    Re: 1st competition

    My sub was smoking after 3 tries of 30 seconds each... I shouldn't have listened to the guys "don't worry it won't hurt that sub" - it smelled like burning smoke for 10 minutes after. I let it cool the ride back home and it seems to be doing fine again. I had a lot of fun, everyone was WAY impressed with the 18" SX... people were around my car for the 4 hours before I got metered.

    1st run: 140.1
    2nd run: 139.8
    3rd run: 139.9

    My goal when going to the comp was to hit 140... and I did, so I'm happy. I hope to purchase a TermLab soon and make my money back metering local people. Then deadening my entire car, then somehow cutting the metal wall behind my back seats that doesn't allow the 18's full punch to get inside the car.

    Re: 1st competition

    I hit a 140.0 with my daily box and stock alt. with my 12" SX. I still have a lot of room to improve on. As do you to, not to bad for a first time, I guess.

    Human cloning is outlawed because if Chuck Norris were cloned, then it would be possible for a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick to meet another chuck Norris roundhouse kick. Physicists theorize that this contact would end the universe.

    Re: 1st competition

    Yeah, pretty much a 30 second burp

    My box is tuned to 30hz and there is a thick piece of metal in between my trunk where my box is and my back seat.

    Next comp: Hole in that piece of metal, moving the amp rack that's also behind that piece of metal somewhere else and maybe tuning the box around 40hz?

    Also, I still use my stock alternator and stock wiring... that will be changed soon too. If I had a way of cutting the metal at the competition I KNOW I could've hit AT LEAST 145.

    Oh believe me, my results at the next comp will blow you away. Only reason I didn't do anything drastic before today was because I wanted to see if I liked doing the competition... which I LOVED.

    I know this is gonna sound stupid but what is a "burp".
    What is the difference between a sweep and a sine sweep?

    Re: 1st competition

    Just got my MT installed today and waiting on the batteries to charge up.
    Stupid me left the dome light and drained my yellows.

    So long story short she is going on the Tl this friday.
    Hoping for mid 40's. 42-44 I will be happy.

    So us virgins could use all the advice you vets can give.

    This is an old thread, but I'm putting the BTL on the same meter at a show run by the same people on Sunday.

    What I learned from the last comp:
    - Bring tons of drinks in a cooler
    - Bring portable fans
    - I'm going to play music at the next show probably, I wish I could find someone local to tell me my peak frequency, so I could find a song to play for 30 seconds....
