I need some input on how to do well in MECA. What's the tricks with fusing?? Voltage limitations??
I will have 3 amps and up to 6 12" subs and I guess 2 12v batts.

I'm a USACi guy and don't want to get schooled when I go.:D

That should tell you anything you want to know...

Most people are using home made fuse blocks with mulitple 5 amp fuses, other than that the only class where you are allowed higher voltage is Modex and Radical X

If you have 3 amps for your subs that counts as an "amp rack", you must have a fuse holder within 18" of the first amp... NO MAXI Fuses.... ANL, AGU, Midi, are allowed

I've got the rule book downloaded and see some discrrepancies in music sources. General rules say MP3, iPod, etc. but street says no burned CDs. Does that mean you CAN still use an iPod type device?

Since I currently don't run fuses for SPL, what's the best method? a bunch of smaller fuses???

thx for you guys' input.

If you don't want to go out and buy an asston of AGU's, you could probably get away with doing some small ANL's. A teammate of mine would run a zx2500 on a 70 amp ANL a piece.

You MIGHT be able to squeeze into S4 with 6 12's and 3 amps, but honestly it probably isn't worth the hassle if you aren't seriously competing. Just do S5 and driveby and have fun. :)

thx for the good info man.

Word has it that the shop is gonna start with a limited class list to get things going. I talked with him on the phone a few weeks ago and forgot what classes they are gonna host.
I would rebuild for MECA as 6 12s and 3 amps doesn't lend well to current draw at my ohm load :(
