    Thinking on building an SPL system

    I figure since this group here is mostly SPL supporters rather than Sound Q, I would be able to get a few responses.

    I am contemplating on designing an SPL competition vehicle that will also need to be somewhat musical too. It will be used as a way to promote the sport as well as a way to reach troubled teens.

    I want to use a mid '60s bug for the car. I know the electrical system will need to be upgraded, the engine probably modified to accept the larger alternator(s) and other things, but I believe it can be done. I would like to do 6-8 subs, no bigger than 12s, mainly for airspace constrictions.

    I want excellent amps...I only expect excellence in my equipment, install can have flaws, but equipment must remain perfect. I know that in competition somethings happen like burned out amps, blown subs and whatnot, but that will be taken care of with on extra sub, one extra amp.

    I know i have hit on some of the concerns some of you guys would have, but I am hoping for some positive feedback. My installer wants me to do a burp machine, but that takes all the musicality that the system can offer.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Joe

    Your best bet would be to go to termpro and explain everything there.

    Re: Thinking on building an SPL system

    if you plan on paying someone else to do the install, thats a good estimate for the $ of it...

    if you are doing it yourself, you dont need to even come close to 15k to get LOUD on music!!!

    i'd say type R's...

    but it might get this thread put into the type R pile...

    Of course, SX > type R no matter what my tests say

    As far as 4 12's, I'd say thats a good call.

    OnYrMrk if you'd like more details and UN BIASED test results of various equipment... PM me

    Re: Thinking on building an SPL system

    we have more decided that taking it to just spl contest might be a waste of a custom car, so we have toyed with the idea of doing 10 8's in sealed enclosures. Probably some fiberglass to tie it all in. I know that ported is the better way to get LOUD, but sealed and I can get musical too.

    and you can get VERY musical ported - you just have to know how to make it all come together
