Thanks MegaHurtz,
I don't think they really had it turned up that loud, i know that sub could hit well over 100 db's easy, first they said there was like 8500 watts, then they just say 6000+ when they tell the guy, they would have to install a new battery(s) and alternator also, those capacitors are not going to do everything.

That sub is funny looking. The Dust cap/cone looks like a JL w6/7.

You guys are right, it should have been louder.

that was metered with all the doors open and the trunk open. and it looked like they were using the trunk as part of the box. open up all your doors and trunk and put a guy in the passenger seat...then put the mike in the center console and see what you hit

I'm sure they do know that though, you think about all the installs they do for all the famous people, do you think they pay them 10's of thousands of dollars to F*ck their brand new Escalades and crap up? Its a 30 min show with about 15 min of commercials, they're not gonna show every single thing.

I personally can't stand the show. All the cars they do on there are completely ridiculous...some of the stuff that goes into the cars on the show are completely WTF. For example, this sub, a juicer, a dog grooming station...I would seriously be pissed if my car came back with no back seat and a 350lb woofer in it, especially if that thing hit only 100dbs.

Yeah but before the show the car was worth about $100...now he could probably sell it for 10 grand to someone on ebay.

you are prolly right, but i guess it would depend on what subs and amps he was using.

I hit 150.8 with (1) 15" RFL with a xtant 1001D.

I was basing my opinion on the fact that he was using two most likely low end MTX subs. I'm quite aware that he could have gotten that loud, but not with the equipment he was most likely using.

on a poorly tuned velocity mic any kind of ****ed up numbers are possible. with the audiocontrol sensor I have seen some anomalies as well.

on the old termlab mic I hit about 147 one day when I was normally at 140 on a sensor, or 143ish on a properly tuned termlab velocity mic. if somebody was to tell me what they hit and it wasn't on a sensor mic (much more accurate), I wouldn't even really care, because the score could so easily be way off.

just yesterday I was running an SPL show using the AC sensor mic and for most of the morning the mic was taking normal readings, but as the day went on and the weather heated up, we started seeing scores take big jumps. we are tlaking as much as 12+ dB. my buddies car that does 169.8 consistently did 173.4, so that was the first indication that something was wrong. the actual cause for this we are not sure, but we believe excessive heat was the cause. anyway, the point I am making is that the mic isn't always accurate. 147 db isn't always 147 db. the only time I will give it 100% credibility is if it is a certified score.

also, contrary to what wayne harris said, there are ways to fool the termlab sensor system. there are 2 ways that I know of, one that I was told about personally from somebody very high up in the spl game.

so long story short, an spl score isn't necessarily all that it seems to be

Underpowering doesn't kill a speaker. Neither does harmonic distortion, at least not to the extent the people claim.

Underpowering leaves a greater margin for distortion at high volume. Distortion at high volume kills speakers.
