    How would I test my tuning frequency without an SPL meter? which test tones should I try? Will the cone excursion from WinISD be something i should visually look for?

    basicly when the air speed in the port is at its peak, run sweep, from 10 to 100hz, a bunch of people here have MP3 sweeps in their links

    Your driver will move the least at the tuning point but I still recommend getting an SPL meter. If you are building your own subs/speakers it will be the best $35 you will spend.
