    Metering Day and Install Lesson..

    Well my TermLab USB showed up today, after about 4 hours of getting **** windows XP on my computer I got it working.. O man is it fun..

    Anway, I pull my car up with my single 7", 4 cubes, 49hz.. Its being sent 160 watts right now, I play a song to see what it is, then i got to the tones.. Play a couple sweeps and then just sines.. Highest score - 131.4.. So we move on to our "Stock Division" lol, pulled up all my friends cars and metered their stock sound system, got like 115 dbs' , highest score was about 118 db's i think..

    So then my friend has his car pull up with 2 12" Kenwood dB+'s and a 1200 watt amp.. "GO!" He basically does what I did, some sweeps at full output, then some tones.. were all watching the screen, 130.4>130.8>131.0> 132.1 being as high as he could hit and the Ending score, "SH*T he beat me.." That was in a dual chamber plywood .75 cu ft per chamber sealed box.. So then we take my 7" out, make a baffle for a single 12" and throw one of the dB+'s in my 4 cube 49 hz box.. Once again, only 160 watts off my component amp.. After screwing with the box placement a little we manage to hit a 133.1 with the 49hz sine wave! So we made the brackets on the Termrpo software and i came out second place overall..

    Lesson - 1 7" sub CAN beat ur 2 12" 1200 watt setup.. dont be cocky, lol.. But really, shows install is everything, in this case more specifically the box.. We cut the power by 1/6, and had 1 less sub, and hit a higher score..

    For sure we will be having another mini competition tommarow, and were determined to ge that baby up to a 134 without more wattage .

    INSTALL

    (now loyd and dustin aint the only ones with secrets.. hehe)

    Mwahaha... All i can say is "LOUD"

    Feel free to stop by my place and let me play around with it

    USB is great, very easy, and if u call dbdrag, great customer service and u actually talk to the guy that created the whole system, "umm its saying error 506b21" "o, ok well go to my comuter, installlog.dll, right click, install" BOOM, works..

    Gotta get back to finishing up the tricks to hit that 134 db tommarow...
