What would a respectable score be for one memphis pr12 on 600 watts?

Music or burps? What do your box specs look like?

With an upper 50's tuning, it should be a nice score if doing high frequency burps. I wouldn't be surprised by something in the 142-143 range...just depends on how well you know the vehicle. I've seen a CRX do ~149 outlaw with three bottom line Powerbass 12's, like the $30 ones, and a cheapy 4 channel amp that couldn't have been doing any more than 500 watts.

142-143 not bad yeah the festiva likes high tuning i know the car pretty well. its not in the same class as a rex though :(
