    Yea hatches really provide a lot of SPL. Gonna need sound deadening in it though. Mine rattles like a *****.

    CRXs are excelent spl cars, as well as other small hatchback vehicles.

    suburban would be the best for space issues as well as giving the sound waves some time to form, (lots of space)

    downsides would include the mic being pretty far away and thae fact that it isn't a hatch design

    its tough because if your going for an all out serious SPL vehcile, the larger the better(with in limits though) so if you want huge numbers you would use a full size vehicle like the ones you listed because the fact that you can produce a larger box inside of it

    It's all about those ugly little Fiat Pandas if anyone knows what I am talking about...



    Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum -- Vegetius

    "I told her about my conversation three years ago with the political leader of Islamic Jihad in Gaza. "What's the difference between suicide, which the Koran condemns, and martyrdom?" I asked. "Suicide," he replied, "is done out of despair. But remember: most of our martyrs today were very successful in their earthly lives." In short, there was a future to live for--and they detonated it anyway."

    yea maybe just a little. but think about it u'd get even lower db's if u didn't have a monster box. so its worth it. like burtonsnow83 said more waves can form.

    Are you talking about a car for street? If so, a crx or escort exp would be your best bet.

    I would love to trade up for an Excusrion and run in SS9+


    but then again, Nathum Munson who is one of the best in the world has been using that 1978 little honda Civic, he is currently running 2 Solox's I think
