I think I might be going to this one. I'll might compete too but I probably won't place. Lol. I've only got 1 Bl 12 in a regular cab dodge. And I'll try to get evan to come with his ranger with 2 18" Bl's. He's only got one 2608 on both, but it's still decently loud.

I was hoping that question would have been answered by the time I scrolled to the end...:(

If there is a big SQ showing I'll make the drive. If not; I have no reason to go.

Sounds good as long as you are willing to chip in some for gas!:D
We will have to find a place to stay I think; it looks like it's a two day event. We gotta come prepared with some coolers and chairs too. No more standing around for hours with nothing to drink.

Sounds like a good idea. Do you know how big this car toys is? I'm assuming it's just HOSTED by car toys because there would be NO way it could be in a car toys parking lot; unless it was the biggest car toys in the history of mankind.

This event will have a large number of SQ competitors. I am planning on making the drive down to attend and compete. Some of the biggest names in SQ are going to be there. They are having the money round SQ which contributes to such a large SQ crowd and found out a week ago that all the people competing in the money round are also signed up for the Usaci event. Last person I talk to said there will be around 70 cars signed up for SQ... CRAZY!

How much does it cost to enter? I think I can fit in to pretty much the lowest class because my car has 1 battery, stock locations for front stage, no processors, and stock electrical. If I clean up some stuff under the hood and do a little tuning I think I could be somewhat competitive.

So reading over the rules I found a part of the rules I don't think is very clear.


Speakers located in a trunk or hatch area (in vehicles with no rear seat, the area behind the “B” pillar will be considered hatch area) must be protected from damage. All speakers in theses areas should have grills with no more than 2 inched gap at any one point. Inverted dub woofers will be considered properly protected.

Does this rule apply to subs too? I can't imagine that it does since practically NO ONE makes sub grills.

Gay....I thought about doing some 6.5" grills for the Tang Bands a long time ago but I quickly realized nothing would work for excursion reasons.

I just need to fix a few rattles and cover up the edead fiasco on the doors

ItalynStylion
08-13-2008, 04:58 PM
I wonder if there could be an exception for the way I have them mounted. I mean, the rule is intended to prove that the application can still be usable while having the speakers in a protected position. My setup does just that with their mounting location. Nothing would ever hit them.

Either way; I have some work to do before the show. I'll throw another coat of paint on my HT sub build and then work a little on tidying things up on my car.

I am sure you can make a grill real easy. make a frame and hold the grill to the enclosure with them neo magnets or some clips.

I just finished tidying up the battery area under my hood to get ready for the show. I just covered up my power wire with some split loom tubing and some electrical tape to make sure it's protected. I also attached the wire to the firewall to secure it better. I even made myself a new battery tie down since the stock one doesn't really work well with an Optima Yellow Top. :)

This would be an SQ event to attend, even if you don't compete. From what I've read on other forums this $$$ thing is a BIG DRAW for heavy hitters in the SQ world.

Not to mention, a win at a regional event is an automatic invite to finals!

I also met and talked to one of our members (smooth72) with his vette, and that thing has the cleanest sounding system I've ever heard. He did a really good job on that thing, and I just wanted to say thanks for letting me sit and listen to it. The sub box looks like something that you could order from the factory it's so clean and smooth.

Thanks for the complements. I scored a 54 out of 60 in the intre level class and took home a third place trophy. I was really surprise how most of the cars were from out of state. This was a first for me I guess I am just naive. O buy the way it is C6 not a C5, no big deal.:crazy:. I know that I got 1 point taken of for that my sound stage was 6 inches to low, time to re tune. Judge said that I had good width and center staging. I was glad to get some professional advice.

You did well with your car Smooth. It was my pleasure to sit in it. For a first timer, you did VERY well. I am not biased, since I judged it. It was very nice to listen to.

If you qualified for Finals, I will most likely be judging that event as well. So I hope I see you in Omaha. Cheers
