    Never tune an AQ that low. DD and AQ light high tuning and will still hit good low. Tune 36 at lowest, AQ recommends 40 and I think DD recommends 37.

    Re: Aq 18s

    wow thanks for the heads up did look at the site yet so would 7 cubes at 40 htz still hit say a 32 htz tone ok ? I am a flex guy but like it loud and know the higher the tune the louder it normally gets

    Re: Aq 18s

    Personally I'd go around 38hz but... that's the resonant frequency of my car so that gets loud. I think you should be okay anywhere from 38-40 for what you want.

    Re: Aq 18s

    Oh, I also forgot to say 7 is probably too small for two of these, AQ and DD call for very close specs to each other and DD 18's are supposed to have 6 per.

    Re: Aq 18s

    Should be nice. just don't go that low on the tuning. 35hz should be low enough.
