Default Box newbie here Need help what to tune to

hey guys i have a few questions. I was planning to buy to 15 SDC2.5 AQ and had heard mostly good thing but now am hearing they only hit high bass. The recommended box is suppose to be tuned to 36 to 38hz kinda high i think which scares me this is defiantly not what i want do think if i put the subs in a say 28 to 30hz box it would hit low just to get these questions out first its going to a hifonics 1660 witch realy puts out around 1200rms which is good for the subs and 2awg wire and batt in back. So would the subs be deep in that box or just sound like crap if not what are the box specs thanks guys

Put them in a box they're recommended in (3.5-4.5^3 @ 38hz) and they'll sound great and get low.. Trust me.

They're meant to play in boxes that are tuned higher, with the ability to play below box tuning.
