Bill should still be in NW...and Jeff I believe (idk if he's coming though)...but nobody louder than 145's or so that I can think of...so youre kinda on your own, haha

And is anyone in SS1-2 showing..?..I may be alone, haha

Keep in mind , you may see some new faces with cash prizes on the line, and NW usually has the most competitors at Gregs shows. I am looking for Rob to put up a big number this time around.

SS 1-2 doesn't have a strong turnout for the most part, but it has its share of Big Dogs that come out to the shows. Ron Gooding is doing a 160+ and he made quite a few local events last year.

Yea, Ive kind of reviewed past results and SS 1-2 isnt a very strong turnout but I do see a good handful of pretty big numbers when people do show up...hopefully I can hang with some of them when my upgrade's completed...but there's no way I could hang with the top-dogs pulling 160+ :(..

Hopefully the cash brings in more people though :)

Why are you only removing you back half headliner?, are you not planning on putting it ack in?

Pioneer~Saturn
03-15-2009, 03:56 PM
Why are you only removing you back half headliner?, are you not planning on putting it ack in?

Because im starting to deaden the back right now and wont be able to get the whole ceiling done and a new headliner back in before the comp so Im pretty much just doing the back for now to get a bit of work done and still stay in SS1-2...after the 22nd though everything's coming out of the car for the build...every panel will be taken off and the ceiling stripped for deadening, and the deadening will be plenty thick in the back and the front will be kept to the 2-layer limit, I just dont want to not have a headliner upfront for the comp


After it's all done everything will be reupholstered and im stll not sure what to do with the rear interior door panels....maybe fiberglass them so when they shut theyre flush with the enclosure..idk

See you there...and you wouldnt want to lose to a trunk car with a single sub, would you? :) But seriously, you'll probably have me beat...we'll see what happens in a month and a half or so though ;)

Meh, my setup is far from being an spl-setup, it's still tuned low...we'll see

A pair of 18" Omega's...one behind each seat with the port in the rear deck...tuned nice n low (30Hz) with a big ol' port and around 12 cubes net...should break some stuff :)

Sorry I missed the show, I just haven't had the time to work all the bugs out of my current setup. I am hoping to have it worked out by the next show.


Congrats on the win Rob. Who took home the big money?

i did a 149.3.. not too bad for my second show... ill probably try to do some box changes and hopefully get into the 151's... on the termpro site though it says i did a 146.1 1st run and 148.3 my second run. but the 146 was my qualifying so that's wrong... unless there is a different way of putting the scores up that i dont know of. i feel like i got screwed out of 2nd place. lol. oh well

Your loudest winning score is what is posted.

If you qualified with a 146, and later did a 149.3 but lost that round the score will not be posted. Just an fyi.

yea. i pulled a better score than i expected but im probably gonna go a different rout with my box to see if i can get up to 152. maybe a wall since it basically is already.

2000LaDe
03-24-2009, 05:19 AM
yah u better wall it or do like i said about making the box shorter since i think the box is too big as it is for the power. and do each sub in thier own chamber with ports center of the chamber or across the bottom. just my .02

yea ! that was another one of my options... honestly i may just sell or find somone to trade for some bad *** 15's so i could build a nice box similar to the one my 18's are in only shorter so i can be in the 1-2nw class... im thinking with the power, the right 15's and box i can pull close to the same numbers i did last weeked... any opinions on this??

^^ well if he did its a little too late. i sold/traded them 2 days ago. not what i wanted but ill be able to get rid of these subs too if they dont do what i want.... i got 2 dual 4 ohm re se's 15" and $400 for both the 18's.... im almost sure these se's arent gonna get as loud as i would like so ill prolly sell them off soon and im gonna try a pair of 15" soundstream splx's
