    GREAT 15" Challenge *RESULTS*....graphs, scores, clamped, sexytime

    DISCLAIMER: This test was performed in MY vehicle, and too MY specs i needed. They are not FACTs as which sub is the loudest, just what was loudest in my vehicle and tests. If you have issue with how a sub performed, by all means retest it for yourself. I purchased all the subs myself so no sub was given an advantage over another

    All subs performed amazingly in my eyes.....some more than others, but all were up there in scores given their power levels and RMS ratings.....none were hurt or blown after tests.....they all are still working order.


    So here we go.


    POWER and SCORE graph:




    Notes: TSS actually did a 154.9 @ 48hz with 4410w
    All tests were done around same temperature: 70-80'


    WATTs to SCORE ratio:




    LET the FLAMING BEGIN





    Ill start doing giveaway this week....still figuring out how i wanna do it
