    Yes.. it surely seemed to be "water off a ducks back" judging by your past response! What is it that bothers you then? The "test" was throwing a bunch of woofers into a couple of prefab-ish boxes, and going at it.. gee.. how accurate well, a+ for effort, i guess Also.. I have yet to recieve an answer about the Aura's build quality...

    We haven't received an answer either. Obviously something go right, but the glue joints and quality of how it was put together was the best out of the group, hands down. The 15" version I had for 2 years performed great, and I pounded on it regularly...so who knows about the 12".

It was only after we posted the information did we see that people focused on only a few numbers and looked over the rest of the information. We had a SQ and an SPL portion, but again only a few SPL numbers were looked at. That, and our testing was completely wrong and full of faults (apparently). And with that kind of response from the test results, who would want to do another one just to be poked at after it was done?

    Everyone got to see what the drivers could really do and the challenge and it was great for everyone that attended. I didn't know Chad was out that much on food though. I think small meets might be where it's at from now on. Like Chad said, we did the 8" and 12" meet with great results but the results weren't appreciated as well as everyone was hoping. I don't think Chad will do another meet and I know that I'm not going to host one (for numerous reasons - bias due to the obvious, errors, etc). Too bad really.


    food was the least of the expenses, i just wish i could find half the tools that were lost during the test.

    Prefabish ? So chad , loyd , Jim and I build prefabish enclosures ? What bothers me is you saying that volunteered time from several people and a few company owners was worthless.

    Prefabish- a generic box, not made specifically for one woofer. so, yes as for the time- yes, it was a worthless test. take that for what it is worth.

    Well, I for one would be open to hosting such a thing. After attending my first SPL challenge (hosting, not participating) I was intrigued by all the different setups I saw/witnessed - e.g. an $8 second-had sub doing a 14x.x; a box put together in less than an hour coming in the top 2, etc.

    There is of course, the bias factor - one which can and would be easily overcome since others would be there to keep things on the level. There will of course, need to be some experienced folks who are willing to take the time out to doing such a thing.

    Also, being in Winnipeg, I'm not exactly located in the center of the car audio world either....



    I'm right. I'm always right. Even when I'm wrong, I'm right.
