Actually, I am shipping them to Scott at FI Audio so he can rebuild them to do 1500 rms !!!!!!!!!! My warranty thru RE Audio was up last december when i had them reconned THE 1ST TIME. One sub has fried voil coil and lead wire, and the other sub is hooked up and working like JACK THE BEAR. I will give MECA a try this weekend with the 1 good sub as long as it doesn;t take a $hit on me this week............

Cool, I am still tweeking out my new setup. I kinda miss having two subs. Thinking about finding a subs that can take 2000rms in this new folded transmissionline box. But Soundstream doesn't have anythink like that. Sad :(

I went down 2 the Specialist to register yesterday and over heard someone on the phone saying not many people hav registered, but they expect a good turnout the day of the event. Plus- The judging for the event will be IN THE SPECIALISTS' INSTALL BAY!!!! Unless they mean just for the sql or show & shine. We'll see what happens.

Why the switch from 18s to 12s? I'm hoping to get my sx's reconned soon, but it won't be b4 the 6/6 USACI show ! I can't belive MECA won't let anyone use cd's with cursing or foul language to use on their runs! http://www.mecacaraudio.com/2010rulebook.pdf

2. Competitor must play musical track(s), (i.e. songs) in which the bass notes vary and are not sustained for the entire pass. No tones, sweeps, and/or bass only
tracks. The TermLab “spectrum analyzer” will be displayed and used to determine that bass notes are not sustained.
3. Competitors must use commerically available music tracks. Burnt CD’s, iPods, MP3 players, etc. will be allowed at 1X, 2X, and 3X contests, however, at
MECA World Finals ONLY original mass produced CD’s may be used.
4. Competitors who opt to use a CD Changer or Multi CD head unit must remove all other CD’s to ensure that the Judges are able to verify the CD being
used for their “Drive-by SPL Parade” test.
5. Competitors may only use one source unit during pass.

7. Lyrics in song may not include any foul or offensive language.

I can bury my mids and highs with my sub stage. I could play any song and nobody would hear a dirty word during the show... not that I plan on attending any more MECA shows on purpose...

I want to go up in there and blast sum 2livecrew or tooshort. But, I'd have to barrow your trucks... Or I could put a 12 in my car that can take 2kwrms.... But my box isnt a high output box... better make that sub special....

The mic is on a stand in the seat of the vehicle. It's like 24" up from the seat and 20" from the windshield.

Street 2 (1st place) & Phat 15 (1st place for best single 15 inch sub system) Thats me:D
Mic goes on either driver or passenger side (ur choice) seat,it's on a stand 20 inches from windshield faced forward.Check out the 1st video i posted from the comp in the s-10, the mic is on the passenger seat. The MECA rules say 150 db being the highest for SPL & 135 db for drive by:wow::crazy:

I'm 148.x MECA style, but I don't know what class I'd be in.
4x 10" subs and no fuses on 2000 watt @ 1ohm amp if anyone knows. S. Stern said go by half the max rated wattage (2000/2 = 1000), but I still can't figure what class I'd be in... not that I'm looking to enter a MECA comp anytime soon.
