    need help getting a few more dbs

    Okay, my system setup is as follows:
    Pioneer DEH-P80MP
    1 15" RE SX in a 3.5 cu ft tuned to 32Hz
    1 American bass 100.1

    I can hit around 141.6 dB, but i need help getting my average to 139.9 for bass races, I was using "Throw it up" by lil jon, and averaged around 136.X, is there anything i can do, i have my amp running at about 1900 watts, and my voltage gets real low while doing bass races...I already posted a thread on the Big3 in my car..which seems like i wont be able to do it, and i really don't want to get a new alt, if anyone has any suggestions, let me know, thanks

    I would think you can do a big three on any car. other then that I would think maybe tune higher on the box.

    take out inline fuses, should help a little. Strong battery, And a new alt would be best.

    like was said in the other thread, still do the wires you can get to(grounds and such). you could also move your box around if possible. what size wire you got going from your batt to the back? maybe do a second run or third

    throw it up isn't a great song to use in bassrace since the notes vary in the song...

    I'd use " Where is the Bud", " Cheefa Tha Reefa", or "Destruction Terror". They're all by Three 6 Mafia and most of their songs have good bass. 90% of em do.

    change the track to BME Click, off the same CD throw it up came from..

    last track.. track 21

    that'll be much better for that tuning...

    here's what the bassline sounds like.. and the result in my vehicle for bassrace..

    http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v3...t=bassrace.flv

    the 3 main bass frequencies are 43,40, and 37hz... should do great for ya

    in my vehicle it was nearly 4 db louder than throw it up.. the main frequency is too high for it to bang great for that tuning..
