    6.5 inch port tuning

    I am building some boxes for a set of components for my room. I'm not sure what components i'm going to be using but the sub is an Adire audio 15 Brahma mkII in a 4.5cu/ft tuned to 28. I wanted to know what should i tune the boxes to?
    Also how about airspace?
    I already have some tuned to 70hz and they sound pretty good, i was thinking making these to about 80hz or should i be aiming lower.
    Im pretty much looking for a genreal idea of where component sets play their lows. Thanks.

    that depends alot on the woofer you are going to use, you might just be fine with sealed anyways

    Re: 6.5 inch port tuning

    its just i really like how ported sounds and that it pretty efficient. Its also what i tend to see more in things like surround sound speakers and home audio stuff. i have only built sealed for a sub once, it did sound good and played low, im after higher bass.
    I was thinking of getting these
    MB Quart PCE 216
    right now i have infinity kappa 60.7cs in the 70hz boxes

    Get those for monitors. Cannot beat that value anywhere.
