    My First Comp (And Win)

    Just went to and won my first competition at Toys for Tots show in Maryville.
    The only thing I was upset about was no one was in my class...
    But I did beat myself.
    My first run was a 136.1 with my sub at 2 ohm. Rewired it to .5 ohm before the reruns and hit a 138.2. Would've had it wired to .5 ohm already but my amp isn't supposed to handle it (only rated at 2 ohm). I've had it at .9 ohm for daily driving and it worked fine. Plus if it fried, I already need to upgrade amps anyway. Wanting a MA Audio HK4000D...

    The one thing I'm extremely proud of is hitting a 135 at 26 Hz with one 10. My friends that I went with were running 12s and 15s that couldn't even play that low...
    Can't wait til the next comp! Hopefully by then I'll have a HK4000D and be putting up bigger numbers... I'm hooked!

    You did 135 @ 26Hz? What do you have the box tuned to

    Good lord, that's a lot of output...

    Also, I bet your actual impedance as seen by the amp is nowhere near what you think it is

    Scottie's got one for sale.



    Caraudio.com - Where the average member couldn't wire a SPST toggle if they had to.


    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    I'm frankly amazed you didn't blow the driver to smithereens

    135dB is a ton of output below tuning...
