1why do you get your stuff metered?

2what does these numbers mean to you?

3does high numbers mean that you have a no sq system?

4does high numbers mean that your more inclined to having hearing loss sooner than others

5does low numbers mean that you're an sq freak

6does low numbers mean that you need to upgrade

7if you don't care about numbers - then what?

8do you think about number or consider them when building a box or choosing a sub?

i ask these questions b/c i don't care about db numbers and i'm trying to find out (9)what's the point of getting your stuff metered? (10) i could understand if you wanted to try and break the "record" in the class you're in, but for what other reason?

eh i hit a 148........ so wtf does that got to do w/anything, you get to say you hit a number on a mic - guess that means u're the shyt or something???

(11)explain it to me guys i'm not tryin to start anything, but i am trying to understand where you all are coming from

 
1. i would get my stuff metered to see how loud it is.

2. they mean how loud it is and if they are good then it shows that the effort paid off.

3. no not necasaraly

4. no,you may not play your system at its potential daily.

5. no you could have a cheap install and have a system that doesnt sound good.

6. no if you are happy with your system then its okay,personal prefrence.

7. if you dont care about numbers then they pretty much dont matter to that person.

8. not really but if somone was building a car ment for comp then i can see where this would come to play.

idk if this will help any but thats just my thoughts on the q's you asked.

may i sudgest you edit yours and add numbers infront of each q?

jus to simplify things.

 
why do you get your stuff metered?
To see how well I designed my system for SPL purposes

does high numbers mean that you have a no sq system?
Not necessarily, many subs like the XXX or D2 will yeild high numbers while still having superb SQ. Also, some people use port plugs etc. to get good SQ when not metering.

does high numbers mean that your more inclined to having hearing loss sooner than others
Again, not necessarily, if you use a plug for daily or don't listen to it loud for daily, you will be fine.

does low numbers mean that you're an sq freak
personal opinion

does low numbers mean that you need to upgrade?
As long as you're satisfied, you don't need to upgrade

if you don't care about numbers - then what?
not a rational question

do you think about number or consider them when building a box or choosing a sub?
If you want high numbers, there are several factors to consider when box building, tuning freq, size, ported/sealed, etc

Im just curious i suppose. Main reason I do it is to see how I can improve my install skills. One measurement doesnt tell me anything. I need multiple measurements to see if new install tactics have worked or not.

 
i havent measured mine but i might this weekend, im doing it for bragging rights with my friends because they think there systems are the loudest **** ever hitting 120db's its so dam funny
