No CD, use tones. Download them from realmofexcursion.com through the downloads link in the top toolbar, or download the program Audacity and you can generate your own.

that "should" be loud...I would get a test tone cd if you just want high scores....

and ifyour looking for songs, just search the bass track thread

i dont think that you will be able to use the ipod. 99% of comps you have to use their currents disc as per the rules the jugdes should have one or a few.

the DB drag discs you can order from termpro.com

i have the usac cd on my computer if anyone wants it, i can zip it and ship it through AIM.

also, what kind of mic, and where is the mic going to be placed?

at the dash on the TL? maybe a 45-50? Trucks are tough for me to figure out lol
at the kick on the TL? maybe a 48-53? Trucks are fun to get loud outlaw :)

pretty respectable for a daily driver setup...build a box for pure spl and see a good 3-5db gain, maybe more if you know what you're doing.

you can try putting stuff inside the box to take up space. a smaller box with the same port will raise the tuning....what's the net ft^3 and what do you have it tuned to right now?

I was messing around with some calcs and if he has 8ft^3, and lowers it down to 7ft^3, he'll raise the tuning by about 2.5hz....might give him another db or two at 46hz.

i cant remeber exactly but the box it 14" tall the part between the wheel wells is 38x14 and the part infornt is 53x19

yeah, you've got about 10ft^3 before any displacement. so you have probably around 8.5 after all displacement...try filling up another ft^3 and it'll raise your tuing a little, and give you a better peak at 46hz...

how would i go about filling up another ft^3

2x4's, bricks...preferably something heavy that you won't have to glue down in order for it to stay in one place..................bricks.

To take up space in the enclosure you can also add 45's to the corners ;)
