    Since a low tuned box is louder to the ear why doesent everybody tune to like 28hz for daily driver? What are the Pros & Cons for a low tuned(~28hz) box

    Not all 28hz box's would be louder to ear.

    Songs with higher bass notes?

    Because each sub will react differently in any given box. Due to the speakers design and environment it is used in.

    The roll off in a low ported box would be a lot lower due to the tuning frequency. In most cases it would yield a little more low end output. But less output in the higher frequency range.

    Think smoother transient response. Much better in a SQ point of view.

    Think hiphop.

    A lot of songs have bass in the 40hz range. If you have a lower tuned box, the output @ that range is decreased.

    It really depends on what musical taste the user has. Also what speaker they are using.

    like around what freq would you consider higher frequency?

    That depends on enclosure volume. You would have to graph up a response graph to map it.

    http://www.soundsplinter.com/rlp12_p...formation.html

    Look at the ported response graph for the RL-p12. You can see the response difference between each enclosure.

    Keep in mind this is theoretical and in car response will more than likely be different.

    Hence environment^

    besides 28hz what else would be considered tuned low?

    Re: Pros & Cons for a low tuned(~28hz) box

    tune 30-34 hz - should be ideal for rap and hip hop.

    It's all opinion.

    IMO anything below 32hz is low tunning. And anything above 37hz is high tunning.

    would a 32hz tuned box be better for hiphop?
