    What are your boxes tuned to ?

    I'm making a ported box, and wondering what would sound better, tuned to 32hz or 30hz? Im new to all this tuning; im clueless with everything about it. What are your boxes tuned to and how do they sound? Btw, the sub is a fi q 12.

    Mid 30s for a bit of everything. Most hip hop is recorded in the high 30s low 40s
    Most rock is low 30s

    Put it this way, Lil waynes stuff is low 40s. IMO 30 is to low for daily hip hop.

    What sub do you have? You should build the box to suit the sub and the music ya listen to.

    low 30s is kickdrum.

    There are a few hip hop songs that get low but its always the same artist. Jeezy or Zoe.

    With the q, you can play 25 and up easily......but where is your midbass playing down to? If you tune to 30, you won't play up to 80.
