    from what I've seen posted, most usually reccomend low tuning, like 25 hz low.



    AVH-P4900, Overdrive, Epic 160, PPI 1000/2, Pro 60s, a3000db, SSA Icon 12, Fisher Custom.

    If you're building a box, the 20's are a good place for the tune.

    A lot depends on the particular driver, it's mechanical powerhandling in the particular enclosure, and your goals, tuning frequencies from as low as 15hz to ~25hz are common with large diy enclosures.
