    LPF : 80hz
    SSF : call the box maker and ask what the box is tuned to then set your ssf a couple hz below.

    No, you need more info.

    Measure the port height, width, and depth.

    Aslo, needed is the model of the sub you are going to put in it.

    Play a disc with tones that keep going lower in frequency, something like Bass Mekanik that tells you what frequency is playing. Start with 40hz or so. Watch the driver excursion as the tones get lower, you are looking for minimum excursion. The system will have strong output but the cone will not be moving very much at all, this is the tuning frequency. Set your SSF within about 5hz beneath your tuning frequency and max out your gain.

    Just kidding, don't max out your gain.

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
