    New Car Audio Competition Starting in 2012 MUSIC BASED!!

    JUST WANTED TO GET SOME INPUT FROM YOU GUYS ON HERE WHO LIKE TO COMPETE.



    For the Love of Bass.

    FLB SPL league is a new form of car audio competition that is to begin in 2012. This new format is to take all the pros and cons of all the other formats in existence today and combine them, along with new ideas to create a whole new breed of competing.

    FLB was created to bring life back into the competition scene. To spark the interests not only in new competitors who have never been to a show, but bring back the men and woman who started these leagues many years ago. The ones who have lost interest in the sport. The ones who feel that the sport has died and that no one cares what they think, believe, or even care of in this great sport.

    The reason for the name is just that. For the Love of Bass! For the ones who do it because they enjoy it, they take pride in not only their vehicle and system but each competitor they go up against. The ones that keep them on their toes and keep the challenge going. What's a competition without a challenge? What is a event without the suspense of the final outcome? Competing isn't just about winning, it's about the tiebreakers, and it's about losing too. Knowing that there is work to be done and things to improve on. Things that keep everyone doing what they Love.



    Now for the really good part.


    FLB was also created to give back. Give back to the ones who make it all happen. Without competitors there is no event to even take place. Without the competitors who put all the time and effort into their builds. FLB wants to be there for the ones who make it all happen, the ones who contribute the hours in drive time, set up, the event, tear down, and head home to start again for the very next show.


    FLB is not only going to recognize their winners in points and in certificates and awards, but in CASH, yes Real Cash. The same thing you put into your build, and into the admissions to the events and everything along the way to be a competitor.


    If you are a veteran competitor, look at all the trophies you have lined on shelves or in the garage or even shoved in boxes and put away.
    Now besides the proof of winning, what does that tall weighted plastic do for you?
    Does it buy the next battery to help power your setup?
    Does it re-cone your subwoofers when they have reached their limits?
    Do they help with fuel cost to get to the next show?

    Now if you are new to the competition scene then this goes for you too. Think of all the time and money invested in your build. Now think of how great it would be to start winning money back to recover the investment you built. And continue a long and great contribution to a great sport.



    The point to this is everyone loves to be awarded for their accomplishments and something to take pride in. But how about a award that pays you back, that keeps the ball rolling and the make you come back for more.

    FLB will be awarding the winner in every class Cash Prizes. A percentage of each competitors entry fee in the class will go towards a pot for the winner. Now the more competitors in each class, the bigger the prize amount can be. With no limits to the amount you can win.

    There will also be a skilled event at every FLB show that is not won by the one with the best and loudest system. But the one who is skilled at controlling their system the best.

    FLB will create all new classes and all new rules bases on who and what matters, The competitors. All members of FLB will have a say in rules and can all come together to add or remove a part of the events that will create a better overall outcome for the events themselves and all competitors involved. Rules and classes are decided on and voted on by any current members who would like to be involved.



    FLB will begin events in 2012

    FLB events will start in Northwest Ohio, and travel all over the state and sister states in the area. Hosting a min of 2 shows a month during the beginning of its release and continue to grow more and more. FLB would love to go national, but in time. Great things take time and great things need time to become just that.


    FLB events will be judged by official FLB certified judges. All events can be held at host locations by Teams, Shops, Organizations, Car Shows, and much more. All the above can hire an official FLB judge to put on a event in their area and become a certified show for competitors to come from all around to compete for bragging rights, certified scores and of course CASH!







    THERE IS ALOT MORE INFO ABOUT THIS NEW FORMAT. BUT BECAUSE I AM NEW TO THIS FORUM IM NOT TRYING TO COME IN HERE AND DROP LINKS TO IT ALL. YOU CAN POST A QUESTION HERE OR PM ME.

    THANKS

    Each Competitor will have 2 runs to get their best score. Duriing the event you may come up to the lanes and play your 30 sec run. once your score has been recorded you may wait to see if any other competitor breaks your score. if your score is beaten in your class you can use your second run to increase your score.

    Additional runs after your given 2 may be done for only $5 re-run charge.
    Additional runs are limited to 3 after your first orig 2.
    Additional runs must be completed before Eliminations begin.


    FOR EACH CLASS THE TOP 3 SCORING COMPETITORS WILL GO ON TO ELIMINATIONS TO PLACE 1-3 AND AWARD THE 1ST PLACE WINNER WITH CASH.

    2nd & 3rd place will receive printed certificates

    All competitors who compete at each FLB event will recieve FLBspl Dash Plaques for thier entry.

    -All interior pannels must be in place

    -There will be a limit of 3000 rms in this class.

    or

    truck, van, suv

    -no fuses required

    NO WALL HIEGHT IS BASED ON A 60% HEIGHT REQUIREMENT

    - for cars and hatchbacks the height will be measured from your trunk floor level to the height of your ceiling

    -suv's will be measured from the cargo area floor lever to the height your ceiling

    -trucks and vans will be measured from the main floor of the truck or van that the seats are bolted too, to the ceiling height.

    IN ANY CASE IT WILL ALSO BE BASED ON WINDOW LINE ALSO. IT WILL BE 60% OF HEIGHT OR WINDOW LINE, WHICH EVER IS GREATER.



    limited to 5 batteries total. 1 in stock location and 4 anywhere else inside the vehicle.

    *the reason for the limit is it can limit power. if you feel your setup needs more batteries to handle your power you will move to Heavy Hitters

    (see heavy hitters class for no limit on batteries)



    Wall type Class: 3 classes



    THIS CLASS IS FOR ALL ENCLOSURES AND SETUPS ABOVE THE WINDOW LINE BUT BEHIND THE B-PILLAR

    -All interior pannels must be in place (in front of the B-Pillar)

    -There is no limit on power

    -No fuses required

    -limited to 5 batteries total. 1 in stock location and 4 anywhere else inside the vehicle.

    *the reason for the limit is it can limit power. if you feel your setup needs more batteries to handle your power you will move to Heavy Hitters

    (see heavy hitters class for no limit on batteries)



    These classes will be divided by Cone Area.



    CLASS 1: UNDER 550" OF CONE AREA

    up to 13 -12" subwoofers
    up to 8 -15" subwoofers
    up to 5 -18" subwoofers
    up to 4 -21" subwoofer
    ANY OTHER AMOUNT MORE THEN THIS WILL CLASS YOU IN HEAVY HITTERS.


    HEAVY HITTERS Class: 3 classes

    (These classes are for the big boys, classes for those with heavy hitting sytems)

    -no limit on subs

    -no limit on power

    -no limit on batteries



    Heavy Hitters 1:

    slight interior mods

    door panels may be molded and properly used.

    no other mods in front of the B-Pillar



    Heavy Hitters 2:

    roof can be braced with metal

    roof may be rhino lined

    roof can be sheathed with up to 1" thick of wood material on interior

    doors can be internally braced- to stop door cracks



    Heavy Hitters 3:

    ANYTHING GOES! (same as extreme classes)




    BASS LIMBO

    How LOW can you go???



    This would be something extra at the event like port wars.

    3 scores will be recorded then averaged to give your final score to see how loud you are at a range of frequencies.

    you will play 3 tones to see how good your setup plays them.

    40hz, 30hz, and 20hz.

    there will be guys who get a great score at 20hz and not at 40hz and the other way around for other guys. so anyone could have the best average score.
