Default Home subwoofer box tuning.

I'm looking to build an enclosure for my home stereo setup but I've never really done that much with home audio. Whats a good tuning to build the enclosure to?

Are you watching movies or listen to music? Movies, then 20hz or lower.

Designed for movies but I'll probably play some music through it too. Really that low?

You want home theaters to be tuned to 18-25hz(25hz being the most), because the size of the room it will seem like its tuned high, since the woofers have a huge area to reflect off, so if you have them tuned high, those sound waves will never reach the walls and reflect off to fill the room with sound, its not the best way to describe it, but you should get the idea!!

big box, low tunning. thats what i allways preach for HT. the 25/28 range will give you a good blend. mine is tunned to 21hz and plays both music and movies great. or course i got a lot of room and i'm running a T-line.
