    Re: whats the safest frequency

    You tune your box to what you listen to. The "safety" aspect of the tune is that you need to tune the box to lowest note you will play them at. When you play your subwoofer below the tuning frequency, it doesn't make much noise and the port doesn't regulate the subwoofer's movement, and if you're driving them hard, you can rip the cone, surround, or spider from over excursion. As bones said, 35 Hz is a pretty common tuning. Unless you're trying to wang on some really hardcore chopped and screwed songs, 35 Hz is a great tuning frequency.

    Getting super low is fun, body panels = waves in the ocean lol.


    I've always wanted to build like a box tuned to 20 Hz and try it just for the lolz. I wan't it to sound like an earthquake rumble. It'd be barely audible and would **** in the rest of the sound range, but it would be hella cool to show off.

    Actually, tuning low (in most cases, depending on the drive, suspension, etc.) will give it a flat response so that it's not boomy. The point is never actually get to the tuning frequency, so you just ride on the downward sloping curve, in terms of port gain.

    so do it, youd be surprised.

    now as far as the sub the op is working with, tuned @ 36-37 that thing pounds and for some reason it has great authority down low still

    Re: whats the safest frequency

    Its all dependent on your vehicle.


    Example, I tuned a few boxes too 40hz in my Explorer and it was no audible difference on the low notes from a couple I did at 32 or 35hz, but the low tuned ones did lack on upper end.

    I saw some website where some guy used some of that cheap sono tube stuff for pouring concrete and made some folded/curved really long aero ports, tuned it down really crazy low, like 20 Hz and then put legs on it and made it into like a table or whatever and used it as the subwoofer for his house. I'm guessing he tuned it that low so that explosions during movies, which are really low frequencies I'm guessing, wouldn't blow out the subs. That sono tube stuff is dirt cheap and I've got some extra MDF laying around, I just may go buy some cheap pvc fittings and give it a try

    Did you design the horn yourself or did you just find the design somewhere, those are really interesting, I would love to know how those are calculated up.
