entered my first competition today. event was the Import face Off in Gainesville Fl. sound off event was held by USACI. class i was entered into was modified 2001-4000. first run was 150.4 @ 49hz, windows up doors shut mic at the floor. after a little tuning and tweaking second run was 151.3 @ 49hz drive side door open with mic @ floor. although there wasnt much competition there i still think it was pretty good for a system in the works, it by no means is nowhere near done. closest score to me was a truck in modified 4000 that was doing a 150.7 windows down( which i hear is extremely low for his class). next he did 158 in port so i guess he technically has overall db's. i guess i didnt do that bad for a first timer:crap:

before the competition at the shop just to see where it was on the meter we did a few sweeps to find our peak hz ...with mic at dash peak was 149.0 @ 49hz and we left it at that. once we made a few adjustments @ the show we know were sitting @ 151's now. we havent really wanted to push the two 18'' BL's yet. right now there being powered by a powerbass xa 4000d and gain is only about a quarter ways up. so right now were looking into possibly upgrading to some BTL's so we can get that powerbass amp going good

everything was ****** in general. there was some good import races, the hot body contest ****** pretty bad. the girls looked like hillbillys finest. the audio show in general was alright. some nice cars and systems. then again some really ****** cars and great systems..nice cars and terrible systems:laugh: some group called team CTA Audio from iverness florida brought up about 6 cars and tried to take every class in the audio show. they do some nice custom body work but there audio systems are very mediocre, at best. there loudest vehicle was there suv that won the port wars(wooptie doo)! 158.0. i believe he had four 15'' mojos. but on sweeps the best he could do was 150.7, then after that i did the 151.3. the rest of the cars they had were doing low 140.'s....in general it was a very nice show ***** you missed it!

Yea I should be there I may compete not sure yet.

I have a xxx-6500 at 1ohms on 2 funkin audio 12's ( or I should say I will ) waiting on the box should be done Sunday.. Thats in my 2500HD..

I am redoing my wife's car for that comp as well, I plan to use one 15" FI BTL on 4000w. It's going in her 97 Honda civic but need to find a alt for it first and run some 1/0 to the back I think she only has 4g right now.

I am trying to find a van as well to do a wall of 4 18"s DP's if I can't get rid of them, I was going to use 2 in my truck but wife does not want me to remove all the seats to get 2 of them in there. lol So need a crap van to fix up..

It will be my first comp, I am sure I will not win but hey got to start somewhere why not start at the biggest one.. lol
