    How do I tell what my ported box is tuned to?

    I bought it from a guy that is NOT easy to contact. Any way I can find out myself?

    Or instead of writing a RETARDED comment, you could be helpful...

    internal volume, port area, and port length, find those.

    Re: How do I tell what my ported box is tuned to?

    Thanks for your help but I literally know NOTHING about stuff like that. I think something is tuned wrong on my SPL part of the amp (or whatever part you tune according to what the box is tuned too) I had professionals tune my BX1500D while installing it and that sounded good. Now, I just hooked up the Nine.1 myself and I called Nine.1 to help me. The only thing I am not sure of the SPL level, or whatever it is called.... any input?

    You called 9.1? What's the decimal point button on the phone?

    You mean 911?

    Kinda bizzare, like an Enormaous Dyke - Acidburn.

    Re: How do I tell what my ported box is tuned to?

    The setting I need help with is the setting on your amp related to frequency of the box.... not sure if it is SPL or not... All I know is my subs aren't sounding like they were with my Bx1500D and now I have ALOT better amp

    Crossover? Anywhere below 80Hz, whatever sounds best.
