    Is there a "standard" tuning freq for single 10" ported enclosure.

    I am new to subs and I am trying to wrap my head around ported enclosures. Is there a hz that would be considered "standard" for a single 10" enlosure? I am looking at a box that matches the SA-10s 1.0-1.25 ported enclosure size and is tuned to 42hz. Is that a good match up? Thanks ahead of time for the help.

    That would be a high tuning for a daily setup. Most people tune around 32 to 35 hz for daily



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    "Sound Quality : 20 up to 28 Hz.
    Sound Quality Loudness : 30 up to 35 Hz
    Sound Pressure LeveL SPL : 40 up to 80 Hz (test tones are played rather than normal music, to avoid Low frequencies, which damages the speaker).
    Its commonly used for competition propose. and not everyday driving.(unless you like listening to test tones for everyday driving)."

    So according to this thread, I can actually damage the speakers by running it in this type of box? As the hz decreases, what is happening to the sound as I would hear it while driving? Does it get quieter but more accurate? Is 42hz just going to distort my music?

    Lol. Where did you get that?

    Yes, you can damage your sub by playing too far below tuning. The sub will start to behave like it's not even in a box and just start flapping around (unloading). That's what a subsonic filter is for. To prevent that and it's set according to the tuning of your box.
