    correct. some walls can be further back. but most need to be as far up as they can

    i have no clue where you got this.

    FWIW, I got my best numbers at my lowest tune and the best experience from a sub stage when I did subs and port forward and sealing the trunk off. I will never fire into a trunk again. The only real way to know what will meet your goals is to build and test. I gained 3+db even after dropping my tuning to 28Hz after forward firing and sealing the trunk off.

    I agree 100%. It seemed to smooth out a nasty dip I had and was much easier to blend with my front stage. I wasn't chasing numbers though. I never did get to try another enclosure with a higher tune to see what it could do. I was just too happy to change it.

    im at 32 and i had to counteract the low tuning with a smaller box and larger port so i could still at lease halfway have my peak in the 40s but it seemed i dont oh well

    If you are happy with the way it sounds and it meets your needs for output, no need to do anything. Even the best laid plans act totally different once you get everything installed and playing. Why were you shooting for 40's? Output?

    He posted in on Caco the other day. Of course, its a general rule, and not every single car will follow it.
