ya for an iasca show , who in all of canada honestly can afford to drive all the way to florida its just to far , and im talking about the prices for 2x and 3x shows just way to much money , when competitors are trying to make finals you cant get their just off 5 or so single point shows

that and the average person is scared their going to get their butts handed to them by a pro with 10 plus , if wayne brought in the power classes this wouldnt be an issue , thats whats nice about usaci and iasca both are very fair you go against people with the same power or cone area which is fantastic

money money money!!!

how do you participate in a so called "sport" without dropping at least 5 bills for the bare minimums... think about the first systems we all had.. old speakers and subs in makeshift boxes, hand me down decks ect.. not to mention the 90 mercury topaz it went in!

or atleast thats what i started with i dunno about the rest of you.

to do anything you need money... and with how many other things people need to do with their lives it just isnt realistic to be putting your hobbies first. because car audio in my opinion is a business and a hobby. not a sport period. I have played high level competitve hockey and lacrosse all across canada since ive been 6 years old and know what a " sport " entitles. It has always pissed me off that people have the nerve to call any aspect of audio a sport. just because you have a competition doesn't mean its a sport - ex. a spelling bee is also a competition

thats just it , I to played high level lacrosse hockey and the amount ive spent on one amp or sub is more then what all my gear cost to play those sports , theese days to be even competitive in the lanes you need at minimum a single 16k or an american bass 1100.1 , its very hard to be competitive against cars crammed full of dd or soundigital , but at the same time its not that hard to peice together a stereo if you start before the season starts say around now buy 1 item at a time when the season starts you will have the stereo needed to be competitive

well thats exactly why audio had dwindled due to the fact it takes that time and money to actually be competitive.

which is why usaci and iasca in my oppinion are the way of the future for audio take a look at how iasca runs each class is based on cone area and experiance everyone is placed in a class were they are against somone with the same cone area and same experiance as them its very competitive and the rookie classes are great as far as bringing in new competitors , usaci has trunk classes which in my oppinion needs to be put into db drag
