    What are some common scores for amatuer class?

    I am going to compete in an upcoming MECA show for the first time and i was wondering what to expect. I am running a 18 AA havoc and a SAZ3000d, or a 9515 and the 3000d, depends on if i want to build a box for the 15

    SPL
    I would be in AS1 or AS2 class im sure.

    What do most people run in these classes? (junk? or some decent stuff)

    Any input, advice or tips would be great!

    Thanks,
    William

    It really depends there are new pressure class formulas this year so scores should be down from last year. Last year scores were really loud in AS classes compared to years before.

    it depends. prolly low 140's at the beginning of the year. last years scores were high cause we were using little 5 amp fuses that could handle more than 5 amps of current. that's how Ben burped a 151.0 at world finals with like 30 amps of fusing and Austin and Ryan were able to set new records for AS 2 and AS 3. I dont know who's all in AS1 this year but that's why MECA has a limit on how many fuses we can have now. Cause we were all using 10 or 15 5 amp fuses. our fuse blocks were almost 2 feet long lol but you dont have to worry cause they all moved up to Street classes now . . . except unless your competing in AS3.

    Re: What are some common scores for amatuer class?

    i did a 141.9 last year in as1 with crappy equipment. i HIGHLY doubt u will get a good burp in as1 with an 18, u can run like 25 amps of fusing and with a 15 like 35 or sum gay **** like that, and only 1 fuse. its retarded

    There is no longer a 0-750 class.
    The new pressure classes for 2009 are:

    AS1 0-550 with 1 fuse
    AS2 551-1000 with 2 fuses
    AS3 1001-2000 with 3 fuses

    We did low 148's in AS1 and AS2 last year. I don't see that happening this year.

    Sad thing is, those score could have been higher
