    way to many to begin to list, just start trying stupid stuff. how high the head rests are seat position, depending on which orginazation, which and how many windows/doors open and how far.

    getting the the point your worrying about 1/10's it just takes hours of testing.

    Re: Tips on gaining 1/10s

    every car and every install reacts differently, the only way to really know what works for you is to get on the meter for a few hours and just try different things, clean/wax the dash on a hot day and see a .1-.2 gain (ive seen that happen a few times) change the box position slightly turn the enclosure to different positions to see which one it loads better in.

    ive seen people move the seats all the way forward, remove the headrests, flip the passenger seat forward, and flip the drivers seat forward as far as you can with you in it

    Also try flipping the floor mats upside down so the rubber is up instead of the carpeted side. I saw a explorer pick up .2 with this trick.

    Remove the back seat cushions and play with head rest positions.

    Re: Tips on gaining 1/10s

    i just got my 4 runner ,but i have done extensive work on suv's ,these are just a few little tricks that i have learned over the years.now keep in mind that some of these tricks will work and some not thats why you need to experiment before shows.also the biggest thing is the placement of the box.i've seen in the past by just moving the box forward or back just a few inches can be the difference between 1-2 db by its self in some suv's

    Re: Tips on gaining 1/10s

    In relation to the thread, when getting metered if my system gets louder with both windows open (front) is it cheating the numbers? or do you always want to do it with windows up.

    depends on the format. Most are completly sealed up unless its a headrest meter
