    Sealed boxes do not have 'tuning frequencies' like ported boxes do. All subwoofer systems (woofer + enclosure) have 'resonant' frequencies, but is not something you necessarily need to tune.

    If you want to know the resonant frequency of a sealed sub system, then you need to know...

    1. The following Thiele-Small parameters of the sub:
    • Vas
    • Fs

    2. The total internal volume of airspace inside the enclosure (Vbox).

    Use the formula:

    [(Vas/Vbox)+1]^sqrt * Fs = Fc (resonant frequency)
