I wanted to get into competing this year and being as im a poor college kid i decided to choose the cheapest route. Bassrace. So for the past 2 weeks i've been building and listening. now for the pics

Now I had a daily box already made and did a 137.7 @ 42hz. It plays thug motivation at 137.5.

My first bassrace scores from H&K audio were 129.9, 129.9, 130.0, 130.0. With a little better volume control i could have nailed 129.9 all 4 times. Saturday is another day and another bassrace there. It's only $5, so anyone around the Kendallville area its $5 saturdays @ 5pm.

It's @ a shop called H&K Audio in Kendallville, bought the aero there too $10 a pop. Great buncha guys that work there. It's not a "sanctioned bassrace event (for points)" but its still a bassrace. I'll definitely be up there alot. They build some loud cars ;).

I sold the Q towards teh end of last fall. I bought this sub for $100 and I'm just tryin to see how loud i can get it.

If you drive a trunk car, face the subwoofer forward with external ports to the side. Since it's measured at the dash, have the sub passenger side and ports driver side. I made my box with a long depth. Works like magic in trunk vechicles.

this is basically what i was thinking. i havent been able to get my new box metered yet but it moves some air. doesnt play as loud low as my other box im gonna try the sub forward too.
