    mikebik do you build your own boxes or have some one do it? spl is all about testing so if you can build your own its gonna save a lot. finding some one with a meter that lives close by would be good to.

    Very nice. Dans crx was 150.7 I believe at 1868 watts rms. we did get a 151.3 out of it tho in testing. He just didn't want to go over the 2000 rms mark at finals

    no i do not have the time to build them.i do know that it would be a lot cheaper if i did. i would love to build a fiberglass box but i don't have the time to.

    I think the lesson here is that to do this you pretty much need an SPL friendly vehicle (or a really good wall) AND you'll be winning dB Drag world finals if you can pull it off.

    Also I have a sneaky suspicion that that number comes at the expense of any bandwidth outside of the one peak frequency. I'll further wager than OP thinks he's going to have a daily driver that he can roll up to the lanes and see those numbers.


    OP. Let me repeat. DO NOT spend any more money on this until you go to some shows and actually see what loud is like.
