Loud Trunks vol 2

So season has started and I am for one on the band wagon of trying on getting a trunk class added to Db drag just wondering what sort of scores are out there. My score just to clarify from the May 16 show 153.2 1 amp 2 batts at some point the neg terminal came off the front battery should have noticed since in testing with one batt was same score as the 152.4.

I hope to be out to play a bit this year Dave, No longer with the cavy unfortunately (Long story) but with my 05 Sunfire 4 door daily car, gonna start building and testing next week I`m hoping if I get time, Don't know if it will do anything spl wise but time will tell. I have a few amp choices and sub choices so time to Tinker & Test.

^^^ Ya that is what I had heard and seen in my web search also^^^ I`ll still give it a try and see what I can do.

From what I heard they tune low like 44-46hz, any truth to that?

Thanks

Thanks for the confirmation. Makes my sub and box choices more limited with the lower note. Time to see what I can do.

Thanks

Sup Dave!

I'm in massive rebuild mode lol

Gonna try something new for the GP and if it dont work out the shell will become another box lol

I moved everything to the trunk. I'll be able to get all 6 batts(maybe 2 more),both AB's,PG 200.4,subs and box.

I still have never removed nor cut any of the original body,struts etc... Working strictly with what the factory gave me. Someday I hope to catch you

dude your box looks really small... what frequency you tuned to?
have you considered switching to a single 15" that might solve the cone loading off the motor issues and also move more air... i know my single 15" did 154.2db more than 2 years ago... all equipment in the trunk... and only 2 group 31 optima batteries with engine off
