    200 bucks for entertainment is def a lot of $$...I beg to differ on that. This is totally irrelevant to the OP's experiment...but if wants to waste it away, then let him. At least afterwords, he can resell if he chooses, and recoup some of that $. Can't do that at a baseball game.

    I beg to differ about the baseball game lol.

    Decent seats are at least $40 each then there is food and beer, I spent $19 for a hot dog, nachos and a drink at a Tigers game recently. Then $10 for a bottle of beer. Without a flask or any sort of pregaming you can easily push $100 per person to go to a ballgame, eat and catch a light buzz.

    I've been to a few but I don't watch sports nor am I into it but I know it can be expensive. Even season tickets. So whoever tells me entertainment is cheap and not expensive is full of ****. Even the movie theatre here is dam near 12 bucks a person. Family of 4 can add up real quick.

    Re: Boss Audio Box Ideas

    Seems like good idea, I haven't looked at boss subs lately.
    A lot of anything with some xmax would have to get loud.

    And a low power amp should work, build the right box and take to spl contest.
    I'm not sure if they go by speaker cone area or rms wattage.........but someone will end up butt hurt for sure.

    Ton of ofc 2/0 and fuse blocks.
    Soundqubed hdc4 12's
    Soundqubed 7k with gp dual inputs.
    Soundqubed 6.5's two sets

    Not sure on mids and highs amp yet.

    I started out with a budget build... (more or less)... then it got somewhat involved... lol... $1700 bux later I finally got what it was meant to be from the beginning... but this using super cheap equipment looks like it'll be fun... a low power build... (1000-1500 watts)... with lots of cheap subs... maybe I'll do mine like this next time

    Re: Boss Audio Box Ideas

    Back in 2002 my brother did something like this.
    His car was eagle talon, he went to Walmart and bought 4 jenson subs for like $50 each, put in a sealed box facing rear glass and hit 149's every meet they had at a local car audio place. (Old school mean machine on bass)

    He should have been in the low watt class but it only had 2 people with 1-10 each.
    He jumped in the class that had the most people in it and constantly hit 149's

    Everyone else in that class had spent way more money and closest that came to him was 147.
    Lots of peeps were butt hurt. He did break into 150 decibels at the end of contest. And blew away everyone on the point system for the multiple contest dates added up.

    They may have still been using a audiocontrol meter, instead of a termlab in 2002. Those old AC meters where known to be a bit more ‘generous’ than a TL. Especially if the air temperature was high.

    True. Today's standards would prob be around the 140 ish mark.
