so i went to my first competition today. it was a meca competition in Marion Indiana. i had a good time there besides it got fckin COLD by the end of the night. Myself and a couple guys from Soundcheck road with me there to check it out. there was about 30 cars total there. not a huge turn out. all 30 cars didnt compete though. i had 4 cars in my class. street 4 because i didnt feel like changing out my fuse to a 60 amp to compete in street 3 but it actually turned out better for me to do street 4 cuz there were 4 cars so it pays a 20 dollar cash payout if u win.
and when i first got there everybody was lookin at my stuff and didnt think much of it cuz it was only a single 18 with an mtx amp. well i surely got the WOW factor after i burped it. people couldnt believe that it was hittin that high with a box tuned to 36hz.
im still running the same setup i was running before. just upped the gain a hair on the amp. and position the box and seats to make it the loudest in the kick as possible. didnt have but like 10 minutes to test so i couldnt figure out exactly the loudest way but the way i did it helped alot.
(1) 18" Treo SSX
(1) MTX 1501d
(2) Kinetik hc2400's
well i dont have all the scores just mine.
i got the PHAT Truck award
and the Loudest 18 award
in SPL i got 1st with a 148.0 db. i dunno bout u but thats awesome for what i have haha. it was very suprising. in my test runs i was doin a 148.5 but when i was metered i only got a 148.0
in Reality SPL which is where they put the meter at the headrest of the drivers seat and u play a song and u see how high u hit. i hit a 143.0db at the headrest playin a bass mechaniks track. wasnt the right frequency for me so i didnt do as well as i could have. oh and yah i placed first in my class in reality SPL also
ok last i did drive by. which i completely fcked up on BUT i still had the loudest drive by score there. my deck skipped for like 20 sec in a row so i couldnt meter ****. and at the start like the first 3 sec of the song was nothing so it didnt register anything. but i did get a good 7-10 sec of actual bass and i did a 122.8 30 sec average about 6ft away from the meter. unfortunetly if my deck wasnt skipping non stop i woulda averaged upwards of a 128. i was of course playin Lil Jon - Throw it up
i was definetly the WOW factor in the show.
