    Yea man it is no joke. You have to be very dedicated and build, test, build, test, etc... You have a LOT of work to do if you are still asking about organizations, etc... Anyone can pretty much do 140's if they know how to buy equipment and build a simple ported box or whatever it may be. Getting in the range of 150+ is where the real work comes in.

    Try posting this on termpro and see what the guys over there say.

    Re: What all do I need to compete in the World Finals

    Yea I figured that. I think I can pull maybe one or two more dbs out of my setup. I can turn up the amp and mess around with the different settings. But It prolly wont be enough for world finals

    Sounds familiar. Exactly my point though. It is NOT easy.

    box seems awfully **** small for those 2 15s. Try one 15 tuned higher than 32 and with more port and air space

    Yea Its kinda small. But I had that one built. I have never built a ported box before so i had it built for me.
    I am planning on gettin another one buil tuned alot higher. Just for competition.

    I just posted the same answer on another thread but, I would go to as many shows where pros will be and try to talk to them sometimes you'll get lucky and they help ya out others will be nasty. I learned thru out my years from a few of them what to do and not to do! Check out the iasca, meca, usaci websites for the rules and classes. That will help you determine a little better what direction you'll want to go in.
