How do you know what freq. a ported box is tuned at? i have a 6 cf box with a 6x10 port. the port is 14.5 inches deep. I built it to these specs because that is what kicker told me would be best for my truck. any idea what frequency that is?
if u get a cd that plays just tones u can watch ur subs. as u play the lows the subs will have a large excersion. as u play higher it will move less and less until i hits a note and it looks like the speaker is not moving at all. then as u play higher u will see it starts to move more again the note that the sub moves less is what ur tuned too.
its a simple test and i think a lot of people don't know about that
Dont listen to him.. Do you want the Solo X 18 for burps only? Or for a daily setup? If I give you the specs for the SPL only (competition) you will not be able to play music with low bass w/o taking a chance on damaging the sub. A daily setup with a lower tuned enclosure made for more SQ would be my recomendation. It is an 18" Solo X, for christ's sake... It will be loud as long as you have enough power to move the beast. I can design a box for the 18" if you like... I need to know what vehicle and the max dimentions of the space where the box will fit.. Also how much power you are providing for the sub.. This is for free of course. .
