Re: What makes a subwoofer bottom out?
^^Yup this, since your tuned to 37hz playing down to 30hz is gonna make the sub lose control pretty easily. Especially if you don't have your subsonic filter tuned appropriately. My box for 2 SA-8v2's is tuned to about 35hz and playing rack city I get a crazy amount of excursion on the low note (29hz) because its starting to get a little farther below the box tuning than the sub likes. It doesn't bottom out but I'm sure if I tried to push it a little further it probably would. You need to build a more efficient and lower tuned box to be able to handle those really low notes better with that kind of power.
