the music genre doesnt matter. signal is signal. recreating it accurately is recreating it accurately.

Hey Verticalscope, why the fuck do you force me to pay $500 a year for having a logo in my signature, then remove the ability to have said signature.. I'm wondering when one of you will get back to me about a refund. Thank you

Actually look up one of the house curves. There are several on this site. These are general tunes for tuning. Doesn't matter what kind of music.

I have 2 tunes, one when i want to listen to SQ and pure sq, the other one is happy SQ, thats when i want it loud, clean, accurate, and for my enjoyment only.

Default Re: What port frequency do ya recommend for Rap/Hip hop/dance/edm/electronic/ r&b mus

There's no particular frequency you should target for Hip-Hop. What you want is a flat response from the cab anyway regardless of roll-off point which will only exist within a set box size. Parametric EQ cuts can then be applied once in the car. The fact that you're going with ported to begin with will have a major advantage over sealed with that genre. That said, anything from 30-39hz would be fine.

Man & Machine... Power Extreme!

You're kind of missing everyone's point. There is no recommended frequency.

In addition, without knowing what subwoofer you are planning to use and how much space you have in your trunk for an enclosure, you may as well be asking what the tire you should use, but not telling us if it is for a car, SUV, truck, bicycle etc.

Can't tune for a favorite genre, could tune for a favorite track or cd if it sounds like crap sometimes. But then the rest will not be ideal.

Some head units have EQ settings for genres, but I've never liked any, Rock EQ seems the only one that makes all music sound better to me any way, (the iPod phone playback)
Car head units? I have not found one preset that I can say is better than flat EQ?

The music already has unrealistic non musical bass to begin with and the original bass response tuned may disappoint the bass heads.

All you can do is have good Dynamat, good components that can play loud and clear, and all the installation basics.

At the end of the day, it should sound good to you, not to everyone else., and tuning for it, most likely will destroy the rest of the music types available.

30 HZ is the number you want. The Fs of that woofer is 29.6 and if you are listening to EDM, you want as low a tuning frequency as possible without going below Fs, so 30 HZ is where I would tune it. One 4 " port that is 12" long and you are golden. If you want two ports, go 3" and make them 15" long.

It would be one port on the side of the box firing to the side

If you are doing a truck style wedge box with a single port, I would likely do a slot port instead of round as it will be easier. A single 4" port is approximately 12.5 in^2, so make your slot port 12.5 in^2 and 12" long.
