I have 2 12" Memphis M3's running off a 1000d in a sealed box right now. I went to the Memphis web site and it says about 1.6 cu ft per box tuned to 38 Hz for a ported box. I want to go ported because I want it to be louder but what will a box sound like tuned to 38 Hz. Will I lose a lot of sq or just a little? What type of music sounds best and plays loudest with this? Sorry for the long post and thanks for any input!
I always have such a hard time deciding between sealed or ported. I've tried the my subs running off the same amps in both sealed and ported, and I love the gain in spl of ported, but I also love the sound of sealed boxes. SO hard to choose.
do yall think it would be tuned too high for daily listening? I listen to rap and some rock. thanks
its close, most rap doesnt go too far under 35, i thinkn you youll be alright, but if you build a box tune it a lil lower and it will sound crazy, when it hits lows, when my system was up and running, my box is tuned to 35 and i can make my whole shake like crazy.
so what happens when the music plays under say 35 or 38 hz? What does rap usually play at? Will a box tuned in the mid to high 30's make rap and rock louder? Thanks and sorry for all the questions but im new at this.
