We'll be hitting Porter & Chester in Chicopee Mass along with Dreamz II Reality for the Sweet Dreamz car show and SPL Sound Off. Event takes place this coming Sunday. This will also be the event where we will be handing out the trophies for the Top Team, and Most improved SPL in the Amateur and Stock classes. This will be the final day for those trying to earn points and raise their db levels for the top trophy. We will be offering both the SPL format as well as the Slammin Bass format. Fee's will be the normal $20 for SPL OR Slammin Bass, and $30 for both.

The weather should be nice, but just in case there is a rain date for the following Sunday, Oct 18th.

For those of you that missed the show....The show went great, 26 competitors in the SPL format, and 5 in the Slammin Bass format. Great job by Bill Geisendorfer on hitting the 150.4, that gave him a 12 db gain this season. Today was the first tie breaker we've had to do in the Super Stock classes. Mike Gladu from Renots and Ron Corriea both tied at 157.3, before Ron was able to rise to a 157.6 to take the 1st place and also the Loudest SPL of the day. Kyle Dixon of Eastern Connections Auto Club took the Most Improved Score in the Amateur class while Bill Geisendorfer crushed his last score of 146.4 with his new high of 150.4 to win the most Improved Score of the Stock class. Team Xtreme Loud Audio took home the trophy, winning by 1 point, a very close race between Team XLA and Eastern Connections Auto Club, an awesome job by all.

A big thanks to Rusty and DC SoundLabs for sponsoring the big trophies, and to all the competitors that have helped us out this season by coming out and competing and helping to bring new faces to the shows. This is greatly appreciated and this is the way we're going to help bring SPL competitions back.


And a HUGE thanks to those of you that chipped in on our gift and bought a trophy for Cathy and Myself, it was totally unexpected and greatly appreciated. The nameplate on the trophy reads "Top SPL Organization" and was given to us at the end of the show, this was a real surprise. We're glad you guys feel NESPL is a great SPL organization and appreciate the hard work we've been putting in this season for everyone. This trophy will be sitting on our entertainment center and not in the garage with the rest of our SPL trophies.

That was a great show, I thought probably the most fun of the year. I had the most fun doing demos with just 2 Alpine Type R 12's...lol. People were very confused how I got them so loud :)

Bill Geisendorfer- Welcome to the 150 club! The crazy part is, his score was done at 40hz!! Congrats on most improved Stock competitor of the year too, you deserve it bro :)

Kyle Dixon- Congrats on Amateur competitor of the Year, also well deserved. Now hook up the second amp and lets see what it can do!

Team XLA/TJ - Congrats on Top Team bro, and thanks for your help and generosity for the past 2 seasons

Eastern Connections- You guys came within 1 point of the Team trophy in your first season...your enthusiasm and team spirit is very cool! You're a good group of guys and you showed a lot of improvement over the season, so nice work

Chris Steele- fix your **** glass, I don't want any excuses when I go 3 for 3 at ATD! lol ...Congrats on another good score bro and I look forward to next season

What a season, what a weekend, what a show I'm still kind of in shock. I have so many great people to thank for so much. !st a huge thanks to Steve and Cathy and not just for all the hard work and massive amount of comps you ran, you personally helped me so much. TJ said it best, I also can't say enough.

I must thank my family for all the support, without them not only would I have not been able to accomplish what I have this season but I would be in a gutter some where.

I'll be thanking Dave Lehneman for the rest of my days lol. Bro you have taught me more in 3-4 months about being truely loud then I learned in my entire life. I owe sooo much to you, and for a second lets forget car audio, you are just an awsome person who has more class and kindness in your pinky finger then most people have in the whole body. I am a much better person for knowing you. You def. are THE Competetor of the Year, a more well deserved recipiant doesn't walk this earth. Hell, the ave. SPL for the entire league would be MUCH lower if you were not around, and thats a fact. When Kyle and I were checking out the trophies earlier in the day he was trying to read through the tape to see who's name was on it, but I didn't cuz I didn't need to, I knew it was you it had to be, there was no 2nd place. Your in a league all by yourself IMO.

Thanks to my team mates, you all helped a ton. This season has been a collected effort, we helped each other as much as we pushed each other to be better (& louder) versions of ourselves. It made the season even more special to me to say the least.

Thanks to Mike and Keith from Team Renots, you guys gave me alot of good tips and advice all of which always helped me no suprise :-)

Thanks to all of the exsperienced competetors, like TJ and the guys from Team XLA, Mike Shoesmith, Chris Steel from ACT Audio, Ron Correia, I know I am missing some names but my head stil kind of spinning so forgive me if I forgot to list your name. All of you made this rookie feel right at home and comfortable at every event. NESPL is great for alot of reasons, one of them being how cool and friendly its list of competetors are, without people like I just listed it wouldn't be the same.

Thanks to my sponsor Soundstream of course, special thanks to Grizz Archer you are a great rep. as well as being a very cool guy! You gave me better support and equipment then I could have asked for.

Thanks to DC audio, pumped you decided to support NESPL. A wise choice IMO one I know you will not regret. That said it impressed me, support from companies like you is what this sport needs. You are a model for the rest of the industry.

Thanks to Smokedog, you came through with that power drill! I wouldn't have gotten my subs wired down in time and would not have even gotten to make an SPL run. It came down to the last 5 mins!!! Talk about cutting it close yikes, made for some intense drama tho, the iceing on the cake.

Got to say Ted Adams was very cool, after besting his score he shook my hand and congradulated me, a genuine congrats I was impressed. Also impressed how sick he was but he show'd anyways, he slept in his car at a rest stop after the show thats how hard core he was yesterday lol.

I couldn't have scripted a better rookie season, learned so much, met so many new people I like and had more fun then I could have imagined. I'm blown away and addicted to say the least. I'm sure when I come down from cloud 9 I'll think of some more people I need to thank. I def. didn't hit 150.4 in less then 4 months by myself, it took all the above listed to make it happen and it means more then I can ever say, means the world to me! Only problem you all have now is your stuck with my company at every event now ;-) It has been an honor to share the lanes and time with you all.

I'd say you need your port on driver side, def not passenger side. Pics would help for sure but before I can make any real suggestions I'd say take Dave "NESPL Competetor of the Year" Lehneman's advice. He mentioned to me yesterday that he made a suggestion to you about your port, he didn't say exactly what his suggestion was but I'd do that what ever it was. If you can't remember what he told ya I am sure if you ask him he'd tell you again.

I'd also say that 150 square inches of port seems very low to me, I have less cone area and maybe a smaller box (not sure on that one) and I have over 350 square inches of port. :-) But you have space issues so dunno what is possible to fit port wise. Either way tho Dave or TJ (street b explor) are awsome people to get advice from, much much better then me. Thier numbers speak for themselves really, hell Daves helped so many people on tour get so much louder I can only imagine how much lower the leagues yearly average SPL level would be without him helping so many of us.

You def. have more in it then 141.1 IMO but hey, I remember at the Aftershock show you got a 138.3, so an almost 3 db jump in 2 comps is great trust me, that is one thing I do know alot about ;-) Your def. going in the right direction, so keep up the good work. Just listen to Dave or TJ and you can't go wrong, it worked for me, and everyone else they have helped.

In all the excitement I almost forgot to give a big congrats to Team XLA on winning Best Team 2009, you guys def. deserved it. It was a real pleasure being part of the race for it and it added alot of fun and suspence over the season. I hope Steve keeps the points race for next year, as well as the other yearly awards, cuz besides how much fun it adds to the league it gives us all something to shoot for, multiple goals and such make us all better and determined to achieve. Just one of the many many things that makes NESPL so great.

So again job well done XLA.

yea i rember what dave told me and i am takeing that into concideration he said slot over two round 8'' ports but explained to me that figuring port lagth is hard.on two ports and its along math problem. i dont mind doning the math i am good at it. but i wanna save dave the trouble of writeing it out. hes help me out alot already hes a great guy. unforcantly i cant aford to do changes to my box everyday kinda want to get it close the first well 3 time now. where my problem comes is room i have none!!!! i cant really put the slot port in the front of the box cuz of the rail thats on the rear deck. and side to side is cinda blocked two so i think i am going to be stuck in the middle??

that 138.3 was with just my 2 12s i am happy with my 141.1 but like you said theres alot more. i want 145. my 3 db jump i am not happy with cuz i add 750 more watts and 2 more 12s 3 is not enough for me i want more.

i am open for every suggustion. i would love to break the 150 mark but i dont think thats going to happen with my setup i have. do you?

thanks again everyone

how deep are them subs and how tall is the box.

BassBrawlinBill
10-12-2009, 08:01 PM
impossible for me to say if there is a 150 in your current system cuz I am not familiar enough with it, I will say that breaking it for me was very hard and I have a hatch. That by no means doesn't mean it's not there though just means its hard lol. To get me there it took tons of changes and more help then I can write in text from sooo many people. Dave def. had the biggest hand in it happening tho, I'd be lost without his guidence. It def. requires tons of testing on the meter. Being stuck with your port in the middle isn't neccassarily a bad thing, technically mines in the middle tho I have to angle it towards the driver side, when I do that I see significant gains.

At one point in the season I doubled my power and saw barely a 2 db gain, in theory I should see a 3 db gain from double'n my power but thats why they call it theory, in practice its usually less then the 3 as I proved this year. There's so many variables that go into that & every time you make one change it changes other things. It def. sounded a hell of alot better yesterday, sounded **** good esp. compaired to the Aftershock show. btw what freq. were you using, if my memory is right which i doubt I thought you were using a pretty low note, hard to get loud on the mic using low notes, of course the tuning of your enclosure is a big factor.

Thanks for the congrats Mr. Slate, you were at Motor Jam right? I am so bad with names, I am good with faces but pretty sure I got to meet you there although I may have been "rude" and not properly introduced myself cuz I was pretty over excited that day as it was my 1st show with all new gear. Those that know me well know that I am like a crack head on "game day". I get so excited that half the time I forget to close my vents, or move seat or something stupid like that. Normally I am pretty laid back but get me near an SPL lane and I get all crazy and ignorant lol. I actually started making a little check list of my run rituals so I stop forgetting due to excitement. But I digress, were you the one with the cigar?

Thanks guys, this season was a blast. I'm always the quiet one hiding behind the computer so I don't really talk to many of you. There are a few of you that always come by and say hi, I appreciate that. Thanks so much for the trophy you guys got for us, I really love it. It's the 1st trophy that really included me, cause all those others in the garage were won by Steve in competitions. We still have two more shows left in 2009, can't wait to see what 2010 brings for all of us. Thanks again to all of you, without all you competitors none of this would be the success that it's been this year.

Dude, please don't appologize. I understand completely. I am an "older" version of you. I still get excited about our hobby.
I've tried to tone my online antics down over the last few months. It's not worth me getting my blood in a boil arguing.
The only person I argue with now is TJ but we have a love/hate relationship and we're both too stubborn to change, lol.

meter that ish, and what amp are you using the 2500d?

SPL Blazer

Yeah, it's the 2500d and it's at the 2 ohm so I can drop them to .5 later on for some burps. I have the box tuned to 33Hz so it would hit the lows pretty decent, but it doesn't do so well on the 40-60 range, so as soon as I have some time for myself I'm going to cut a few inches off the port and bring it up to 40Hz.

are you playing with the intelli q at all or not? its kind of peaky if you tune that right, if you have the switch turned off say bye to the ssf but its much more smooth (in my opinion). I used to swear by the intelli q until i used two amps and had to tune both, so i flipped the switch and like the sound much more.
That amp will come to life @ .5 compared to 2 ohm too

I keep everything off, I'm running everything through my RF EPX2, so i don't bother using eq's on the headunit or amps. I'll keep it at 2 ohms for now, but drop it to .5 if I do any shows, not really any left for me this year, just the USACi show the 25th in CT.

You won't see me actually compete at an NESPL show, just wouldn't be right to compete at my own shows. When I run a show for dB Drags I usually do the Bass Race part, but not the SPL portion. I might compete next season when I run some TNESPL events out here, at least I don't own that org, so I can compete in their WooferCooker Pro class and maybe try to get points for their Finals.

i did my best #'s ever with M3MojoQ1-15's, great subs.
now if there were louder 15's out there, it would have been nice to try them. The Mojo's each held up to 5k each in my crx, four 2500d's total... dont knock them Nate!

Dude, please don't appologize. I understand completely. I am an "older" version of you. I still get excited about our hobby.
I've tried to tone my online antics down over the last few months. It's not worth me getting my blood in a boil arguing.
The only person I argue with now is TJ but we have a love/hate relationship and we're both too stubborn to change, lol.
It was a pleasure meetng you as well.
BTW, are you coming to the USACi show on the 25th?

Couldn't be too much older then me, I'm 32 :-) I'm trying to make things work out for the 25th but as it stands right now it's not looking good, I'd say 40% I will make it at best. I'm not a huge USACi fan but I'd love to make it anyways esp. since there are so few shows left. I never give up till all hope is lost tho.

and are those two soundstream dtr amps you have in your sig? never heard of the dtr series...

I might not be able to make it cuz I care for my elderly grandmother (its a fulltime job) and she can't be left alone. She just got back home last Saturday after 3 months in the hospital. Normally my mother would be there on the weekend to care for her but that weekend she has a work thing. I'm trying to work it out for my sister to come down from northern Maine that weekend but i dunno yet if that will happen.

Yes they are Soundstreams, the DTR's are new models this year. I had 2 DTR1.900's before these and did some clamp testing, they put out 625-630 @ 13 volts @ 2 ohms but were rated for 600 @ 2 ohm @ 14.4 volts (if my memory serves me correct). I haven't got to clamp test the 3400's yet but I can tell ya they are stable @ .25 ohm for burps, on music not so much hahaha. Don't tell Grizz tho muahaha.

I need way more power for these subs and for my goals next season, but I must say I like them. Their footprint is tiny!

A pair of Mojo 12's worked well for me this weekend :) 150.6 in Stock 2...if they were D1's then I really could've had some fun ;)
They are definitely a very durable sub...I demoed the hell outta my system on Saturday and they stunk but never quit kickin'
Built like a tank too...thats gotta be the stiffest cone I've ever seen!

We had almost an inch here last night. Got about the same amount on Thursday morning too, changed over really quick both days and went back to rain. The weather is looking pretty decent all week, low to mid 60's til Friday, hopefully it holds off til Sunday so we can get our final night show done.

mojos get loud but there will be a point where you will be able to put gobs of power to them and they will get no louder i have seen this done many times good strong sub i used a set of pb blacks back in the day in a seald box with 300 watts to get me my stat record and i beat the crap out of them svc`s.
