    Took 2nd Place at the local comp last night

    It's all in the acoustics of the car. Some don't meter as well in the kick as they do on the dash sealed up. A few of my team members have the same issue, with me included while others have sen as much as a 3 DB increase from kick to dash. Mic placement and dirrectional turbulance right at the mic can affect it as well. Rather than it actually being at the kick, the mic monkey will put the mic next to where your dash meets the firewall at the console and the idiots will hold it there with thier feet. Totally throws the crap off. All depends on who is running the event sometimes. Keep yer head up man, you'll get the extra Db's yer lookin for in good time with playing with things in the car such as seat position, sun visor position, glovebox open ect...

    Sundown Vs Orion

    A little time spent looking for things saves alot of hassle, but i'll make it easy on you. New option added to SSD and Q Series - 04/15/07 We just added the "BP Power" option to both the SSD and Q series subwoofers. This new option adds a machined aluminum compression plug to the pole which helps channel all of the air under the dustcap around the coil for better cooling. To aid with this increased airflow we also add 6 axial cooling channels in the top plate. Along with increased thermal capacity comes the addition of an extra spider and a changed spider pack. All of these new features increase power handling from 200-500 Watts depending on the application.

    Playing with Big Boy Monster 15"

    I am debating whether to offer the 8-layer round coil at all as the 12-layer has been doing so well day to day. So... if that is the case I will likely offer the option of D1 or D2 (maybe a 0.7 for SPL) and the number of spiders. The cooling method in the monster sub is built into the motor and cannot be taken out, so that is standard. You had mentioned in another post that you were contemplating a copper coil for this sub as well. Is this still a viable option?

    Midwest sundowners?

    this takes things a tad off topic but not really but you people really crack me the hell up. Ecspecially you ///M5 considering you live in Minnesotta which is considered part of the informal geographic midwest.... The Midwestern United States (also called the Midwest, the Middle West, and The Heartland) is an informal name for a group of north-central states of the United States of America, usually including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin Now, bring on the pics

    Sundown Audio T-Shirts

    lol its cheap and cuts down on weight which in turn saves on shipping costs and actual shirt price. I can understand it from that perspective personally on using the bubble wrap....

    Sundown Audio T-Shirts

    Recieved my shirt today and in great shape. Surprisingly enough, not one bubble had been popped on the buble wrap it was wrapped in.
