Looking to put a system in one of my vehicles. Looking to play mostly r&b, rap from late 90’s/2000’s. What tuning should I go for? Lil John, geto boys, too short, etc

It's really how you want it to sound, how low/high do you want it to play, how peaky at what frequency you want it to be. Lil john has some songs with some low notes in it. I think it's still about what you'd use today, sound is sound, bass is still bass, you know? Unless you want way more punchy bass like some old school hip hop had.

Prob 35 or up is what I’m looking for. I’m happy with the 34 hz in my truck, this would be for a future build
I really wouldn't go higher than 36 at all, so maybe try that and see if you like it. If you do an aero, you can always make it longer, so you could just play around with it.

I remember my brother had a prefab truck box back in early 90’s and I love it. Played same songs from then like The D.O.C. (Let the bass go) and doesn’t hit the same with my current 34hz box

I still bump that song and sounds good as ever.. I'm tuned to 32hz

Pair of 10w3v2 in a box a guy designed for me years ago on here RAMM designs I believe? Powering them with a Zapco st1650xmII does pretty good for 10's in a SUV.

I got a pair of 10" Dayton HO subs that should be here tomorrow and those are going in my truck, gonna try a down fire center console with port firing towards the dash, Hoping this turns out well.

Nice! I actually just got some box plans from Buck. They are for a pair of Dayton ho 10’s as well. Subs between bucket seats with port firing to wall behind drivers seat.

You're supposed to tune your box around your subs' specs. That said, if you can tune around 40hz you probably won't miss much material in that sort of music.

1200 for now. If I feel they need more, I’ll increase power
I have a mint Memphis 16-MCD1000 sitting here but only does 600 rms at 2 ohm. Might try and see if anyone wants to trade or sell and buy something that does full power at 2 ohms

When you doing your build? would really like to get your impressions..

this is what I will be building. I hope to buy a table saw this weekend so I can get started. I’ve made many boxes in the past but none required the angle cuts that this one will.

The 808 was popular in the 80's, 90's and into the 2000's

26209

"Notice that there is a huge presence in the 50-100 Hz range, which is right in the middle of “bass frequencies.” It is also audible in the 20-50Hz range, the “sub-bass” which is felt more than heard. And there’s a slow slope downwards all the way to the highest frequencies. This is the synthesized “impact” tone of the 808. Its sound is comparable to a digital click"
