about 35.
    37-40

    Anyone else agree?

    Or does the majority still think 30-35hz is best?

    Re: Tuning for Rap

    I was in the process of tuning my box to 30 hertz but now that I read the stuff in this thread I'm probably going to change to high 30's or probably just wait for more responses

    My sealed box is tuned to like 37hz and it sounds great on the few rap songs I've played.
