    Re: Your db Numbers!

    Years ago I remember audio shops giving guys bogus numbers to make their heads swell thinking they had a stronger system than they really had. same guys would show up for competitions and score no where near as high...


    the BS factor could possibly not be on his end

    Im calling bs based on what you posted.

    The current WORLD RECORD in SS no wall is a 161.1 and that is a finish dude too. The loudest American in no wall is William Collier with a 159.9.

    You mean you were on the AC or old TL or were metering outlaw....

    1 volt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)]

    1 watt = 1 joule / second
    1 watt = (1 Newton)(meter) / second
    1 watt = [1 kg/(second^2)] (meter) / second

    simplifying we find:

    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter)] / (second ^3)


    therefore:

    P = (I)(V)

    1 watt = (1 volt)(1ampere)
    1 watt = ( [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)] )(1 ampere)
    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / (second^3)


    And that is WHY Power is in the SI units of Watts. enjoy!

    No, but I can tell you that the meter he was on, I'd probably be in the high 160s to low 170s if that tells you anything about it's accuracy.

    All in one day.

    On sat am I was the first to run hitting a 153.6 on the New AC, in disbelief I jumped on my TL and did a 150.9, so the AC was being a ***** again. (go figure) I then drove 2hrs to gainesville to compete at a local show. Did the 155.8 on the classic TL and was loudest of show. Came back to slamfest on sunday to pick up my 1st place trophy - I won by over 9dB!
