Everyone probably has their own version of "tight" bass but my definition is, the exact opposite of the low rumbling earthquake sound or the boomy rattle your trunk, P*ss off your neighbors sound.
The sub's excursion should short not long, while moving extremely fast and gives a heavy pressure feeling to your chest, soo much that you can barely breathe, even in the front driver's seat of a 4 door sedan"corolla xrs =/".
I'm pretty sure its a higher frequency sounding bass that i want. An Example would be the upper end bass of TI - What You Know About That , or As I Lay Dying - The Sound of Truth, there should be bass throughout most of the songs, some subwoofer setups I've heard had no bass going on in the song unless its a really low note even with the LPF set a lot higher. I would like to steer clear of those as much as possible.
I need a setup that is can keep up with a double bass pedal from a metal song with lots of chest peircing slam to go along with it. I've tried 8" midbass drivers from Alpine, it sounded okay but i need something a lot stronger, midbass drivers dont really cut it.
Also to get this sound is it best to go with a sealed box, ported box or do i need to spend extra for a bandpass box?
Thanks guys for your time in reading and responding in advance.
PS: i'm wondering if this is actually tight bass or is there another definition for it? Also, does it fall under the SQ or SPL category?
