142 is nothing to complain about.. for a first show using a store boughten box and PG Elites you did very well.. congrats..

My First run was a 137.0 using a ported box..
My Best Run was a 140.1 using that same box - simply by moving the box back

I built a new box - tuned a bit higher - larger port - 142db
same box - added braces - reson - 143.7

Built a sealed spare tire enclosure - 134db. Broke a chunk out of the bottom of it - its sitting waiting for me to repair it.

Built my current box - bigger port area (150 Squar inches) and it is by far the loudest - yet to meter it,, i was just lazy on Sunday

I think its time to buy a meter

Nice to hear Redball is still in operation. I've attended a few shows of theirs back in the day.

sounds like you need a new box

A customer of mine had a car there with 2 RF P2 10's and it hit 143.6db and it was all in the box. I'm sure there is a few DB left to be had in your setup just need to spend some time building and tuning a proper SPL box.


edit wrong db...lol...

edit...edit...not the wrong db confirmed by other sources.

Nope not there but I did have the car on our meter hitting 144db....also it doesnt matter if a guy has 9500's if they are in the wrong box and underpowered. Unfortunate thing is I have not seen one properly built SPL box in the Belleville area period except for ours.....wait wait I havent seen one porperly built box at all not just SPL boxes and thats including what I see from the other shops in town.
