First off the comparison between the two
as some of you know i used to have a pair of RE MT's in the car.....
I was talking with the guys at DC Soundlab and after some thought i switched out the subs in the neon. I knew that these would be better after learning about the specs, and exactly what they were built for, i figured id gain a little.
but not this much
ran bassrace twice. and bassboxing once. i normally compete in the 40-49.9 class, and with the MT's, i never went over 149.9
with these i jumped out at 151.4 DB and finished off at 151.0 DB
i ran again because theres no way i'd have run that class....so i ran again, and ran my 149.9
Bassboxing was a whole different story
I with the MT's the most ive ever started and finished at 152.2 DB over a 60 second run.
I ran today with the Level 5's and i jumped out at a 154.4 and it tailed off to a 153.5
i never burped the MT's, and i dont plan to Burp these....but the results are in.
same power, same box, and these are MUCH much louder.
not to mention, that all of this today was done with a winshield that looked like this
Cliffs: - I upgraded to level 5's from MT's, and gained 1 DB on music, for 30 seconds, in bassrace.(sealed up on the dash)
but in bassboxing (door open on the dash) i gained from 1.3DB to 2.2DB on music for 60 seconds and did it all with a winshield that is pretty much laying on the dashboard.
