I really wished it was easier to find people that wanted to have fun with audio too. It would make a huge difference in the audio sales sector. People would be buying a lot more audio equipment if there were more places to meet people and hang out and show off their hard work. I commend you on your efforts, but it won't be a cakewalk, for sure. I think the lack of representation in the Northeast could use more people like you trying to organize groups of people to help encourage a trade in an honest living, vehicle maintenance and customization. Sacsking916 has been going to shows for years and is very familiar with the in-s and out-s of organizing groups of people for shows. Hint though, Beer=fights.

I'll meet up with you and use my meter at some point on one condition - you admit you love to compete and since you have talked the talk lets walk the walk //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/cool.gif.3bcaf8f141236c00f8044d07150e34f7.gif I have an inverter and fully portable TL setup, we will get together. I promise I dont bite :-x

150 isnt bad at all. i do a 146.?? sealed up on music. i compete bassrace so i compete on music sealed up for 30 second runs. i am trying to be over a 50 here within the next few months. in 2012 i will be in the same page as you guys. i'll be competing much more in different classes/orgs. i just have a quick question and take it for what its worth. you say you're serious about you're numbers, but earlier in the thread i thought i remembered you saying numbers didnt mean much to you
To me numbers mean nothing... Concidering most of the time Tuning and Vehicle type play the biggest part a CRX with a 12" off 1000rms will do the same as a Tahoe with 4 12's of 4000rms I guess in a sense it means something but not really unless you're pulling 160's @ 30hz lol. Other than that I just like to feel air and see hair tricks and see things bounce and move and see headboards flexing etc. I love bass for the science more than the sound I love the fact that I told my girlfriends mothers boyfriend I can float hair with my music and he said it's impossible (thinks he knows it all) only to have floated HIS hair personally //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif

Just lately I've been going to comps and meeting the people and orginizing and it's a lot of fun, but I'm looking more locally I want to make New England mostly nothern new england shine more, have more competitors and showings so WE can have more shows and I dont have to drive hours to a show everytime I want one. Steve almost didn't come back he said if it was the way he figured it would have been he wouldn't come to Sound Resort again (I dont blame him.) but Backwoods Bumpers and TC Customs brought over 10 competitors and over 20 people and we got a special thank you and he said he would be coming back due to the turnout.

Now the point isn't that we all didnt hit 145+'s the point is we worked hard to be ready in little time with little money and we all came in 1st in our classes (whether or not we didnt have much competition.) So I think for our FIRST showing we did partially good and I AM proud of them. People brag about being able to run their systems for 30 seconds avg. I run my system for an hour straight at the SAME setting I did my SPL run at so that tells me I am doing soemthing right since I'm only running 1.2k. I'm not the loudest I'm not the best, but I am good at what I do and I have passion for it and respect for my fellow bassheads, The reason I'm so aggrivated is this thread was supposed to be a way to see who is around what they're running and make some common ground but instead it started out as a **** measuring contest. Personally I'm not impressed with ANY of the NESPL setups they are ALL messy including Keiths Dereks and Mikes, they aren't daily for the most part but they are good guys that are genuine and I feel are in it for the same reason and they dont treat me like a "noob." I just want everyone to get a long, come out for the meets and hit me up IF anyone needs anything seriously even IF you're not int he group I design boxes, I fiberglass, I get discounts on a lot of different stuff and I know my **** so if you NEED help and you're local call me 207 890 2649 have a good one everyone I guess I'll have to go about this a different way/

I LOVE competing my palms got sweaty, my heart started racing and I forgot to hit **** play on my ipod my first run last comp... You're right I'm lyin if im saying Im not in it to win it but I accept that I'm just like anyone else and if you're happy you're happy. I think the problem is everyone needs to meet each other and get an idea... So on that note lets do it! I'll put my SPL to the test and not my mouth //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif I promise a 145 off of 1.2K clamped playing music sealed. (btw my box is tuned between 32-33 //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif) Hell just for the occasion I'll run the SAME power and the SAME everything I'll just make a new box and I'll even keep my tuning below 35hz still I bet I'll gain a dB //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

looks dont get you loud. you may need to enjoy the sq side of things if you want perfection, or at least close to it. SPL builds are constantly changing, alot of bare wood, sanded fiberglass, and odd things aka tricks of the trade that just 'work'.

I appreciate that... To be honest most of my group is between 18-25 we aren't really old farts so to say //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/wink.gif.608e3ea05f1a9f98611af0861652f8fb.gif but don't think I have a problem with old school players hispls(jon) is a great guy and he does great work, Mike Gladu is funny as hell and really laid back, keith fafard is the man simple enough and derek well derek is derek :p. Anyways I have no problems with the older crowd infact I wish we had a couple Jason Lamonicas on our team. I might have been bitchy guys I'm sorry haha it happens I guess I'm not cut out for internet forums not really my thing it's just what I do when I'm bored or seeking information/sales.

Anyways through all this BS is ANYONE wants to contact me to meet up and see what were all about then we can go from there I provided videos and information so I guess I'll let yall take it from there lol.

That's cool and all but I can never do that I always need to be clean lol... Just me man I don't fancy messy setups. Looks don't get you loud and SQ is not SPL but I prefer the best of both worlds :p I guess that's why it's taking me awhile to get into the game. I guess I'll be the one oddball at comps lol. I honestly think Keiths and Mikes are actually really clean for SPL cars... Exo's isn't bad either.

To me, i dont care if the # is at 20hz or 60hz, if its a win its a win, thats what competing is...

My old crx was pegged @ 63hz, I could build a box tuned to 35 and it would still like 60-something hz... so I guess going by your logic I'd still be tuned in your area, only peaking where the car wants to.

I'll get at you some time to meter things, and yes even my hands get shaky every time I go up for a run //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

It's not by logic man theres a reason NESPL doesn't allow CRX's I've seen what they do... and how does it not matter if your number is @ 20hz or 60hz? by that logic hitting 150 @ 20hz and hitting 150 @ 40hz is equal? in terms of competing yes a win is a win but if the guy wins with a 20hz beat I concider him more efficient //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif

What's the weather like down in the cape during this time of year? I imagine it's bumfuck cold cause you're so close to the ocean, but I've only been down there in the summer
Generally it's pretty mild compared to elsewhere. Cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Ocean more or less regulates it. I've been up your way more than here most of the last month or so anyway.

Older is NOT OLD :p This sport/hobby keeps us young //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif and I know man I messed up it would be nice to tinker with someone that actually knows there way around and hear some 150's all day. Next time man there will always be next time and soon I'll have 2 more 15's to try on that 6K of yours //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif

how do you consider him more efficient? cause he can flex stuff? at competitions its about being louder than the next guy. where i can totally feel where you're coming from, i want to say you're wrong. the guy hitting 162 at 60hz in a crx in my book, is something to watch more than someone doing a 151 @ 23hz. im more interested in a number, also the guys getting those numbers have put more hours and time into there cars then you could possibly imagine putting in on your car. not saying they are better but im saying is that "the science" is there whether its how to be loud at 30hz or 60hz. if they do a 154.3 @29hz and do a 154.5 at 50hz guess what, the guy doing the 154.5 wins. thats all anyone will see in the end bro. if i was closer i would definitely come on out and have fun in your area. unfortunately i live 3k miles away. i encourage what your doing cause lets face it, like you said, its the new guys that keep the SPORT going. yes CA in general is a hobby, but if you consider the competitions and the driving and everything put into it, its more of a sport. good luck with next season and your team and hope to see some good numbers coming from you guys. sorry for the rant.

If Steve set up a category for where you have a score that's based on a combo of your SPL score and your frequency I would be all for it. For example, a 148 @ 33hz could beat a 151 @ 50hz. The lower the frequency, the more it acts as a multiplier to your SPL score.

Unfortunately I don't see that happening, so I won't be competing lulz
