    Tuning Boxes?

    Sorry I'm a newbie to all this so don't laugh. What do you guys actually mean when you ask what the box is tuned too? And how do you go about checking the tuning and changing it. I want to make my box get lower. I have a ported bandpass with 3 12" L7's.

    Re: Tuning Boxes?

    You cant just change the tuning of your box. Tuning is determined by the box size, and port area. If you have a bandpass box in the first place, get rid of it. Have someone make you a box for your subs, or get someone to design one.

    next time

    Re: Tuning Boxes?

    its a ported bandpass if that makes any difference. The port goes straght to the port cut out in my rear dash. For the car I have those boxes get the best sound.(from what Ive heard) I have a 96 Impala.

    And where did you hear this, Circuit City? That is BS... And just about any box with a hole = ported.

    Re: Tuning Boxes?

    I have had Ported boxes custom built, and they sound like shat. Everyone I know with 94-96 impala's that don't have that format I talked about, there system sounds like asss. I have had alot of car audio guys say what you said but are always proven wrong. Those cars just have a shat load of dead trunk space. I'm not i'm saying I know more then you so I don't want to go back and forth, but trust me I know what sounds good and convetional boxes ported or bandpass sound WEAK!

    Re: Tuning Boxes?

    a sealed box with the subs firing straight at the Port in my rear dash, with a ported cover to conseal(sp) the pressure the port is like a tunnel on top of the box going straight to the port in my rear dash. Thats the best I can explain it. Someone tell me how to post Pics. and I'll show you guys. My shat slaps hard I'm not going to lie but I wanted to see if it could get lower. The only thing I think that would be better is if the subs were firing towards the back seats.
