Hello everyone I'm from Richmond, VA as the title states.. I've dabbled a bit in car audio ever since I could drive and always made sure I had a louder system than my friends or anyone else I encountered lol.

I'm interested in competing but I don't want to get blown out the water lol, I personally think my new system is ridiculously loud but I've never been to a comp before.

I just went to my first one a couple weeks back, had my *** handed to me, but it was a learning experience and pretty fun so jump in and you'll figure it all out soon enough.

man with two T2's and that 2000.1bd at 1ohm you should **** near be able to hold your own, the last comp I attended classes where by what your amp did at 4ohms (regardless what load your running at)and the number of woofers ran, I got screwed because my amp did 1000+ at 4ohms and that's where I was running it, so hence having my *** handed to me(144.1 on music, put on)but it was nice to know what it did then but I have changed a bunch of stuff so next go around I will be using an amp that rates low at 4ohms, or from what several people have told me I might do well in meca type comp but I have no clue how they work?

I can see how that would sting a bit.

no offense but alot of it has to do with the builder (you) in your case. paul is lucky but you could do alot better(ie testing tuning etc....i just get lucky because i do what i know is a fact. :) )....i will shut him up regardless. :thumbsup:
