    well i don't have the technical jargon of it, but in a ported box you set right below box tuning so the sub doesn't over extend its self. in a sealed box you don't have that problem. a sealed box allows the sub to play those low frequencies.

    Re: tuning

    It has to do with the suspension of the subwoofer, if you do not have a SSF on and you're playing below the tuning frequency, there will be no resistence to the subwoofer so it will just be flapping along..

    This is just something I read somewhere, and I'm sure it's not EXACTLY right, but that's the idea of it. Set the SSF just ABOVE your tuning frequency so you don't get below it.

    that's basically what it is, but he has a sealed box and no tuning frequency. you don't have to set it above. at or slightly below will be ideal.

    Re: tuning

    Yes with the sealed box just turn it off, sealed can safely play any hz (obviously within limits)

    I always set mine either right at, or if I'm kind of leary on the adjustment, I set it right above.. just to be safe

    Re: tuning

    even in a sealed box if your sub seems to struggle alot with the low notes you can turn it on and try to jsut cancel out those in particular.

    Re: tuning

    set it to like 25Hz, you most likely cant hear those. so just block them out.

    If your box is sealed, there is no tuning for it.

    Re: tuning

    A sealed box does not require the use of a SSF correct.

    But if you wish to use it set it @ 25hz. Not much music is produced with frequencys below that. Only a select few.
