The Resonant Frequency Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay, I figured id Start a thread more for the newcomers to car audio and this site, for the sole purpose of finding a "GENERAL" peak Frequency of cars in this industry.

I know A lot of factors come into play when searching for your peak, Such as interiors and how much space your enclosure takes up in your vehicle.

But Giving the "GENERAL" frequency ranges, will help newcomers design and alter box designs if they are shooting for SPL/Bassrace setups.

The layout should be like that of the "Whats this songs frequency" Thread in the TUNES section. Blue is Make and Model Red is Peak Frequency of the car/truck with the added PURPLE color as the size and location of your enclosure.

Ill update the first post periodically to make it easier to find the info. Ill start it off with my previous and current setups of my truck....

great idea but how many people really know the resonate frequency and who just thinks its the box's peak frequency. might get flooded with bad info.
