We confirmed the show series today, it looks like we're going to be running the SPL portion of the Aftershock Show night show series in Epping NH. We'll post all the details on the website later this week. The dates will be on June 20th, August 29th and October 24th

The first one in the series is coming up soon. Registration gets going around 6pm, right after Import Wars at New England Dragway gets out. We'll be running the all the Stock and Amateur classes at this one. Due to time restrictions we won't have time to run the Slammin Bass format though. The entry fee for the SPL is going to be $10 per run, so do one run or do a few, it's up to you. I know a lot of guys have to work on Saturdays, so this is a chance to come out since it's gonna be a night show.

I'm hoping Dave L will come out, it's so close for him.


Show starts at 6pm, and trophies are planned for 9-9:30, so that gives us 3 hours to get everyone through. Reg fee is gonna be $10 per run, compared to the usual $20 minimum fee. The Car show portion is free, and they're gonna have free food and drinks. I know McDonalds and Monster energy drinks are a couple of the sponsors.

We'll have the new NESPL stickers available too.

Considering a lot of people thought it was gonna rain and didn't come out, it was a decent turnout. Nice to see the Amateur classes filled, and the Stock class competitors doing some decent numbers as well. I'll get the scores posted tomorrow.

The 2nd show in the series is coming up on the 29th, once again this show will be at the discounted $10 per run fee, instead of the normal $20 minimum. For those of you that haven't picked one up yet, we'll have the NESPL stickers, $2 each or 3 for $5. We also happen to have a few baby onesies left, both pink and blue, those are $15 and have the "I'M LOUDER THAN YOU" on the front, that works well for yelling babies and Loud SPL cars.

This is part of a car show, the car show is free, the SPL is $10. Last time they had Monster Energy Drinks on hand passing out free drinks, from what I've heard they will be there again this time too.

Did you make that repair yet Steve?

SPL Blazer
08-17-2009, 09:37 PM
Yup, I glued the dustcap and surround today. I'll have time next weekend to do some testing, I'm working 12 hour shifts the rest of the week, so no time til Sunday.

Yeah, I cut it and bent it in.

SPL Blazer
08-23-2009, 03:26 PM
tried a few burps again today, and the surround came unglued again, dust cap stayed on. First burp dropped the mirror off the glass, and 2nd burp sounded funny and much lower so I checked and it out and the surround came apart about 1/2 way around the cone. It's being glued again right now, a little more glue this time.

That amp must be pretty powerful.

SPL Blazer

That amp must be pretty powerful.

Possible, but I seriuously doubt it. I've never had a problem with these subs before so it surprises me to have these problems seeing as this amp is supposed to be less powerful. It's gotta be just weak parts or something.

It's got me thinking maybe it's time to buy those 10" DC level 4's that I've been wanting.

Mike-Team XLA
08-24-2009, 08:10 AM
Supposed to be less powerful doesn't mean anything. The sub could just need to be reconed too, you have been burping those for a while now :D

It's possible, but those are Fi's not the subs you run.....mine are better than yours. :D

Mr. Slate
08-24-2009, 12:32 PM
Could be a cleaner signal plus it may be more powerful then the MA Audio. We recently tested a 4000 at 17 volts and it only was doing 1836. A coulpe of burps after that, it went up in smoke.

Mike-Team XLA

You mean your subs are built better then mine with the DC parts you wish you had :D The only non-dc part of my sub is the motor :p:

Mr. Slate

I just asked a simple question.

Mike-Team XLA
08-24-2009, 01:37 PM
A question you already knew the answer too.

Mr. Slate

Dude you don't know me like that to come slick out of your mouth. I suggest you discontinue the practice.

Mike-Team XLA

Okay, but I ask you also stop asking ME stupid questions in return.

Mr. Slate
08-24-2009, 01:47 PM
It wasn't stupid to me. I'll ask it on Termpro.

Mike-Team XLA
08-24-2009, 01:53 PM
Go ahead, but those aren't my street stock subs so it's pointless, you already know the class is for stamped steel baskets and 2.5" coils. I run an atomic apxx for my daily driver and when I don't have my street stock setup in.

Mr. Slate
08-24-2009, 01:57 PM
I never asked you what you ran. I don't care. Don't get nervous, just worry about that Canadian dude.

So far the weather is looking ok for the show, should be pretty cool out that night. The weather website I checked said a low of 52 that night, maybe some numbers will get higher without the heat and humidity we've seen all season.

SPL Blazer
08-26-2009, 06:01 PM
Depending on how many people show up and the space we have, I might do a second format that night too, I'll bring the 2nd meter........wait and see.

I run everything through my processor, so I have everything turned off. Only thing was this switch on the side, it says 12-24, no idea what that is and the manual doesn't say either.

CRXBMPN
08-28-2009, 03:45 PM
thats the high pass x-over slope iirc... i flip that to FULL for burps, so I dont have anything processed out by the amp. I typically keep it @ 24db/oct for a steeper cutoff, but I turn the x-over dial up a tad more since i'm tuned a bit higher, it just rolls off harder.

SPL Blazer
08-28-2009, 03:48 PM
I won't worry about it, I have the x-over open to full so my Rockford EPX2 can do all the work.

CRXBMPN
08-28-2009, 04:09 PM
so whats the deal with your subs? and what imp are you running it @? I run two of mine @ .5 daily on two Solo X 12d1's, two YTd34's too. They take it lol... not loud enough tho :(

SPL Blazer
08-28-2009, 04:14 PM
I'm only running at .7, the subs should handle it, but two weekends in a row I've launched the dustcap, and the surround came unglued from the cone. I reglued it twice now, if it wasn't gonna be raining all day tomorrow I'd try and do some more testing on it. I was metering and testing when I first got the amp, and it was fine til I turned the gains up to half way. The MA amp had the gains at 3/4 and never had a problem.

CRXBMPN
08-28-2009, 04:25 PM
maybe the amp is just loving what you've got going and the imp is low and you are juicing them bishez :-D

The AfterShock series show we were planning on running tonight is NOT going to happen. Due to the rain, Import Wars was cancelled at New England DragWay, and the AfterShock show only happens if Import Wars does. Import wars has been cancelled and not postponed, so we'll let people know for sure if the Aftershock show and our SPL show get postponed til next Saturday or not. Because we are doing this as part of a car show it's not up to us if the show happens or not, like you, we have to keep our fingers crossed that we get a show next weekend instead, but we can't promise anything.

My wife has a part time job during the days, so I'm watchin our daughter, can't really build anything with her around, and she's too much work to take my eyes off her. Your little one must be pretty much the same.

Sounded pretty good, only thing was it sounded like the guy was saying "New England's SPL" instead of just New England SPL, and the radio stations website doesn't have our website listed on their page,they should have that posted so people can look up the SPL classes we'll we'll be offering there.

The temps are looking good right now, also looking like rain could be an issue again too. It's still several days away, so anything can change. But this Saturday will be the final NESPL show of 2009, come on out and see what you hit before winter. I have a few trophies left over from the season, so I'll probably be handing out some of these at the show. If the weather does get bad for the day and it gets cancelled I'll let everyone know as soon as I find out...which won't be til Saturday morning.

SPL Blazer
10-23-2009, 08:15 AM
We have decided to cancel the SPL portion of this show. Due to the high wind warnings and the constant rainfall all day and night it's just not worth risking our equipment. If the car show goes on even with the rain then we'll consider the 2009 season over, if they do end up making a rain date (which is doubtful this late in the season) then we'll post the info for the rain date and we'll be out for that one.

I'll have the results posted on the main website sometime on Sunday. There were 24 registered SPL competitors for the final NESPL show of the 2009 season, great turnout considering the freezing temps, quite a few new faces as well as several regular and veteran competitors.

2010 will be much bigger than this season was, new classes, more rules and a lot more shows, and possibly 2 shows at the same time in different states. New England SPL will be running our own format as well as shows for dB Drags and also for Team NorthEast SPL (TNESPL). At the end of the year we'll post a thread on here for the 2010 season rules and classes. Any feedback on these new changes will be appreciated. We'll keep you all posted as to when this thread will be started. Just to give some of you an idea for next season, there will be 3 Amateur classes, and only 3 Stock classes, no more Stock 4.

That would be cool, but as of right now they have nothing on their website for upcoming events. We've received several offers already to run shows next season, if I get all the ones offered we'd already be running about 20 events, thats not including all the last minute shows and car shows that aren't set up yet. We'll have to start at the end of April or beginning of May to get them all done, and we'll also have to decide which ones will be NESPL, TNESPL and dB Drags Shows, since we'll be doing all three of them. Something we'll also be looking into is the possibility of having someone else help us out and run a show or two for us next season, cause we might end up with two shows on the same day, in two different states. I remember years ago Slapshow used to have a show on Friday night, Saturday and again on Sunday and all three were in different New England states, sometimes there were two shows on Saturday and two on Sunday, also in different states, this would be a very cool thing.

Nah, Mike is doing his own thing and not many of them. He's not really focusing on doing a lot of shows anymore. I'd like to see him pick up a Termlab and run some Drags events, so I don't have to.

Thats where Mike Travasso comes in, him and Mike G are really good friends and Mike T owns a TL already. If they wanted to I'm sure they could get some Drags shows going down in RI.
