    Achieving Spl Numbers with what you have.

    I figure, since most threads are about one product over another product, why not enlighten the "newer" members seaking SPL with ways to achieve what their looking for with what is possible, cost efficient, and overall music friendly. First off im sure that many people new to the forum or not so new to the forum would like to take into consideration a list of variations, parameters, options if you will when attempting to design their vehicles system. Simple knowledgeable facts that may be overlooked if not directly stated, such as: Doubling wattage to the sub, in theory has a 3db increase. Higher ported box tuning, potentially higher output.

    I figure why dont we all throw down points for the spl seekers to take into consideration when designing their system.

    Tim



    Current System:
    -18" MA Audio Hard Kore
    -12 CU.FT @ 24hz
    -2 Planet Audio TT2250D's
    -Planet Audio TT4400
    -Pioneer 8600

    Moving the box around and seeing what is right for you and what hits good numbers on the mic? I know alot of people ask this question which way should it be facing.... etc

    Re: Achieving Spl Numbers with what you have.

    Hahah what an awesome thread, thanks buddy... me a newbie to this forum anyways, so yeah, first of all people probably need to find out a few things for them selves to see which sounds better, etc...and then when they get setup sorted, then find out be told ways to increase noise..., well this is probably the stage i am at, but am looking at upgrading subs before entering comps,... but in response to the moving box around to best suit performance, i've heard taht backwards (subs facing toward rear) facing is better in most cases, and i'd say would gain more SQL that way, but yeah i think people just have to do some trial and error, because every car is diffent...

    but yes please give some ways of improving performance SPL wise,....?>. :veryhappy

    a competitive person never tells his secrets. If so, a comp wouldnt be a comp because everyone would have the same equipment and techniques as you. But for those of you who want to share, im not the one to stop. But i'll be taking notes.

    Re: Achieving Spl Numbers with what you have.

    Heres a good place to start for some:

    Having bass settings(H/U), and or gains(Amp) turned all the way up doesn't work for everyone. In fact some people don't utilize the bass settings on their H/U(output varies).

    Adjust front seats about 3/4 of the way forward. (varies depending on mic placement)

    * Results will vary *

    Play with different boxes.....

    Make sure your box has NO flex, in other words bracing and resin would work. I did a thread on this about a month or 2 ago so just search...

    Only a few have the big secrets. Everything else is just a starting point. Just like ideas given so far in this thread. All are good starting points.

    I've been given a few by a few trustworthy people, and if I told anyone else my system would die a horrible death. :thumbsup
