I downloaded a 50hz test tone and used a DMM to set my amp to 30.6V although it said I could do 31.6, but Decided 1 less would be good on the safe side.
Used this formula website.

http://www.sengpielaudio.com/calculator-ohm.htm

Resistance 2
Watt 500

I listen to rap about 80% of the time so is that a proper hz to go by?

Thanks all,
BTW have a guy lined up to buy my POS sony amp tmrw Very Happy

For rap, I'd go lower HZ

depends on your setup, but my sub boxes and amp are set to hit 34hz frequencies, so its tuned for 34 or 36hz.

Id try and get closer to 40 ish if I were you..depends on your setup though

The type of music is irrelevant. What you need to do is go with the lowest frequency the speakers will generate.

Its not irrellevant. If you listen to a lot of double bass metal, 34hz tones are almost too low, and should be cut out.

Although my head has been in a fog today, and I was referring to the high pass filter on the amp, not the tune setting for gain or anything else.

Well did some reading, my box is sealed so theres no way of tuning it.
Also is it bad to have your LPF all the way down.
Reason I ask is because every video I see where guys set their gains with a
dmm say turn ur LPF all the way up, but after I set my gains and my LPF is all the way up it sounds like crap.

Secondly, when I do set my gains, I set it the vol @ 22 on my HU, Idk what the max is but I listen to it @19-20. When I set the gains @ vol 22 the DMM read 31.0.
My max is 31.6. but when I dropped the volume to 19 to where I normally listen to it the DMM read 15.6. Is that anything to worry about? Am I shorting changing my amp and sub?


Thanks
