150's in kick will be easy. 150's on dash will be a challenge.

150 usaci style is not an accomplishment.

150 usaci style is not an accomplishment.Why would you say that? 150 of any kind at the dash is an accomplishment. Kicks, headrest, etc doesn't count to me.:cool:

usaci is in the kick. db drag is on the dash. the only score that counts to me is dash also.

i am just saying doing a 150 usaci style with 2 18's will not be hard to do

you wont be able to go from a daily driver box to another daily driver box and gain 3 db's just wont happen. if you did a spl box, and that is not necessarily subs up port back you could do 150. but that will take a good system design. i am doing a system right now in a tahoe. 4 15's facing up with 6'' aeros facing back. 150's legal would be hard and unlikely for it.

Who built your box(s) for you? It just seems like with that kind of power and subs, in the right box you should be at 150. I have 1 18" RL-p, 1200rms, and I'm at 149.0 at the dash with a new TL.

local shop.i have been told it does not have enough port.i am wanting to build a box my self but never built one.so worried about ruining my system.treo told me to build a box that is 12 cubic ft internal
after bracing port and sub displacement.with a 200 sq inch port tuned to 35 hz.subs up port back.i really want to try this triying to get some one to draw me a sketch to follow so i can.i know i want the box 48 inches wide.and 26 inches deep and 22 to 24 inches tall.somethin like as long as it is 48 inches wide.may be you can draw me a sketch with measurments or know someone who will.i would appreciate it.the place where i built this box said if i do subs up i will lose low end bass is this true.eveyone says sub up port back in suv.
