    Oh yeah, I remember you. I live about an hour from birmingham. Steve said there will be more postings by either next month or march. I'm planning on going up to tennessee quite a bit this year for shows. I'm running in street 2 this year. What class are you in?

    As long as your batteries meet the requiment for AS classes, you should be good. It's posted on the website. Something about the cca specs and dimensions.

    Re: Davecubs14's spl thread

    My 2400 was about 5 years old and quit on me. I swapped out for xs power batts but for the price, look into cheaper stuff. They're good don't get me wrong. And yeah, my alt was the best addition to my system cause I don't drop below 14v idle.

    So today. Took carpet off the top and front of the box. Ducked taped the sub. Moved the ground from the seat belt bolt to the battery.

    The ground lost a lot. But all in all, I didn't really gain anything today cause I started with a 145.5 today. Hmmm....

    That's a depressing # for a 15". Have you tried changing aiming and position of the box? Good for 2db or more in my jeep just aiming the port variations.

    Tell me about it. I'm about to start all over again. I'm about to list everything I have and what i've done! Lol. Everytime I position it differently, i'll lose. Best set up is as far back as possible. So if yo're wondering how much I gain from moving all the way forward to back, it's around .5, .6. I'm about to take off my head liner and take off my 2nd layer of deadener and see what happens...

    Re: Davecubs14's spl thread

    So as I expected. My score went down because of my batteries. I charged them, burped it today, 145.96. Does it count as a 146!? Maybe...? No. Just turn it up a couple more clicks even if the red light comes on to get this.



    And for giggles. Throw it in the kick!

PLus, its an AC meter, not even a dang termlab!!!

    Re: Davecubs14's spl thread

    So today, I took off the carpet of the prefab box, and you could see through EVERY crack. Hmmm....So I sealed it up. I noticed that one of the pvc pipes were loose so I sealed it up and tried the 4 4" ports again. Ports are 13" long.

    Score!.....146.3! The slot port was still louder. It has ~64 sq in. port area. And the leaks sure didn't help it. So I think I need more port area 2 8" ports? Mhmm. Yes? Lol. Or a single 12!

    Yup, no screws or anything. I wonder if these boxes can last more than a week!

    Ok. Sealed the box, and rounded the slot port. Gained .2. Though my meter was acting funny. Either way, a gain is a gain. Sitting @ 146.6 now....and climbing
