View Full Version : Meter anywhere in upstate NY? (ROC)

12-06-2004, 10:18 PM
anyone who lives around here (i know of a couple) know anywhere who has a mic for public use (for a fee im sure)

im in greece specifically, but anywhere within half hour - 45 minutes is fine with me

i would love to get on a mic once i get all my enw stuff installed

an RTA and somoene with expierence would be of great importance.

im in syracuse

req if you find somewhere around you or within a reasonable distance from either of us let me know, and if its sometime spring or later maybe we could meet there or whatever to see what we each drop.

(gotta wait till spring cus i got components, hopefully new alt, and bunch of deadening coming)

well add me to the list. I heard a friend of mine said he has someone in syracuse with one. I told him to check into it for me. And I live right between u guys. So you guys can meet here in the middle. I have met forman from here and he lives in rochester. Great guy. I am glad I met up with him from this. I am game for a meet for all of us that are close if you guys want.

sounds cool to me. but i need a new care before i can show off my stuff. ill still bring it all and let you guys see it. but i dont wanna waste my time on my junky car.

unless everyone in the country donates $0.25 to me so i can go to college and get a new car. that would be sweet.

294,923,093 x .25= $73,730,773.25

id be rich.

Does anyone know of any in lower NY or CT? Im trying to find one, but all the shops near me **** and none have anything or do anything. None have oscilloscopes or even make cars to compete.

12-07-2004, 03:12 PM
my local shop has a truck with *i think* two or four 18 solo-x's

i dont know if it competes or it just sits there though.

12-07-2004, 03:49 PM
your talking about IU??? theres 2 18's and i think 12 amps in there and like 8 bats. I had a friend that was a manager there but he left there to go to that new automall place and does the eclipse shop there.

12-07-2004, 04:11 PM
yea i knew it was eaither 2 or 4, but if you got 2 soloX's than it dosnt matter does it ;)

they were powered (last i knew) by the old RF amps that were black with the grinded fins - kinda shaped like this - / \

they sandblasted them and polished them chrome. the boxes were made of welded diamond plate.

i never saw anything else because it was lifted and like 6 feet off the ground. :p:

i saw it at the parkinglot of liverpool highschool football game once. i guess some kids dad owns the place. whatever :p: IU ***** mehballs. even though they are a DEI retailer ^_^

i have such a limited selection of shops its my area :(

but since we got a couple guys ill see if i can ask around and if anyone finds a mic within reasonable drive, definetly let me know i wanna see what i can pull out of my car since id like to get into some comps if im worthy.

sorry i missed ya VOA, but i got there at 12:30 like they told me to be there, and i left when everyone else had to go cuz i had 80 miles to drive :p:
