  1. Bryan, just to remove all shadow of a doubt, can we redo the vote here on SSA? I feel since the sub's coming from SSA, we should let the core body of SSA folk decide who's deserving of it. It reduces the possibility of people tampering with the voting process as well and we can set an objective third party to handle the process (I would recommend Sean or Impious).
  2. Just felt it was necessary to share since it was stated it was not done... My apologies for not noticing the share. Your Facebook account is set to private and can't be seen by those who aren't on your Friends list, so there was no way to confirm.
  3. And later mentioned in the thread by Bryan: I want to clear up some of the specs too. The image can be an SSA meme, pics of your current setup, sad face... anything to help convince us that you are the one who deserves to win
  4. I do want to point something else out. Let's look at the contest rules and see which ones were done: Rules: 1. Goto www.SoundSolutionsAudio.com - Done by both of us 2. Register on the forums and/or sign in - Done by both of us 3. Scroll down to the Modified Section - Done by both of us 4. Post a picture in 12" XCON Giveaway Thread - Done by both of us (Picture must show why or how much you want to win) 5. With the picture post why you want or need the XCON - Done by both of us 6. Share this video - NOT done by Sickblack Just want to state the facts. We can scrutinize the integrity of a portion of my photo's likes, but if the rules were not completely followed, it should be addressed.
  5. Thank you. You and I have spoken about it and that is all that matters.Yep. No hard feelings. You did what you had to do
  6. I appreciate it and you def had my vote. My coworkers and I had fun talking about your entry as well. Bass and bags...made perfect sense to me.
  7. If anyone is confused, let me elaborate. I was technically DQed due to having too many spoof accounts (or accounts linked to like-traders) like my entry on Facebook. I have neither the time nor resources to track down the origin (nor do I think Bryan does). It did not come down to who had the most likes in the end. I will not be a sore loser, however, and hope that Sickblack actually does run and appreciates his XCON. That's one hell of a prize to win. I just want him to appreciate it
  8. I totally understand. Doesn't soften the blow, though
  9. Yes, you did bring it to my attention. Unfortunately I have no way of proving or disproving who did it. You have look at it from the other angle. All I know is that I have to figure out a more secure way to host voting and likes, etc... I hope you understand. This is not my job. I do Modified to try and boost the car audio community and because I love it. I have spent endless hours trying to provide will produced and edited content. I understand. It's not you I'm mad at and, for all I know, it could have been a competitor's attempt to disqualify my entry. Facebook doesn't provide conclusive evidence to the fact and that's the cold truth. From now on, if it's a SSA-related contest, does it not make sense to keep it in-house? A votes-based competition has no business on Facebook.
  10. And the fact I brought it to your attention before the contest was over that this was going on. So...to whoever sabotaged my entry by using like trades and spam accounts, please kindly go fuck yourself. It wasn't just me you ruined this for. Sickblack...all's fair in love and war. Hope you actually plan on running that sub
  11. Didn't you just get the DCON/Khaotik combo in your trunk?
  12. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen?
  13. I'd say yes and no to what I bolded. If you're chasing numbers on the meter, a scope is invaluable. I always tell people who don't own an oscilloscope to tune by ear. It was the advice I got from Stephen Mantz on how to tune his equipment, so I took it and ran with it. BUT...I remember reading something about the human ear only picking up on distortion closer to the 10% threshold, so going full tilt on your sub(s) probably requires a bit more due diligence than just a by-ear tune, especially if you're planning to go far beyond rated power to them. In this situation? Absolutely, tune with your eyes, ears, and nose. If someone tries to hand you a DD-1, just laugh. Tuning to a blinking light instead of using an iota of knowledge in car audio is starting to breed a lot of problems. Finally, OP, I don't know diddly squat about SoundQubed's bass knobs, but if there's any doubt, substituting it for an extra pair of RCAs and a PAC LC-1 should be high on your list.
  14. We can haz update? It's been almost 24 hours since the contest closed.
  15. This build would be insane by my standards, but for you? Just another walk in the park, right?
