    big ported box harm the sub?

    will it harm my sub (15"arsenal) if i put it in an enclosure: 4.8cu.ft net tuned@32hz


    they recommend 3.5@28hz


    using winisd itll be louder in the low-end, which i want, but will it harm the sub?

    that's a huge box. I'm not sure if it'll harm the sub, but the power handling will surely drop

    then i suggest you go with the recommended specs.


    and why did you have a box tuned to 49hz? taht's uber high IMO.
