    If you follow the instructions to the tee, you will be fine. Unless you want to personalize your box to your taste. Like size and tunning.

    Because for the average joe blow that is a good streat tunning. They don't EXPECT there customers to know how to properly tune a box so they give them a safe number of 40hz. Also tunning lower requires a longer port, which with the limited box building skills of the average consumer would complicate things.

    Re: tuning question

    40hz is still a streetable tuning #.....but more on the "SPL" side of the tuning. Not great for much other than rap, but still liveable for the majority of bassheads. A buddy I have that works for an authorized JL dealer had his 12W7 tuned to something like 42hz. 28-32hz is more of a sound quality ported setup.
