actually I was referring mostly to SQ (sound quality) comps. I would be lucky to hit 130 dB with my 2 8's but they match the output of my mid/tweets a lot better.

Re: competitions

yeah actually im the current state champ in SQ.. ive been 2nd in the nation for about 2 years now.. a little tweaking and i should have it

you guys dont know SQ until you hear sony 6x8s (one of which is blown) off a sony HU and overwhelming bass from that sloppy CVR 15

I was just curious, they seem to have fallen out of favor ..... maybe cuz most people think of contests as "crank 'em ups"

Re: competitions

yes it's dying.


the event in january had a decent turn out. in febrary, the show was cancelled due to the weather. Just last month (one event per month), the show was cancelled on the spot because less than 10 people showed up.
