what suggestion to set HPF

Good evening

I am almost done with buiding a micro marty and i need to tune the port to 23 Hz ..........I will be using a Behringer EP4000 to drive that sub so my question is what do you recommend to set the HPF to 23 Hz ??

Thanks

Alain

Re: what suggestion to set HPF

I'm no expert but I thought you'd set it 1/2 octave below your tuned frequency, so 17 Hz?

I'm sure someone with more knowledge on the subject than me will be able to provide you with a better answer.

MiniDsp is what most folks use when they don't have onboard DSP.

I assume that when you modeled your sub that you know where to set the HPF, I'm not sure what you mean by "Tune the port" though.

Buying more cheap stuff to get better sound is like challenging a dragon with a pocket knife.

Are you looking for a DIY solution or something off-the-shelf?

Off the shelf unless the DIY solution is easy to implement

I use a balanced minidsp 2x4. I use it to set hpf for my ported ultimax 18. I can set it at anywhere from 10hz and up at whatever slope you want. You can experiment with it get it where you want
Excellent product

Another option is the Yamaha YDP2006 digital parametric equalizer. It has 24 dB/octave HP and LP filters. Not as flexible as the miniDSP, but easier to operate and connect. And it looks good in an equipment rack.
