First you gotta rip out the old system that could only muster a 151.6... (I could have pulled a 153 or so out of it, but that's not loud enough.)

YOU RIP IT ALL OUT!!!

Pics of what? Me slapping the UPS man?

I have 1 sub, I should have 4.

Ill have the subs either tomorrow or later on tonight if the retards at UPS can actually pull their heads out of somewhere..... But short of hell freezing over, I don't see that happening. They should be here tomorrow even though they show the package still being out for delivery tonight. (8:31pm)


ALWAYS HAVE YOUR STUFF SHIPPED TO YOU THROUGH FED-EX!!! It's cheaper and they don't screw it up 100% of the time!

With every procession in box building there is one that must be eliminated due to not being so loud....

And so this beloved box, though not that loud, is being decomissioned....

She mustered a 147.0 with 2 mtx 81000ds and 2 dd 9915s on the new TL.

I heard a joke today:

A bus carrying only ugly people crashes into an oncoming truck, and everyone inside dies. They then get to meet their maker, and because of the grief they have experienced; He decides to grant them one wish each, before they enter Paradise.

They're all lined up, and God asks the first one what the wish is. "I want to be gorgeous," and so God snaps His fingers, and it is done.

The second one in line hears this and says "I want to be gorgeous too."

Another snap of His fingers and the wish is granted.

This goes on for a while but when God is halfway down the line, the last guy in line starts laughing. When there are only ten people left, this guy is rolling on the floor, laughing.

Finally, God reaches this guy and asks him what his wish will be.

The guy calms down and says: " Make 'em all ugly again."

With every procession in box building there is one that must be eliminated due to not being so loud....

And so this beloved box, though not that loud, is being decomissioned....

She mustered a 147.0 with 2 mtx 81000ds and 2 dd 9915s on the new TL.

More pics are on the way.

Why so low? Several reasons:

1. It flexed like a mofo (10cf)
2. The port flexed like a mofo
3. Box was too big
4. Only 2.4kW
5. Port up subs up - that's not the loudest alignment....

Yeah I am lucky actually. Without my parents help, there is no way I'd be able to do half the stuff I do. :D

I bought the amps with some of the winnings money from NSCA nationals last year. Mom paid for my nationals entry fee. 1/2 the winnings went to mom (big profit for her) and the other 1/2 went into amps.

This laptop I now have (w/17" screen) I busted my arse for 2 months and I own 1/2 of it. Mom owns the other 1/2.

The L7's I just busted my butt for too.
The termlab came from selling my mtx amps. I miss those ultra simple, bullet proof, powerful bastards. But they were ~2dB down from the zaps.

Basically none of this would be possible w/o mom and dad, so THANKS MOM AND DAD! :D

I may be spoiled rotten, but I am appreciative and not concieded at all - ima lucky bastard! :D

Thus far I love it. This new one is a Toshiba s526 i think. I origionally bought a s509 open box item at Best Buy for 1250 but it was a POS as the HD would demagnitize in the boot sector. So I said "Fthis" returned it, got this one paying some more money. Total paid for this about 1900. After the 150 dollar gift card they gave me and after the rewards zone points giving me another 85 bux I'd say it ran me 1665 or so.... (btw - mom split the laptop with me, so we both own it.)

BTW - At the show my truck qualified with a 147.4 due to severe skipping problems with the changer. (Remember this sensor needs a full 4 second burp.)

A bit of experimentation resulted in the conclusion that I can't play the first 8 seconds of any track. If I do, it skips like crazy. If I wait till after 8 seconds, it never skips.


After ironing out the skipping problems, my truck did a 151.6 @ 44hz at this show for a first place in street C! Now to try several things to see what happens.

As with any difficult goal not yet achieved the goal date has been pushed back 2 full months. Now it's do or die, state finals is a 3x event here in FL on the certified cutoff date. My 151.6 (twice certified now) will likely make the cut for finals, but if not, I don't go....so common sense says up that score!!!)

You all witnessed the buildup and results for box #6. Im going to try sell it for CHEAP in classifieds rather than burn it. It has excellent low end extension and a somewhat flat response. Look for my post there.

Box #7 and 8 are on the way!

Box #9 is still in planning as is box #10

Any guesses on how this setup did and at what note?

Hint: box is too small, limiting power by virtue of a high reactive impeadance and restricting cone movement, and raised the loudest note WAY too high.

Hint 2: not as loud as X box....

Ever wonder how we come up with power real time and do it cheaply?

DMM (yellow) ---- 2.99
Clamp meter ----10.99

Total cost ---- 13.98

Being able to figure out that your reactive impeadance is 4.5ohms at 59hz and that your amps are STILL doing 1600+ watts each into that load at 11.3v ---- priceless.

Quick question, I noticed you had your subs pointed in different directions, is cancellation a worry/problem... I dont know I was just curious?

Did you try facing the subs in the same direction, meaning one set firing into side, then the other firing into the back of the first set? Just outta curiosity, I know you've been doing this for a while though!

Those boxes are 2.94 cubes before ports, sub, and brace displacements. So probably 2.7 or so for 2 L7 12s.

The very next boxes will be top secret until finalized testing with no pic posting of the boxes....just test results..

The next boxes after that will be 3.5 per pair after displacement - if the ones above fail to get loud.....

well **** dude. thats a fantastic score. now get rid of those L7's and buy a parthenon and strap all that power you can to it. wall off the jeep, and hope it does not explode.

but my question is, how are the windows holding up? unless you bullet proofed them, i bet they are flexing like a mo****er, same goes with the roof...

wouldnt that gain you some .01 dbs?

i hope for god sake this isnt your only mode of transportation your a putting all this power into?

and who is #1? the gates beast? lol =)

Silver always works best because the gloss makes it more aerodynamic :D

Well right now I'm almost broke so I cant really afford a parthenon...lol Though I would like a sponsorship MR DAN WIGGENS! ;) :D

Stock OEM vehicle, can't wall it, cant use bullet proof windows, and yuppers, this is my daily driver and ONLY mode of transportation. I can tell my yota is getting weary at 253,000 miles, but she only has to last a little while longer until next may. Then im out of the country for 3.5 years, but will have $$ in the form of money left over from a student loan for a new truck.... Then this yota will get a LOT of TLC....

Where are you going for 3.5 years?
Can't wall it - no way in hell a partheneon would work anyway!

BTW, can I borrow your amps while you're gone?;)
