    apparently, my amp rack will make me louder

    So, Im out front building a simple amp rack. Just a piece of mdf, more or less. Some kid is walking down the street, and comes up and starts talking to me. He proceeds to tell me the following:

    The rack will make me louder, because the amps will be off the floor, which means my "dbs can rise to fill the air".

    Also, I have to make sure the amps are above the level of the sub, so my speaker wire can "carry the power down, so the gravity will help the loudness of it."

    Lastly, and most importantly, I need to carry earmuffs in my car, so noone goes deaf, because Ill hit "at least 400 decibels, and thats as loud as having your head by a lawnmower for a long time."

    AWESOME TIPS GUYS!!!!!! Make sure you use them in your amp rack.

    Of course it did. He was quite animated, using hand gestures and all to show me the flow of gravity. I just looked at him, and enjoyed it. Told him thanks for the tips, and that I would go right away and buy some earmuffs. Im thinking those big furry ones.

    Niko, READ THE POST. You have to have the amps above the speaker so the power can flow with gravity. God, you noobs need to get it together.

    Springfield. Land of idiots.
    No way. I MIGHT let him consult with you, if you pay me a substantial amount of money. BUT, I cant share this type of genius with the entire forum. Then Id never get to bask in the intelligence.

    Screw it, Ill rent him out- $70 an hour. The line starts here.
