I bought two 15" Dayton Reference Subs rated at 500rms.

I'm going to power them with a Behringer ep2000

This is my first sub build and I've been fooling around with the sonotube calculater. I can get my hands on a 12 foot 18", but I'm afraid I can't make two sonosubs out of one 12 foot sub.

I'm trying to get a 20" or 24" sonotube for my build. What would you guys say is the most ideal effective volume and tuning hz? I don't need to hit high SPL's, but I do want high quality bass for music and movies. I see a lot of guys tuning their subs boxes to 14.5 hz, but I'm not sure if I need to go that low. I'm also leaning towards an 8 inch flared port.

What's your guy's thoughts on shooting for around 320 liters with a 19hz tuning? Anyone want to make a claim for me to tune it lower?

I'll appreciate responses, thanks.

personal preference. a little more spl above 20 or a little more extension.

i'd tune them to around 16hz and just be happy. :-)

Listen. It's All Good.
