  7. for real...that was funny as hell, had me super worried in the beginning though
  8. probably in like s3 in which they would get dominated if there are any true s3 cars there, cause an s3 car should be in the 150s+ or if they havent ever competed they could run amature class...and probably be in as3 (car off, on music, suppose to be no cussing in music)
  9. depends on cone area and amount of fusing...i would recommend reading up on the rules over at mecacaraudio.com
  10. i feel dumb for not knowing for sure as i was a member for 3 years, but i wanna say yes i cant remember the exact amount it cost to get a meca membership...but if only plan on doing a couple of shows this year then i wouldnt bother as finals are in october..i would just wait til next year to get the membership..
  11. c'mon down bro...like i said, im not sure what kind of turn out its gonna be how or how organized its gonna be as its his first show as host oh yea..$25 entry fee..and i will update the first post with the actual flyer...thanks!
  12. An old friend of mine (Bud Ballinger) is hosting his first show...and we are trying to get as many people to come out and try and bring the audio scene back to Louisville!! So please come if you can. I heard the parking lot is kind of small, so i am not sure how it will go down. He said if the turnout is big enough he might have people pull into the shop to do their run then park back outside. Not sure on what kinda awards/trophies they are gonna be giving out, but would assume it will be like any other MECA event. Aug. 7 10am-5pm Mountain City Audio 104 N Bardstown Rd Mt Washington, KY 40047 $25 entry fee for spl...think its another $25 for drive-by spl (might be off on that one though) flyer: http://www.mecacaraudio.com/flyers/8-07-10KY.pdf Mount Washington is actually just bit south of Louisville actually (about 20-30minutes south) Come on out fellas! also another show there on aug. 28th!
  13. every kid out there (myself included) wants "to do it big"...i mean who doesnt you need to compete and do decent you need to know what u are doing so u dont ruin equipment left and right and like hank said....a full sponsorship doesnt really exist anymore (extremely rare)...basically its just discounted prices on things..but u still gotta pay to play
  14. sub2weeker...please go this is not a burp machine...had he built it to do number then i have no doubt it would be well into the 60's however...hank builds systems to play music loud for extended periods of time...not a 4 second burp so again...with all do respect..and i do mean with all do respect...STFU!!
  15. thats what i wanted to hear....hope to hear this beast then! sick work man!
  16. you aware brah? bertstare.jpg anyways...interesting specs to say the least...
  17. saw u on broadway today in lexington, ky...bumping pretty nice.. so if u post here...reveal yourself!
  18. i try and keep under a 9:1 ratio....so scrap the 30"x1" port something bigger than a 9:1 ratio may have port noise...
  19. im the same...i would prefer 34hz...so cut a couple of inches off the port...and loose the brace...
  20. im afraid thats the name of the game...china imports and exports were the biggest pain in the ass to work on!!! i have a feeling they are going to want to start charging you like warehouse fees or something similar for them sitting in customs so long. if you go thru ups send me the shipment number and i will email it to the girl i know in the international department and see if she can do anything more....not sure since you already have a contact taking care of it...but ya never know..
