yeah...theyre using an engine.....i dont like it either ....but at that competition..did you guys see that memphis van, it was just flashed on there for a second, the guy that built that is a dealer about 30 minutes from me, i m pretty sure he said it won in a national competition in like 2004 i think
Watching it in slow mo, it was the "sub" that broke loose and smashed the sunroof out. Not the DB levels. They should have taken a procomp system that was known to hit high numbers, park it next to the junker, run new speaker wires from it to a bunch of 18's. and try it then. They seem to be cheating latly on the show. Wasnt there some body on here a while ago looking for help cause his Sony 10" kept blowing out the rear window of his buddys jeep?
Damn thats a HUGE woofer... pretty tight too. Equivelent of what did it say? 160 10" woofers. Sweet... as far as the show goes I didn't get a chance to see it because I had third shift at work, but I've seen some of the shows and they take a more scientific approach to their research rather than a practical approach. What I mean is that unlike most of us who would want to see them put a sub in a box and supply it with some juice to see if it blows windows out, they probably did what they could to ENSURE a blowout (or at least probable conditions for it to happen). So its not that they "cheated," they were just testing it hypothetically using the good ol' scientific method. It would have been pretty sweet to see the windows go out, but you'd need to discover the windows resonance frequency, and a whole ton of other factors become involved as well. Hell if it was me I'd stick a sub in a glass box and let that blow up... sucks I missed the show
THAT is the kind of sub they should have used on Mythbusters....I would say that they missed it on that one, the myth was definately NOT busted. Their "subwoofer" only lasted 10 seconds... now I do agree 161.3db is loud, but in my opinion, they did NOT use a real subwoofer. They definately need to revisit this one...maybe wire up a bunch of 18's with enough power to them....how about what those guys did on that video where they hit 171 (I think) and cracked the door off of the car. something like that. I was really disappointed
