    Re: to old to compete?

    are you actually wanting to compete in events? Because that sub and amp combo won't get you far.

    I'd say you're closer to competing in SQ formats than SPL.

    It would depend on which organization and then class whether or not he can do anything with the a-pillar. I'm getting ready to try some homemade pods for my pillars and I know that throws me out of stock class SQL for MECA.

    I'm pretty sure. I don't compete really but have looked into it.

    All these young'ens around here are running 3,000+ watts on their daily drivers.

    Perhaps you should read some threads for a while and you will have your answer.

    It sounds like you have the makings of a decent daily driver set up.

    I will be 40 years old in the next couple of years and I have over 1,900 watts on my daily driver system. My setup is nowhere near competition worthy.

    Re: to old to compete?

    You don't need 3k to compete. Again it all depends on the organization and the class you are doing. MECA S1 has a 1500w max @ 14.4v and a single fuse limit. So you could do a single 10 off of 1500 with a 40a ANL fuse and be competitive.
