    54hz port and box help!!

    My box port is tuned to 54hz...i set gain and everything according to the 54hz level and jesus its loud when you get around the 54hz tone but everywhere else is kinda lacking. Its a alpine type x 12" dvc 4 ohm getting a true 991rms as per volt meter...44ish volts ac. Is this a bad hz level to have a daily driver tuned to??? Everywhere i look everyone is around wayy lower like the 35hz range.

    Get down to @38-40hz Below 35 is pretty pointless if you listen to music besides test tones or slowed remix

    Ghetto bass music, if you like club music "NTS NTS NTS NTS!" then you want high tuning but for an overall tuning IMO is around 35hz.
