what if you do like a 154.7 or something first run inside and then you just all the way turnt it up ;) and then did a 155.3 second run, would you dq that person for being in with the car that loud or just take the first # or make a rerun occur outside?

SPL Blazer

Good question. I think we'd take your first number and make you do a rerun to back up the higher score. If you did the 155+ on the 1st run your score would be held at 154.9 and you'd have to back it up from outside. If anyone is really burping a 155+ then chances are pretty **** good that you know exactly what your hitting and you'd already know to be outside the vehicle on your 1st run. This past season the only people doing more than a 154 were the guys in Super Stock, so I'll be surprised to see any Stock class competitors get close to a 155, possibly some No Wall guys but Stock will be hard to reach that number.

i can think of a few... but i hear ya!
you are right, we know exactly what, where, when, and how to burp ;) to the tenth!

I spent the better part of 1.5yrs rolling my volume up to a 49.8 or so and then do the next run 150+ just because of our 150 rule. Between the tint and skipping decks i was just sol. lol
We enforce this rule from a show to show basis. If you do a 150 run then you have to get out. If its under you can stay in the vehicle for the 2nd run.

So now I just do ssnw in Drag and Pro No Wall in TNESPL. Much easier. lol Even if I'm not the loudest in that class I can always count on competition. :) Its no fun to run in a class by yourself. imo

Nope, you're allowed 2 amps, or 4 mono amps strapped, meaning 4 mono block amps strapped to make 2 amps. This applies to Subwoofer amps only, this does not include amps for mids and highs.

Ok, I think we've changed everything that needs to be changed as far as classes and rules. What you see on the website will be the official rules for the 2010 season. Consider the rules discussion over.

We've made changes such as the addition of a new Amateur class, the termination of a Stock class and a Slammin Bass class. As well as changes in equipment limits in the various classes. We've eliminated some of the gray area in the rules, while also trying to keep the rules at a minimum to avoid taking the fun out of competing.

On a side note, we have a new laptop for next season, so all the issues we had with Termlab freezing and whatever should be gone for 2010.

For 2010 we plan to run the Most Improved Score series again, but for 2010 we plan on adding to it. In addition to the Amateur and Stock class we will also do this for the Super Stock and SS No Wall classes, and possibly Most Improved Female competitor. We will be working on a points system as well, we'll announce the details on all of this at a later date.

I thought of this. In 2009 Mike Gladu never even attempted to run the Slammin bass part of the show, Keith did a couple times. Mike found out the hard way at Finals that his subs can't handle 30 seconds of music. In the Slammin 5 class there was only 1 person that competed in it at each of the shows we ran this format at. If I knew we'd get more than 1 person at every other show to compete in Slammin 5 then I'd keep it. I think we ran Slammin Bass maybe 6 times in 2009, and of those 6 times we had one person in Slammin 5 3 times, I don't remember ever having more than 1 person in that class. Having a class for 1 person isn't competitive, it's just a matter of handing out a trophy. It was almost the same deal in Slammin 4 class too. Keith was the only one in that class almost every single time we ran it. Buying trophies for a class with nobody in it was a waste of money and a waste of everyones time. If I knew we'd see more competitors that would fit into Slammin 5 then I'd keep it, but I don't see that happening.

It's funny, I mentioned back on page 15 that the Slammin 5 class was eliminated, yet not one person said anything about this. Maybe if somebody had brought to my attention that someone was going to build for the class or at least said SOMETHING about it, I may have reconsidered it.

I'll take a look at all the Slammin classes tonight and see what I can come up with as far as altering the size restrictions per class.

Nothing to beat Mike Gladu, lol.

SPL Blazer
12-27-2009, 12:23 AM
lol, I'm sure. My issue with Slammin 5 has been that the only competitors that qualified for this class in 2009 were you, Buster and Mike Gladu. You did one show, Buster did I think 3 of them and Mike Gladu did none. The scores Buster was doing in Slammin 5 were lower than guys in Slammin 3, and since I have no idea if Mike even plans on running Slammin Bass it doesn't make much sense to keep offering a class for just one person.

I updated the site and the rules for Slammin Bass. I added the Slammin 5 class again. I'l give it to half way through the season, if there isn't more than one person in that class then I see no reason to keep it going.

12-27-2009, 06:01 PM
ok i dont think this as gone over yet. ok new rules say if over 155 you need to be outside of the car. ok no problem with that. so if you do a 56 on your first run and have to be outside the car for the next run. now say you dont have a remote or tinted windows that the remote will not go though. you cant afford a new h/u, and decide that you can just take the h/u out of the car to run outside by extending the wires. so if you take out the h/u and have a hole in the dash can you plug it ,or do you half to keep the big hole in the dash? if you were to remove you h/u for daily to be outside for comps,

Mr. Slate
12-27-2009, 06:08 PM
Smoke, most people know the number that they are capable of before the shows. No unexperienced "newcomer" is going to show up and pop anything close to that number.

12-27-2009, 07:17 PM
if you are capable of doing a 155+,i bet u can afford a better headunit,if not atleast a better remote.slate,earlier in the thread you talked about coming to oswego to compete with mcvay,what were you running at the time,and what kinda scores were u seeing?

SPL Blazer
12-27-2009, 07:49 PM
I see what Smokey is saying, he wants to know if you can plug up the hole the radio would leave if you had to remove it. The answer to that would be no, because without being in the No Wall or Super Stock classes you can't remove the radio from the dash.

Like Slate said though, if anyone was going to come close to a 155 they'd already know for sure. Also, a 155 doesn't come easy, or cheap. To get to that level chances are you'll already be in the No Wall class where you're allowed to have a radio outside the vehicle. If your in any of the Super Stock classes you can remove the radio from the dash, it'll be up to you if you use that radio for burps, or just buy a better radio and use that one.

This will be something everyone needs to address on their own too, because dB Drags won't allow you inside the vehicle over 140 db, and TNESPL has a150 db limit. So be ready for the 2010 season, because rules will be followed. If anyone hits higher than the limit on their first run, then their score will be capped at that limit. So if you hit a 142 in Drags then your score will say 140.0 and you will have to step outside the vehicle for any additional runs.

ok so if your in no wall doing 49s all year then step up in to 55 with a mircal i am just speakin in genral not happening just a what if this happens. now can the hole where the radio was be pluged some how to repsent the radio being there after it was removered for a burp. then back for daily use

SPL Blazer
12-27-2009, 08:45 PM
If you really wanted to I guess you could, doubt it would make any difference though. You'd be better off just buying a 2nd headunit and running that from your trunk like the other Super Stock guys.

I guess that depends on what kind of competitions you plan on doing. I don't see you driving up here to New England for an NESPL comp, so your bet would be dB Drags. In drags you'd be looking at possibly doing Street C, thats two 15's and you can use your two bass amps, two batteries and car off.

In the next week I should have a new section added to the rules for vans and pick ups. They are rare in the NESPL Stock classes, but we did have several in the Amateur classes in 2009. So just to clarify some things with those types of vehicles I'll be adding some rules on enclosures for those types of vehicles.

I know we said the rules were final, but we have made one minor change to the rules in Slammin Bass. Since the Slammin 3 class has no limit on the number of batteries we have decided to also remove the 15 volt limit. We haven't seen anyone come through the lanes in Slammin using 16+ volts without a wall, but on the off chance someone does they will be placed in the Slammin 3 class, providing their surface area doesn't force them into the Slammin 4 class.



Also, in the next couple weeks we'll be on FaceBook too, we'll have the link on the main page when it's all set up.

I was talking to a couple local competitors, and a couple of guys from other parts of the country too and I'm now wondering if we should have a power limit in the Stock classes. Something like 5000 watts. I know TNESPL has this as a rule in their WooferCooker classes, so I'm not sure if I want to do it....don't wanna make it seem like I'm copying their classes. But on the other hand, having a power limit will help keep competitors costs down when it comes to buying amps and batteries and make it more competitive. There are guys in the USA doing numbers in the low 150's with under 1000 watts on a pair of 12's. I'm doing 149's with a pair of 10's and less than 2500 watts. Competitors need to learn more about getting loud with less, than trying to buy massive amounts of power and/or batteries to compensate for their lack of db's. Anyone have an opinion on this? If I do this I want to have it in place by the end of this month, so people have plenty of notice before the season actually starts up.

SICK GV
01-17-2010, 12:35 PM
Its not a bad idea. But come to think of it I havent seen many guys go into the stock classes with anything bigger then a 5k. I'm pretty sure just me and Dave L. had monster amps and they are only 5k's. When T.J. used his 8k he went into SS N/W so I dont see much changing if you enforce this rule unless you know of guys coming to compete with more. If a competitor finds a way of craming lots of power and stays within the rules I dont see why they would have to change classes. It wouldn't be fair to put them against N/W guys who dont have to worry about equipment placement and have 3x the power and batt bank.

spltuscon
01-17-2010, 07:27 PM
I know of a few (probably 3-4) that plan on it and would no longer qualify for stock classes even though they are newbies. TNESPL has a Pro Stock division that you can move to if you have over 5 k and an otherwise "stock" system where as NESPL doesn't...something to consider, because then anyone with over 5k would have to be in SSNW.
Personally I kinda like the idea, since I'm a fan of rules that keep costs down for competitors. You definitely don't need over 5k just to do a decent number.

SPL Blazer
01-18-2010, 02:08 AM
You have a valid point Dave. Since the season hasn't started yet I have no idea what people are buying for power, but at the same time I don't want to cater the classes for the benefit of a few people either. It seems to me that the only reason you need more than 5K in a Stock class is because you haven't got what it takes to get loud, so you buy more power to try and compensate for this. It will **** for guys when they dump big money on high wattage amps and then have their *** handed to them by someone with half the power, but this is also the nature of competition. I just don't want to see competitors lose because they can't afford the 10,000 watt amp or the 16,000 watt amp and the next guy can.

We were talking it over this morning and here's what we're thinking. Since there might be a couple people that have already bought their power for the Stock classes and it might be more than 5K, we'll add a power limit of 10K to the Stock classes. We'll see how the 2010 season works out with this. And depending on how many people we have in each of the classes we may make some changes for 2011. If we don't get a decent number of competitors in Am3 or SS3 then we'll look into eliminating those classes, I hear that SS2 is going to be a big class this season so we'll see what happens. A 10K limit is more than enough for the Stock classes and will be a starting point, if there are only a hand full with more than 5K by the end of the season then you can pretty much count on a 5K limit for 2011, but we'll wait til then. I think in 2009 there as only 2 people with 5K, both of them are jumping up to No Wall in 2010.

Guys with more than 5K for this season will have to compete in the pro classes when we run the TNESPL shows this season, hope they remembered this. I believe thats 5K clamped too, not just rated power.

I just wanted to add something for the upcoming season. I will be changing up the registration forms for the 2010 season, on the forms will be a line for the make and model of each competitors subs and amp they are running. I will be making every attempt to inspect and verify that everyone is in the correct class when they register and also when they compete. At certain events a picture will also be taken of each competitors system. If for any reason someone is caught swapping out their subs or amp to anyone for any reason they will be DQ'd from the event without any refund, with the possibility of a suspension from additional shows. I've been made aware that this was an issue with a few people during the 2009 season, and there was a rule forbidding this. The ONLY exception I will make is that a competitor blows a sub or an amp and replaces it with a spare, and ONLY with a spare. Using an Identical sub or amp from a team mate or friend will NOT be allowed unless it is also their Spare. Competitors must have a complete system at all times. Using the identical gear from a team mate will not be allowed. If anyone see's this type of cheating going on you asked to pull one of us aside during the show and say something. Your name will not be mentioned and the person in question WILL have their vehicle inspected and any appropriate action will be taken. This goes for everyone, regardless of who you are. I will not pull favors for anyone that is caught cheating. I will be out in the crowds a lot more this season, so I will be watching.

Registration forms are for NESPL, not for other competitors viewing. If any pics are taken, it will be during a pre-inspection, not in the lanes, there's no time for that when you reach that point, this will be only at random events, not at every one of them. My plan for registrations this season will be to have each competitor fill out their form, when they are set then a judge will do a visual inspection of their gear and vehicle to determine their class, mostly for Amateurs, after the inspection is set the judge will keep the form and bring it to the booth where your name and class will be loaded into TermLab. Once your info is loaded your all set to compete. I don't plan on doing inspections of systems after someone competes, unless they have had some type of malfunction or blown a sub or woofer and then come back for another run. If someone questions a competitors system after they have made their runs I will do a visual inspection, but I may decide to charge a small fee just like the other orgs, more of a way to keep jealous people from complaining about a system when there are no grounds for it. Keep in mind that this is for NESPL events, at TNESPL and dB Drag events we go by their rules and not our own.
