Re: Diy sub

I hope I simmed it right on this quick one. It seems you will do well with each of those in a 3.5cuft(net) ported box tuned to 20hz. It looks like each can hit 112hz at 20hz with 1000 watts with a 3rd order highpass at 18hz. Two round ports 3.75 inch diameter and port length a little over 39 inches are needed. It's a compromise with many parameters at the border line but if I'm right you'll get it good down to 17hz.

So I. Can tune them lower than. There. Fs can I ask. How. You figured this out. Can I use. 4 in pvc

Check out WinISD.
3.75 inch pipe is the absolute maximum port diameter. Any bigger and the port gets long enough for its pipe resonance to distort the sub's sound.
I have attached the spl graph here from WinISD to see how the 20hz tuning was done.
The 30hz highpass on your amp is not useful for home theatre subs. Disable it and get a loudspeaker management system, put it before the amp to implement the 18hz 3rd order highpass (not 15hz) as well as a 4th order low pass which you will need at about 80hz..

Like a minidsp and 3.75 id pipe
