    There are a lot of people here that can put it into better words than I but here goes. Tuning a sub refers to ported enclosures. The port or tube is a specific length and Dia. changing the length will result in a lower tuning. When you tune to say 25hz output below that frequency will be severely rolled off. in other words you won't get much usable bass below the tuning freq. But a higher tuning frequency usaully means a 2-3db more output an octave higher, around 35-50hz. So it depends what you want. More output in the mid/sub bass or low frequency extension.
