Question. I have a Hyundai 2 door hatchback and it has a reardeck/beauty panel thing that covers the hatch area but only snaps in and is completely removable. The relevant rules are as follows (for the street division)


13. Rear deck must maintain factory appearance, have no holes and must have some type of upholstery/covering.
14. Modifications to the vehicle’s cargo area are limited to Non-Permanent Modifications. Cutting of metal is prohibited.
15. Any brackets, panels, 3rd row seats, and/or non-structural supports in the cargo area (behind the back seat and lower than
the top of the back seat) that can be unbolted or unscrewed may be removed, provided they can be reinstalled using factory fasteners and do not violate any other rules in section D.

So my question is, am I allowed to remove that piece for competing?

It DOES sit lower than the back seats (by a few inches).

I would say line 15 answers your question.

It depends on your cone area and fusing before the amp.

Cone area is figured by the radius of your woofer/s squared times pi

Then you add amount of the fuse by your amp x 10

If you don't have a fuse within ~12in of your amp then it goes by the rms of your amp or one half of the peak or something like that.

Yeah, but I'm pretty sure when I asked on the MECA forum someone told me I had to leave it in, plus rule 13 kind of confused me as well...was just making sure :)

EDIT: Nevermind I was thinking of a completely different post (Asked about dbdrag rules on termpro) I'm not even a member of the MECA forum lol

Moving to Columbus (Dublin) in May :)



Also kind of depends on how small I can get my fusing....right now I'd be in Street 4, would be nice if I could get down to 3 or even 2....

You just get like a short burp before it blows? I'm running an SAZ-2500D and single 18". kushy_dreams thought I may be able to get by with a 70A but I've got a 300A in there now, lulz.

As2/s2/m2 depending on box orientation.


Fyi the 2500should be able to be burped off 70a of fusing with no issue

Will I pop the fuse everytime though? The cheapest I can find 70A ANL fuses is like $5 each so that's an expensive burp, haha. Might just have to invest in a different fuse holder for comps...

Do they make any kind of MINI ANL adapter that would fit inside a standard ANL fuse holder?

You might wanna get a mini ANL fuse block for cheaps. I suggest knu koncepts. Also their fuses arent too bad either. Hell if you run it right you can get a lot of power through a little fuse if you arent clipping and your voltage stays up. :P

Also I have some 1/0 4gauge adapters if you wanna borrow or buy

Yeah but they definitely don't have 70A mini ANLs, only 60A and 80A, lol.

Might just pick up on of these (http://www.ebay.com/itm/WATERPROOF-MINI-ANL-Fuse-Holder-0-2-4-Gauge-Car-Amplifier-Install-/380421252154?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5892dfa43a#ht_3427wt_905) since it claims to accept 0 gauge.

That works and you might ask around I know there are guys that can get 70 amp mini anl. or do a combo of fuses, 30 and a 40

bubbagumper6 The reason I was suggesting a 70a is because it is the most he could run to get into as2/s2. IIRC you can run multiple fuses in line with each other, but I'm not sure if they make 35a fuses or not. Amateur street is a max of 1 fuse though.

thegreatestpenn Yep I did a lot of reading this winter :graduate:

there are 70amini anls, just harder to find. same with 35a fuses. your best bet is either 2 35a or 1 30a and 1 40a mini anl run together for burps/parkandpound. they should hold up. you can always practice by trying your usual high volume on that fusing before the event to see if they hold. if they do great! if they don't then you can just roll in to your high volume until the fuses blow.

yes it gets pricey and you can always go to the next class up if buying fuses is too troublesome. but a little money into fuses to learn the fusegame goes a long way when you are winning.

Yeah I found some cheap 70A's on amazon, $2.30 for two. :)

Yeah I figured that out after looking at the classifications a bit closer :)
