450 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 450edo or 450ed2), also called 450-tone equal temperament (450tet) or 450 equal temperament (450et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 450 equal parts of about 2.67 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/450, or the 450th root of 2.

## Theory

450edo is consistent to the 7-odd-limit. It can be considered for the 2.3.5.7.13.17.29.31.37 subgroup, where it tempers out 651/650, 1666/1665, 1887/1885, 2016/2015, 2295/2294, 5916/5915, 4901/4900 and 14229/14210. It supports decal and varuna.
