Is this for competitive SPL or just daily ground pounding or what?

Basically... one you should care about a peak frequency and the other you shouldn't.

MOST cars peak a little higher then tuning frequency.

If you are going for a loud daily driver just tune to where you like it and call it a day.

If you want to win comps you will need to test and retune more then a few times.
A good frequency for daily would be tuned to 32-36 but you can really tune anywhere.
If you change the frequency you will change the output at the other frequencies.
So generally tuning higher you lose low end
Tuning low you keep the low end but lose efficiency

And if I tune to 38 hz it will be loudest at like 45hz on the me meter right? And play about 7 hz above 38 best and play down to 31 without tearing the sub up right
