i won street max 1-2 (1st place) 144dbs at 49 hz
i got third in bassrace 130 class...couldve been in the finals but i over shot 139.9 and i accidently hit 141.9 :-(
SH!T
altho i like 141.9 for my score i shouldve stayed under 140.0 so i could place higher

so here are the numbers u bastar*ds have been wanting:

bassrace-141.9
db drag -144.0 even

ill have pics of the trophy and medal later

^^ .. with retuning and new box designs and that amount of power you can see more than 145s.. its a pain and all trial and error. best thing to do is put your sub in a sealed box and get it metered to find the resonant frequency of your car then tune your next box to that.. its a pain .. have to meter inside and outside the car and well im not quite sure hows its done but someone on here can tell you :-) .. waiting to do that to my car before i build a new box so im working on a new backplate and floating amp rack for my amp

"on cheap equitment"

so probably not even 140, and you're putting down someone else's score which was metered on the only one that counts?

didnt Cholo win the 139.9 class. Pipo called me on the way home to tell me that he finally broke into the 153's in bassrace. I finished that system about 3 months ago, but he kept having problems with the radio face flying off and turning the radio off during his run.

drivin there is something wrong with your sh*it. and its definantly your box. you need to start over, and build a box with subwoofertools or another program. you should have 100 or more sq. in. of port area with a sub with such a high xmax. i bet if you put in the xmax on the subwoofertools.com, it will givey you a port area of lke 120 sq. in. thats a realy good site too. you only have like 50sq.in. thats what im running on my ssi, and i think that is also my problem.

I just wanted to chime in for a sec.

1) yes, 1 L5 15" can do 144dB+ on the TL. I have done 148.0dB w/ 2 L5 15's on a 1000w amp. First try! I guessed at the trucks res. freq. and tuned to 50hz, we peaked at 54hz.

2) RF T3002 doing 827w...bull sh1t! If RF thinks they can tell people that, they can kiss my @$$. I can see ~500w, but 800+! They must not have the intelligence to realize that current and voltage are out of phase w/ one another and they check for amplifier power w/ all meters on "peak hold".

3) driving, hit me w/ an email...i may be able to help ya out.

4) Pipo is a crazy mudafuka....lmao

FYI...a tight 190ac is only 3db off of a TL, and in my experience arent 10 db off unless your in Danville IL, at Bud's, and some jackazz is playing with the sensitivity to make their cars louder.....and yours quieter. ;)

-Power at 1ohm means nothing if your box rise is 3.5ohm.

-The install is EVERYTHING. I have seen an single sony 15" do 141!

-Test, tweak, and rebuild till you are cross-eyed!!

-If you have never metered a car on the Termlab and ACTUALLY sat in 140 or 145 or 150db...YOU DO NOT REALIZE HOW LOUD IT IS!!!!!

-In a comp, every 0.1dB counts!

-Over kill is never enough :-)
