    Was it an actual dB drag race? Because last season they didn't do power classes, only IASCA did. Either way not bad for two Kenwood 10's! What were the other people running?

    it would ve been street



    heres the class


    · Street A – A maximum of 2 subwoofer amplifiers may be used. Total subwoofer amplification is limited to a maximum of 4 “non-bridged” output channels or 2 “bridged” output channels. (Please see the definitions section for more detail regarding bridging.)

    Additional Guidelines for the Street Division:



    · Amplifiers used for non-subwoofer applications will not be counted.

    · Subwoofers may not contain more than 2 discrete voice coils per sub.

    · Cargo vans and commercial vehicles are prohibited from competing in the Street Division.

    · Sponsored vehicles are not permitted in the Street Division.

    The classes listed above are the recommended standard classes for dB Drag Racing. Typically, all of these classes will be offered at multi-point events. However, if there are fewer than 8 entries in a given class, or if the event is a single-point event, the show promoter may, at his discretion, combine one or more classes in order to fully populate the elimination brackets. In any case, the number of classes offered, and their specific breakdown, is at the discretion of the show promoter.

    Right now I've got two Rockford Fosgate Punch HX2 12's behind the seats of my Del Sol, with a Cadence Z7000 amplifier (1500 watts rms :eek: ). I'm waiting to see how well it does on the meter...

    my friends and i entered in a local db drag at a car show like a month ago... we built the box the morning of the show :-D

    anyhow, it only hit 143.7, but that's because we only had 1 500w pheonix gold running all 4, and running 2 different sizes of subs off the same amp didn't exactly work in our favor. anyhow, here's a pic of the fun.

    :lol: That's a crazy set up! But yeah, my brother inlaw has like 4 kicker sl 15's with 4 bd1500's, in Alaska, he claims to have hit aroundd 15X. I am not sure if that is really loud, but yeah it is a show truck so the enclosures are that dandy for contest.

    different size woofers is usually poor for SPL anyways
    unless the boxes are tuned VERY carefully they will just cancel eachother out resulting in low SPL scores
    they will have different Q levels, and different response times
