    32hz good tuning for cvx?

    I see where people say 35hz,just wanted to know how would 2 cvx 12's work out in 4.4@32hz? Or should I just seal em in 1.5cubes each?

    Go 32 if you want to smash the lows.

    i wouldnt go any lower then 34hz, i have a T2 off of 1000 watts right now and when you listen to "play" by david banner, the lows are insane. I like the high's to be a little bit higher so i might tune my box higher.

    Re: 32hz good tuning for cvx?

    32hz all day

    For the most part, I always tune to 32 off the bat. The style of drivers I usually run are *** to the ears @ 32hz. Perfect blend of the lower end and the upper end with a good roll off to give it a smoother feel on the upper end.

    Driver specific of coarse

    And if you like the higher end more than tune higher. For the most part I have found ~34hz tuning is good for most rap music since a lot of it has more of an upper end, but I hate too much of the upper end so I always tune low.

    ^ Thats because most rap music peaks higher, so.....when your tuned low and are playing those peaky songs they have much less output since they are so far away from your tuning.

    I dont care for that end of the bass spectrum personally and I love a flat response down to the low end where the low end just comes alive

    Well when I had my BTL tuned at 35hz and dropped it to 32hz I noticed quite a bit of the low end come back. I lost the output on the upper end but the low end that I picked up was mucho better

    Generally speaking, if you want just a massive low end, I would tune right around ~30hz, if your into the upper end more, try 34~35hz, and if you want a good mix of the two with a focus on the low end I would stick to 32hz.

    Most of the time 32hz tuning is perfect, but your vehicle, enclosure, and drive choice can affect optimal tuning drastically.

    BTW I would personally would never to above 35hz for a daily musical setup. The only time I would ever think about tuning above that is for getting loud on the mic.
