    Looking to enter into a competition.

    Hello guys,
    Whats up not much here, well im thinking about entering a Db competition here locally, i will be using a box tuned to 32 hz, with about 3 sumthing cubic feet of air space. Sadly enough ill only be using a bx1500d, im wondering what would make me pull some pretty high numbers that arent rediculously expensive, and what type of head unit that isnt that expensive can i buy that will give me great sound quality, everyone out here is using jl7s and shi* like that..i would love to show them up with just my setup but im still unsure of what i can use to pull some rank...ya know?
    i have 2 12" hx2s, and ive had numerous peple tell me ill do around 145db with a old term lab but im scared that might not cut it ya know? i wanna beat them with something thats not really used, i got a freind whos gonna use one 12" mtx 9500 sub with a mtx1501d amp and swears on his grave hes gonna hit harder then me but i dont know ive never heard them, but when i said what is your box tuned to he didnt have a clue. So i was like ok...but i dont know what to use, does anyone know a setup with my box configuration and maybe my amp power that will give me something recognitionable..id love any help, suggestions ideas anything fellas, im looking for all around help. Id be willing to sell my stuff to get better you know but then i have to think about my bills im just trying to keep it in afordable range for me, and i wont know what that is till i lok at the cost of what stuff would be ya know?
    let me know anyone and everyone all support is greatly appreciated!
    thanks again!
    Mike

    hit me up on aim later tonight around 12:45 tonight if you wanna do one on one talking cause i mean antything is apprecaite fellas, and ladies if there is some with advice
    thanks for everyones help and advice!

    Re: Looking to enter into a competition.

    i just found a deal on these refurbed visonik amps
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...95703&tc=photo

    not much more than the bx1500d, but does almost twice the power, but you gotta remember that those hx2's i hooked you up with are only 500 watts RMS, and you might toast them, even with that 1500d, and thsoe really arent going to cut it for a comp, they get **** loud, but not that loud. i would say a grip of those 10's installed right might get you somewhere..you could run eight of em off that amp too!!!, but that thing will be quite a drain on your electrical system, and its 29 inches long!! but you could get eight of those subs for like 340, and the amp for 159, thats not a bad deal for that much insanity











    but there is no way youd fit eight of those in your escort...sorry, twas fun to think about though but 8 tens in an escort would be sick if you could swing it

    Re: Looking to enter into a competition.

    its not about getting a ton of power.. more power to your setup won't give you a very large gain... a very good box will.

    one tip - tuning that low won't put up a great number.. and 1.5 per sub probably isn't large enough.

    lots goes into enclosure design - what sounds loud doesnt always meter loud.

    Re: Looking to enter into a competition.

    To be completely honest,

    You have no chance. Those hx2s wont hit nearly as hard as the systems there.

    Re: Looking to enter into a competition.

    heres my question...
    do you need anything besides a system to compete?
    any special equipment...
    right now i have an orion h2 15 running 1800 watts to it in 3ft^3 tuned to 31hz...
    i know i need a higher tuned box for competition... but other than that... anything?



    as for your question...
    those hx2s can't compete with w7

    check out orion.

    hccafan on here knows alot about orion equip.
    but even that competing with a w7 is shifty

    Re: Looking to enter into a competition.

    Going to a comp no matter what you do will be good for you. Learn from the hard hitters! Do not ever go expecting to win or blow anyone away or anything, just go to bs and have a good time. #1 rule when going to a competition is LISTEN TO VETERANS, do not try to show what you know or anything... like I said just ask allot of questions and respect everyone even the dorks and you will go along ways.



    www.garage1217.com is a good place to get raw leds & parts for custom vehicle lighting!

    Not many competitions offer cash prizes. If they do, they usually don't offer trophies and give out some of the money taken in from registrations instead.
