he liked it, but i was just letting him use it for the comp, im gonna see how both of them do in my car once i get a system back in it. I wish we had had more than a 1200 watt amp on the subs, we coulda made the scores alot closer.

My thoughts as well, my bro in law that ran in 251-500 with a better set of 12's and one of my AQ 3500's would have owned in that class. But you guys still did great!!!

get 2 of the aq 1200ds and strap the, haha, then you get to play with lower ohm loads.
from the scores the truck put up, i can see a 54 being possible out of it on my amps. 55 if we get lucky.

that truck is giving me ideas to be competitive in usaci stock classes. Ill have to go look up what the top scores are for them.

so i just looked up the scores and was seeing 153.5 and a 156.2, and thought that doesnt seem too hard if im already in the 50s by just dropping in a box.

but then i scrolled down and saw outlaw scores.
157.6 and a 160.8 for the lower classes... then i scroll back up to see the other scores are on the dash.

looks like ill have to get to a 160.8+ for my cars usaci class too.

That's un man to the way yall do it u can gain 1 to 1.5 db by haveing someone sit on the mike. An usaci has power limits its hard to gain 2 or 3 db with out adding power if u don't know what to do

Man'd or un man'd it does the same number, me and james metered it about 4 dozen times or more and on different power, I can't explain it either. The only thing we can come up with at this moment is because it is louder with the windows down, both of them so it doesn't matter if someone is in there or not, one theory we have is my door flex on the mic side is causing this. Just have to test for that.

It was the 4 15s walled in the sierra that did the 160

Also i think Jeff has also changed the rules to say where the mic has to be(should have been in effect at final). Setting on the mic or hugging should not be possible with that being in effect.
