    Mine is at 33hz and I listen to mostly rap and it plays 95% of music well. The other 5% are extreme lows (like in Put On and Bass I Love You).

    well, I wouldnt call it common either... I'd say it's in the bottom 5%. Either way, my single 12" R in a box tuned to 33hz doesnt play the lowest in Put On or BiLY very well

    my 2 8's tuned at 32hz can play that note in "i put on". they dont play it WELL, but you can hear it a bit. im also only running ~600W to them. if i was to build another box i would tune to 28hz tho.

    I'm tuned to 34. But, I hink 32 would be better. keeps you from bottoming out on those low notes.

    Tuning that low is pointless for type rs. I wouldn't go lower then 35-37. Take advantage of what they are good at
