Looking to get the absolute best bass response out of my Rockford Fosgate P3-12D4s.


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow bassheads! I am looking to create a subwoofer enclosure for two Rockford p3 12s. The resonant frequency is 27.7hz. Is that what I should tune this box to? Or is there another frequency that will help with my goal of dominating those low notes? Thank you to all who respond! Have a good day! - Mason

Download WinsId on your computer. You can actually graph out a projected frequency response to certain criteria on a box. Then you can decide what you would like the most.

I am currently using kickers KickerU off my phone, and it already has given me a box with dimensions and a rendering for these subwoofers. I was just wondering if the resonant frequency is what I should tune the box to for maximum low note response. I mean, I'm asking if 27hz tune sounds good to someone with a lot more experience than me since I am a lot younger. But thanks for the info! I will probably start using this program, since it is better than using my phone.

The FS is an aid amongst other values in the T/S parameters that aid in the response a certain enclosure will give, but no, tuning to the exact Fs usually will not be the most absolute optimum tuning.

That seems like a crazy low FS for these drivers, with only 13.9mm Xmax you will want to tune low if thats your want from these. I had 2 in a qbomb 12XL box (yes I know prefab but I was newer yet) which is tuned to 42HZ (never double checked) and they loved it. I would tune to ~33 however I'm still wet behind the ears.
