    One my first USACI comp 0-300w 135.2db

    Hey all, I'm finaly back online and now up in VA!

    I won 1st place in my very first competition running Soundstream. I was in the 0-300 watt class.

    Amplifier: Soundstream Rubicon 302 2 channel
    Subwoofer: Soundstream EG15-X 15 inch
    Enclosure: 3.9 cf sealed box

    Db score: 135.2

    1st Place baby!

    I just wanted to share.





    July 17th 2006 will be a day I will never forget. The day I was so close to death and had to be put on life support. Thank you God that I'm still here.

    Re: One my first USACI comp 0-300w 135.2db

    I shouldbe on the usaci site with my spl numbers. I'll look around and try to find it.

    On porting the box I can't because soundstream doesn't recomend porting with this subwoofer.

    My new plans will be to go with 4 trantula 12's ported walled off im my monte carlo. It'll probably cost me around 2 grabd for the set up and I want to try to stay in the 301-900w range. I'll look and find some relly oldschool ss amps like the 5.0 or 10.0 amplifiers and see what I can acomplish.

    you do realize they have re-rated all the oldschool cheater amps and you cant get those low "factory" rated amps anymore.

    just because a company does not recommend ported, does not mean it cant play in a ported enclosure. it means it will not sound as good in a ported enclosure, and it cant handle as much power on a daily basis (more mechanical excursion is possible because of the vent)

    if you dont understand this - then i dont recommend yourself building a wall lol

    Do you have a link for the amps that have been re-rated? Also I will have a shop doing the wall enclosure, I'm still new to box building myself.

    if u got to soundoff.org and click on the button on the left side of the page that says everything else..then go to amp ratings 1997-2003 look for your model number..and that is your 4 ohm rating and if it is not on there just divided the highest rating and divided it down to 4 ohms

    Re: One my first USACI comp 0-300w 135.2db

    Thank you aphinney for the help. Well I took a look at the link and they rate the soundstream Ref. Class A10.0 @ 50w 4 ohm. Am I missing something here? Or can I run six of these bad boys.

    But now I'm redoing my whole system from top to bottom. Oh and who ever said 15's don't sound good with rock? Phuck if they don't!

    Sorry, it's just my first 15in sub set up.

    Thank you. You should've seen the look on some of these guys faces when I told them what amp I had.

    I have pics of my system in the classified section if you guys would like to see them.

    I do have to say it's all in the box.
