    i would personally do 4cubes at 32hz, too low and you use lose output, too high and you lose bottom end, but the Q's are very bottom end heavy to begin with so below 30hz tuning isn't really necessary. i'd go 4cubes at 32-33hz, but im no expert just my opinion

    I have a box, 4 cubs at 32 hz...um...it slams pretty nice.

    It's with aeroports and stuff. Cost me about $75 to build.

    Just wondering... why did you need to post this in two different forums?

    ^x2... 3.8ish at 30-31Hz should work very well+sound great...and make sure to have around 45-50sq inches of port and you'll be golden

    If mine comes in tomorrow like it should I'll let you know how it sounds.... my box is 4 cf w/ aero ports @ 32 hz. I think that is the most common box for it.

    Re: box for my 15" FI Q

    What about the size of a sealed box for the same sub???

    Not trying to hi-jack the thread, but no need in posting another to ask a variation of the same question.

    Thanks everybody.....
