    What to set my amp's Low Pass Filter and Subsonic Filter to?

    I have a Skar Audio SK-1500.1D wired down to 1 ohm on a Fi Audio BL 15'' in a ported box 3.25cf. I need help setting the the Low Pass Filter and the Subsonic. Here are the specs, Low Pass Filter @24dB Slope : 35~250Hz, Subsonic Filter @24dB Slope : 10~50Hz And if it helps i mostly listen to hip hop/rap. Right now idk whats its set to but when i turn the sub up it sounds like the sub is bottoming out?

    I'd put SSF at around 25 hz. What frequency are you playing that's causing you to bottom out?



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    also what is your box tuned too, it might be tuned pretty high and you might be trying to hit a frequency quite a bit below that tuning
