Phantom car audio in mississauga is having a competition this sunday and i was wondering if i should enter it.I get a lot of people looking at my sub and would like to show what its capable of.I know a few guys with the same sub and box with similar amps tht hit 149(not on termlab though).I don't have my car deadened but it gets really loud.Whats's it like competing for the first time? I was thinking of just seeing what everyone else has and maybe just entering the next one.Should i be more confident with what i have?

Any system with a sub is comp worthy....

Get out and give it a try...If it doesnt work for ya,try something else and come back again...Thats what we do,Man!!

Most of all...Dont go out to win...GO HAVE FUN!!

well thats what i mean, i want to do it for the fun, however i am a man and i'm competitive as well.I still have a lot to learn but i don't want to look bad if i don't get a high score.Like i said i would really like my friends to see what my e15a can do, and i know it can do well.

Don't push your E15a too hard ... I've heard/seen horror stories on the internet about what happens when that thing hits Xmax ...

really, what have you heard.I know that the people who had problems with their e15a's had defective ones.I also know that the people who aren't having problems push theirs with more power than what i have.I also know of some people pushing theirs with 2500 watts in a bigger ported box than mine.I know the e15a can take a lot of abouse if its not defective and since i had mine for 10 months pounding hard, i'm not really all tht concerned, but thanks for the warning

use a sweep on bass mekanik cd. or if it has sin waves start at 35 hz and go up a hz every 2 seconds untill it stops gaining
what u hit depends mostly on the car and someone on the gear.

u should break 140 on the termlab with that tho.
