Here we go, some pics for you jealous bastards that didn't go. Turnout was decent and Tommyk90 really helped everyone out by taking the TL. It was more of an SPL crowd, as Myself and MLstrass were the only "SQ/SQL" guys. But it was fun to see other peoples setups and just BS around. BTW, my little setup only did 131 on the TL :crap: Better than I expected. But here are the pics:

Nasty wind gust ripped the stakes out of the ground and planted the tent firmly on my hood....fantastic.

Had a great time once I finally got there. Being lost in corn fields for 2+ ****ing hours FTMFL!!!!

Martin had the Envoy. 8.5cubes at 35Hz. I saw several boxes that I built, but none were louder than mine. LOL And thanks to Martin for helping my lost *** finally get to the meet!!!!

I was asking Tommyk about the MT and Jerry's 3 L7's as both set ups sounded way louder than mine, but I metered higher. Was far too tired to comprehend what he said though as I didn't finish the intall until 5:30am, so 3 hours of sleep had me pretty goofy all day. I did sit in the Envoy for about 3 minutes and that was all I could take. The lows are INSANE on that sub!!!!

Major props to Tommyk for metering everyone and helping this rookie put his **** up against the TL. I really built mine for SQL and I think most that heard it thought it sounded very good playing any kind of music. I was quite happy with a 147.1 @ 31Hz at the head, but still happier just cranking it and enjoying it on the way home.

Tonyguy let me hear his Hertz comps, sounded nice, and got very loud. Don't remember what sub he had but it blended quite well. BTW the song is "When The Water Breaks" by Liquid Tension Experiment and it's 17 minutes long. "Crazy On You" by Heart also has some excellent guitar and drums in it. I think you and I were the only two guys who didn't play Hypnotize. LOL

Heard the 15" BTL in the pics, but I'm guessing the box is too small/tune is wrong, and maybe HU settings as it was really farting at best. Cool kid that owned it though as we BS'd for a minute.

I was so F'ing tired that I didn't even notice the subs on the side of the box with the 6 PG's. One side was hitting the inner fenderwell. Need to slap a few 2x4's under that box and let em excurt. Did sound loud as hell though.

Big Boy (Jerry) showed up, but I never got to hear his L7's in the box I built. Next time for sure, but he'll probably have 6 subs by then as he's serious about getting loud.

Never got to hear Tommyk's set up either as I wanted to sit in an SPL vehicle and that was my best chance. I'll have to save that chance for the next meet.

Props to all that came out and shared their set ups, experience, knowledge, etc...

Yeah, i was a lil disappointed i didn't get to hear anymore SQ setups. BTW, the sub was a Treo SSi. Nice to meet you again, and we'll definitely collabo when I change my substage and take a chance at FG.

Heard the 15" BTL in the pics, but I'm guessing the box is too small/tune is wrong, and maybe HU settings as it was really farting at best. Cool kid that owned it though as we BS'd for a minute.

I was so F'ing tired that I didn't even notice the subs on the side of the box with the 6 PG's. One side was hitting the inner fenderwell. Need to slap a few 2x4's under that box and let em excurt. Did sound loud as hell though.

Big Boy (Jerry) showed up, but I never got to hear his L7's in the box I built. Next time for sure, but he'll probably have 6 subs by then as he's serious about getting loud.

Never got to hear Tommyk's set up either as I wanted to sit in an SPL vehicle and that was my best chance. I'll have to save that chance for the next meet.

Props to all that came out and shared their set ups, experience, knowledge, etc...
yea that box looks super small for that sub. maybe its just tuned high as hell though :confused:

is that a kx/zx2500?

Nah, the 15's got about 2.5 dB over the 10".

Though the 15" did break the box and probably lost a few dB in the process. :laugh:

i got my new amp installed the other day, and my friend helped me for a few minutes remove the old **** and rewire it (temporary until i get my installation supplies) and he put an RCA into the wrong input and had me stumped why the left channel was out.

finally i saw that and fixed the problem.

I'm pretty sure it broke something. Maybe the box was flexing too much and the sub came loose. Either way, I heard a distinct rattling that I hadn't heard before. :laugh: That and I could tell that I lost some output.

well at least thats good. i was quite surprised when i saw it.

first 1 sub within the first week. system off until i got the new sx in. then within that next week, the other one went.

said it was a slight problem with the adhesive they used or something. not quite that familiar with technical terms for sub parts and how they are put together.

Tonyguy...it was nice to hear another set up considered SQ as I wanted to see how my version of SQ compared to others. Those Hertz speakers are quite articulate and pleasing to listen to. Tweeters were a little brighter than what I'm used to, but not actually bright. Just that my Vifa's are pretty laid back and that's what I'm used to now.

Martin....thanks for the DOA sticker and chasing it down in the field for me after my ******* left it on the dash with 60mph winds. I'll work up box plans tomorrow as I'm too tired to think tonight.

If we do a meet next year I'll probably wire up the subs at .75ohms strapped just for a burp, but I really just wanted a number for what it does daily.

Thanks again to Tommyk for bringing the TL and helping us noobies. And next time I WILL ask for a listen instead of wandering around in a daze from lack of sleep and driving around corn fields for 2+ hours. I bet my drive took longer than the guy from Madison. LOL

With the grain in the wood it "looked" like the baffle was rippling like the ocean, seriously. Was pretty cool ****. Saw you leaning on it trying to be a "brace" but the DD won that battle :laugh:

How you like the sound of the DD? I've built a few boxes for them, 4-4.5 cubes tuned to 35Hz and I think they sound pretty good on music and can get **** loud in a daily set up.

I was the guy in the Camry! 1 BTL (with the box by Belunt lol) and a T20001 at 2ohm. 140.3 @ 28 hz. I was a little disappointed with the score but wasnt expecting too much more since I wasn't getting full power and tuned low. My boy Will had the Sebring with the other BTL thats in the picture. Yes his box was too small. It was an old prefab that I had laying around. I threw all of his stuff in yesterday RIGHT before work so I didn't get a chance to do any tweaking before the meet. The amp (IgnoreMe) was a kx2500.1 at 4ohms. Yes we should have switched amps but its a story behind that. He did a 139.? with it like that so we still have some work to do.

its a dual 2 ohm btl? have you tried wiring it up at 1 ohm? my amp wont take it but most of the kx and zx's i have seen can. mine can take 1.4 just fine though.

its a dual 2 ohm btl? have you tried wiring it up at 1 ohm? my amp wont take it but most of the kx and zx's i have seen can. mine can take 1.4 just fine though.

i got the same combo. 1 15" btl and a kx2500 but at 2 ohms. good **** for sure.

I didn't want to wire it at 1ohm because he has NO electrical upgrade at all and I didn't want to risk it. He just wanted a system in his car so I threw in some stuff I wasn't using. I had it in my car at 1 ohm for about a week and it got warm but never shut off. The amp didn't like my car tho. Anything over about 40hz would send a crackling sound to my 6.5s and tweets so I took it out. Still don't know why it did that :crap:
