so i went to my first competition today. it was a meca competition in Marion Indiana. i had a good time there besides it got fckin COLD by the end of the night. Myself and a couple guys from Soundcheck road with me there to check it out. there was about 30 cars total there. not a huge turn out. all 30 cars didnt compete though. i had 4 cars in my class. street 4 because i didnt feel like changing out my fuse to a 60 amp to compete in street 3 but it actually turned out better for me to do street 4 cuz there were 4 cars so it pays a 20 dollar cash payout if u win.

and when i first got there everybody was lookin at my stuff and didnt think much of it cuz it was only a single 18 with an mtx amp. well i surely got the WOW factor after i burped it. people couldnt believe that it was hittin that high with a box tuned to 36hz.

im still running the same setup i was running before. just upped the gain a hair on the amp. and position the box and seats to make it the loudest in the kick as possible. didnt have but like 10 minutes to test so i couldnt figure out exactly the loudest way but the way i did it helped alot.

(1) 18" Treo SSX
(1) MTX 1501d
(2) Kinetik hc2400's
stock alternator

well i dont have all the scores just mine.

i got the PHAT Truck award

and the Loudest 18 award

in SPL i got 1st with a 148.0 db. i dunno bout u but thats awesome for what i have haha. it was very suprising. in my test runs i was doin a 148.5 but when i was metered i only got a 148.0

in Reality SPL which is where they put the meter at the headrest of the drivers seat and u play a song and u see how high u hit. i hit a 143.0db at the headrest playin a bass mechaniks track. wasnt the right frequency for me so i didnt do as well as i could have. oh and yah i placed first in my class in reality SPL also

ok last i did drive by. which i completely fcked up on BUT i still had the loudest drive by score there. my deck skipped for like 20 sec in a row so i couldnt meter ****. and at the start like the first 3 sec of the song was nothing so it didnt register anything. but i did get a good 7-10 sec of actual bass and i did a 122.8 30 sec average about 6ft away from the meter. unfortunetly if my deck wasnt skipping non stop i woulda averaged upwards of a 128. i was of course playin Lil Jon - Throw it up :)

Sorry, doubt you would have done a 128 on average in drive by. Its a lot harder than you think it is. i did drive by once with 20 seconds of silence...and i still averaged a 123.x

while my car can average over a 128 easily.

upwards of a 128. not sayin i would have. but i know i woulda been VERY close. but come to find out it was the cd skipping not the deck. i used someone elses cd. but o well. i still beat the modex vehicle and everybody else there even though i didnt get but maybe 10 sec of actual music out.

128 is out of the question as an average. thats hard to do. most likely lower 120-124's.....seems more realistic:)

all orgs can be fun especially if you read the rules and prepare accordingly .... thats about where most people get pissed at.. they get stuck in a tougher class due to what they have/or way they installed it and they get mad

yah i will be doing my large install sometime soon might not have the power yet for it but ill have everything else hooked up and ready. i should have one hell of a drive by vehicle. my main goal for this next year is a 149.9 in bass race. all the guys at sound check and myself will hopefully bring multiple cars to finals next year.
