    The Funniest bass comp you've ever been to??

    Hey everyone.

    I was readin a post about some Eclipse Titaniums, and it reminded me of last year's bass comp at the local shop. It was quite ammusing to say the least. To start off with, we had a guy there who was driving an older style BMW with 3 L7's in the back and 1 RF Punch 1000<i believe> pushing all three. He came up to the DB meter and hit a 138 on the dash. I felt so bad for the guy considering how many people was laughing at him. I mean hell, even I beat him with my two Kappa Perfect 12.1's. That started the day off right. Then we had a guy come through the line with an old, ragidy ***, beat up plumbing truck...but his setup was sick as hell. He had built a wall in the back of the van, and in that wall...he had the ultimate setup thus far in the day...3 15" Eclipse Titaniums and 4 12" of the same thing. It was a monstrocity of wires/batteries and i swear that if the Fire Marshall was to have seen that, he would've condemed the van for security purposes. I couldn't leave my head in there for long, it was too **** loud. He only hit a 150.6. We all was at a shock when the last "sick setup for the day" came through. An orange eclipse with 2 W7 13's.....and took the trophy with 151.8.....i have never seen a more unorthadox match-up of systems in my life....can any of you guys relate to this laughing stock of a day? Or is my city the only place where it seems the more crappy of a car you have, the more crap you try to fit into it? What's the funniest bass comp you've seen?


    Thanks for readin,
    Luzah

    I was at a small SLAP show were some guys (a family I think) pulled up in a 79 Suburban with all Dallas Cowboys stuff on it.. The star on the hood. and a Beautifull mural (spelling) on the back of Emmit running away from the Packers...

    HOWEVER he had a wall of 4 18"Subs.. and door panels of like 4 sets of 6x9 audiobahns. one word for the entire set-up GHETTO..

    but he did do like 151 or so..

    My comp was pretty bad, I have a B12 with a 81000d on it, and only hit 138. I havent been to many shows but I was disapointed, I didnt even compete actually.

    Re: The Funniest bass comp you've ever been to??

    sigh, atleast you have fun shows, any non official show in holland is crap before it starts.

    last of those shows I went I lost bigtime because everything I had was aimed for stock II class based on iasca rules however they felt that it would be easier just to let anyone compete in just one class.

    Scores? Lowest was somewhere around 131 orso and the loudest was at 171.8

    whats the use in competing when there´s a guy standing next to you with 12000 wrms to send to his 8 subs while you are the good bay with only 2 subs at a lower rms... the most disturbing part is that you get metered at 147.8 and people laugh the **** of you due to the high difference of scores. What they dont know is that my rms was like 1/20´t of the guy that was at 154.1 db

    sick disturbing and not funny, sorta like a female

    yea at my comp i think they had the mic turned up quite a bit so all the scores aren't really that accurate. i hit 146.2 with 380 watts. but i didn't know till the day of the comp that i could run 1000 watts and still be in the same class. so i lost by .6 decibels to a guy running a 1000 watts. next year i'm not going down so easy.

    i agree with u though neonak that u can't have a contest unless u have different classes.
