I'm doing trophies for 1st and 2nd place and certificates for 3rd-8th place. The trophies are actually pretty sweet, a new flames design for 2008. Nobody's got these ones, yet. We'll have to wait and see what classes have competitors, who knows, you could take first or second even if your not as loud as you think. There should be a few tuner cars there, and those will probably be in the street Stock classes, there's the Freestyle class which is open to almost anyone that wants to try for it. I have all the db drags and Bass race rules links and such in my blog on Myspace.

I have a buddy who we just built a box for four L7 12's for, with a ten inch round port :) it was loud until he jewed himself by blowing the amp lol...

i may get a hotel friday night down there as it will be easier to pack a child up when I'm only 10 minutes or whatever away, rather than 2+ hours.

I'll be soliciting people to go, I'm sure the 420 boys will be there.

Registration starts at 10am, and hopefully we'll get the qualifying started by 11:00. I want to get the elimination rounds done by 4pm at the latest. I'm hoping to to have everything all done by 4:30. I have to get everything done in a timely manner so the cops don't shut us down for disturbing the peace.

Bob and Rooney should be there. Bob is re-tuning his wall so hopefully he has it done by then, he's getting tired of blowing out windshields. They're working on a couple Bass racers for some guys too, one has 4 DD subs and the other with 18 12" T3's.

i know of both setups that you mentioned Steve. I'll be there with either my two mojo quad 15's or my vfl 15's, depends which meter better... and my two 2500d's :)

street c or nw or sm 1-2 :confused:

SPL Blazer
04-17-2008, 01:01 PM
I talked to the shop owner and he's gonna let us do Bob's run's inside the install bay, so none of the neighbors call the cops and complain. Everyone else should be ok, but you can hear his bass race run from a couple blocks away.

For anyone that doesn't know the area, there's a good pizza place next door, and a McDonalds a few stores down, and a Dairy Queen across the street. Any spectators are asked to park across the street so we have enough room for competitors.

Depending on the amp your running you can try for Street Stock A, one 650 cu in batt allowed, vehicle running is ok and no limit on capacitors. Street Stock classes the enclosure can't go above the top of the seats, not including headrests. There may not be a lot of people running amps on the approved amp list at this show, so I'll probably give them a yes or no at the show. The power range is 1000 watts for this class. Unless you want to try for a higher class, but I think you'd be better off in the Street Stock A class.

You can try Freestyle, no amp limit or power limit, no sub limit either. Your allowed two 800 cu in batteries. This one's for the newer competitors, and there's always Super Street No Wall. If your box wasn't so high you could just do the street C class.

SPL Blazer
04-17-2008, 02:09 PM
Oh yeah, downside of Street Stock and freestyle is it's music only. Don't forget, there's always Bass race, no amp or sub limits, no box height limits either.

04-17-2008, 03:10 PM
Can someone explain what exactly "bassrace" is? I see everyone talking about it... I just have no idea what it consists of.

SPL Blazer
04-17-2008, 05:50 PM
Check out this link for the official Bass Race rules and description.

http://www.termpro.com/dbdrag/rules/index.asp?Page=3


Bass race is pretty simple and it doesn't matter how many subs you have or how many amps you have. As long as you can hit 129.9 db's with music then you have a chance to win. There are four classes depending on how loud you can get. You get a qualifying round to determine just how loud you can get and then you get placed in the correct class, if you can hit 129.9 db's then thats the class you want. If your max is say 138.1 then your gonna want to stay in the 129.9 class. You want to get as close to 129.9 and keep it there without going over 130.0.

Here are the classes:
120.0 dB to 129.9 dB
130.0 dB to 139.9 dB
140.0 dB to 149.9 dB
150.0 dB to 159.9 dB

If you can hit 129.7 you can still win, cause anyone that hits a score above the bracket your in will "bust out" and be disqualified, therefore making the next highest score the winner. It's all a matter of being able to control your volume knob. Check out the link for the full rules and guidelines.

Here's a link to the 2008 rules matrix for dB Drags. If you check out the blogs on my Myspace page I have more details there.

2008 dB Drags Rules (http://www.termpro.com/dbdrag/rules/index.asp?Page=2)


There are other tabs you can click on that give you the more detailed rules.

04-21-2008, 11:40 AM
I think I will just play around in street c
unfortunately i was only able to test to "moderate" levels last night before my neighbor made it a point to appear pretty pissed off at my testing :)

street c = car off, remote control running radio from outside, correct.

street max/super street = car off (sm) car on (ss), both can have podiums/outside radio setups...

right?

SPL Blazer
04-21-2008, 01:41 PM
In street Stock, Street a,b,c and Street Max the vehicle can't be running, Super Street it can be. According to the official rules you can't be inside the vehicle for anything over 140 db, except for Bass Race. Since this is my show I'm not following this rule, if you want to sit inside go right ahead, we do it at all the single point shows. I'll try to have headphone type hearing protection available to those who want to use it.

SPL Blazer
04-21-2008, 01:47 PM
I'm thinking of running in the extreme Class this time around. I don't need the points and I didn't buy any trophies for extreme class vehicles so I'll run in the Extreme 2 class and let someone else have a shot at the Street A 1st place instead of me taking it every time. Figured I might take out the front seat and some of the interior panels, plus I can keep it running so I'll be able to see what my amp can do at .5 ohms.

CRXBMPN
04-21-2008, 04:39 PM

hey can you throw this up on termpro's forum as well? I went over and didnt see a topic about it on the first two pages, maybe that can help :confused:

SPL Blazer
04-23-2008, 11:28 PM
It all depends on your set up, if you have a single sub 13W6 like your sig says than you could do either Street Stock A, Street A or possibly the new freestyle class. What amp are you running and do you have a capacitor or a second battery?

CRXBMPN
04-25-2008, 12:46 PM
if you are nervous about competing for the first time and are scared of the meter come by and talk to me first, you can jump on my termlab and see what you got and go from there...

I may not end up spending the night friday night, a bunch of people may want to make the trip from up here and honestly if I dont lead them around like puppies they wont make it. Ugh, to be obsessed with car audio :(

hey will you be providing db drag cd's at the show? all i have are burned (legit though) usaci cd's, the one with the brown top haha

SPL Blazer
04-25-2008, 02:24 PM
I was nervous the first time I competed, glad there were good guys around to give me tips on getting louder. Thats a bonus with Drags, you get a qualifying run to see what you hit and then you have time before your final run so you can get tips from other competitors on getting little louder before you make your final run. With USACi you only get one run, unless you want to pay extra money for additional runs. Later this season when I get New England SPL going better I'll be allowing a couple runs, kinda like Slapshow did. Keep an eye open for posts on those shows, got one set up for August 10th in Rockland Mass and another possible one in July.

yup, I have volumes 10 & 11 Drags discs along with Volumes 2 & 3 Bass Race discs. The bass race ones are ok, a couple decent tracks for music.

I'm thinking about a 1 pm cutoff time for registrations and qualifying, I want to get the show over by 4pm so I'm gonna have to set a time.

Well I was talking with the guys at AutoSound today, it's the shop where the show is being held, they have some vendors sending some swag for the show. Looks like Kicker is sending a couple subs and some t-shirts to raffle off or hand out. I was told that some other companies are also sending some stuff for the show, but they don't have details on the other stuff yet. This should be a pretty good show, hope there's a good turnout for this one. If things go well for the show they said we'd be able to do another one later this summer, possibly at their other store that has a much larger parking lot.

Disconnect the caps and you can do Street A using test tones, or keep the caps and do Street Stock A using only music. If you do Street A you'll have to use our db Drags cd with the tones. Street stock A is limited on power too, I believe right now there's a 1000 watt limit.

The owner had a good time and said I can do another show there this summer. I'll probably be looking at sometime in August, and possibly a Sunday. There would have been more people there but a lot of people have to work Saturdays.

If anyone from New England is on Myspace then check out our Myspace page at www.myspace.com/nespl I'll have listings of future shows there as well as updates and rules being posted in the blog section. There are a couple shows I have in the works for this summer in Mass, so keep an eye out. If anyone knows of a shop thats willing to have a show and has a parking lot big enough for us then let me know and we'll see if we can get some more shows going.

Anyway, thanks for the shirt, I got a pair of speakers from the raffle but I dont know what Im going to do with 4x6's lol. Great fun, hopefully Ill have some money to start my system and get some experience under my belt.

yes man! how did your tire turn out?
the two RSX's had the same subs, same amp too, only i had two 2500d's @ 1 ohm and he had one 2500d @ .5 ohm...

Oddly enough, I bought my old CRX off Scott, and he happened to buy the same kind of car as me (rsx) lol... great minds think alike :confused:

Eh, it was fine, there was a gas station right down the street anyway. I really need to swap over one of my good tires from my camaro thats sitting in my front yard, lol.

Yea, I'm hoping my next system is the real deal this time. No more sony xplod and crappy brands. Im still not sure if I want SQ or SPL. I love having huge bass but it gets to the point where I just want it to sound good and hit nice. These dbdrags and bassraces look fun though. At least I know theres a few guys around here who can help me out (hopefully, haha). I actually got a question for splblazer, or anyone else that knows about those external ports he had on his box...

Whats the question?

I know I'm going to sound like a complete n00b but...

If I put my ports on the outside like that will I be able to make my box smaller? Seeing as my hatch area is kind of small for a box I was going to do a sealed box for the size. I was thinking if I can make the box to fit and have the ports run up along the sides of the hatch towards the back seat I would be able to free some space up.

So I'm pretty much asking, do the ports take up space, and if they are on the outside can my box be smaller, haha.

(Please god I hope I dont sound like a complete idiot...)

By placing the ports on the outside you no longer have to account for port displacement, so yes, you can make the enclosure smaller. Check out www.psp-inc.com for a port calculator, it'll give you an idea of what size ports you can run and how many depending on the enclosure size and tuning freq.

hey steve, theres an error on that event results. Stock Street A
I (Marc) was the 130.6, Dave was the 142 and 140.8.

I was wondering how I came in second with a higher score?

How do you figure? Don't you read all the forums and such? I just posted a new thread about several shows going on this month alone, including one in Rhode Island, how close do you expect the shows to get? I drive up to 3 1/2 hours each way sometimes, so anything in New England is considered close.
