    low tuning like 28hz and lower is SQ.
    35hz and up is more SPL

    Re: SQ, SPL enclosure help

    So if i want more SPL should i tune it more to like 40hz? Or will that make the systems have to much port noise?

    Right now I have a sealed box for 2 kicker s12l7's. I want a box thats gona be louder then the sealed now but still have sound quality. A box tuned around 32 hz would be good for sound quality and spl and still be louder then any sealed box right?

    so your stealing the thread.
    26hz is SQ enclosure so more like 75/25 or 80/20.

    SQ is opinionated.

    Low tuning generally gives you a flatter response with a loss of SPL...

    Re: SQ, SPL enclosure help

    35hz will be great for what your looking for


    you could always get an adjustable port or just plug it when you feel like different bass
