    Its not as loud as it should be, you stop hearing it about a block away. you should be able to hear it a quarter mile away.

    Re: Subs are not hitting hard enough.

    Being able to hear it from a certain distance has nothing to do with being loud.

    Re: Subs are not hitting hard enough.

    hahahhahahah.... a qrt mile away huh... the best i've ever had has been 3 blocks away... If you was right next to me at a red light or in a parking lot an I had it full tilt you would just hear very little bass and very little of the mids/highs until i roll the window down...

    That sounds like a reliable statistic.

    A walmart sub could be as well.

    However, that tells us nothing about anything. As mentioned distance one can hear a system has nothing to do with how "loud" it actually is.

    It is also a very stupid thing to be worried about as people who build system to annoy other people are very people who make this whole industry look very very bad.

    Can someone explain how distance does NOT equal loudness?

    I would first upgrade your electrical. Then work on your box.

    Also flex is not everything to car audio....

    The actual better question can please explain how it does? Have you actually been around cars that are actually "loud"?

    I don't mean...man I can hear that car a mile away it is loud.... As that standard of loud is not a standard at all, but a way of thinking rather.

    Re: Subs are not hitting hard enough.

    Actually I should alter my post..

    The real question should be.... Why do you want to annoy so many people and cause yourself so much grief?

    Yep. Forget the Termlab, lose the RTA, just get a group of poorly educated 16yo kids to tell you where you stand with ur system...

    Re: Subs are not hitting hard enough.

    He'll end up with a noise violation ticket, maybe that'll prove that he's loud enough. With my SDS tiles, music can be on pretty loud but outside it doesn't sound so bad. Minus the plastic spare tire well.. :/
