You talking about the Db's I claim or wire gauge, or watts of amps/ batts or cb's or what? Or the OHM level? Also remember that db's for SPL depend strongly on the frequency broadcast. When at comp I use a 60htz frequency. For just daily driving I change the range to center more in the 80-100 range for listening to mostly rock. When the frequency range goes higher the db range lowers. Playing Lamb of God it reads about 157- 161. Play ICP goes up slightly, and playing a Bss Mechanics frequency sweep you can idealy tune your setup.

i'm talking bout the db you claim, theres simply no way that your hitting anywhere near 168db, i've seen 12 18"s on 20,000 plus watts hit low 160's, its just not probable that your 4 10"s on 4000 watts are out performing that on any level of frequecy,

and on another note, when the frequency range lowers the db lowers, thats why you dont see anyone comp'in with a 32-35hz box which is what most tune to for daily use

You can't enter any comp under 60htz. The lower the the frequency the more you feel the bass. It's all good though, we can meter it and you'll see. It's not all about the power and what not. Yes that is at least 95% of it, but if you can make the area you are trying to meter air tight as possible you can gain greater levels.

I still believe the most important unanswered question from before was to know if you were metering legally at the dash or in the port..

That was metered at the dash during a DB Drags Comp in Canton Ohio in June 2008. It was entered in the Street extreme 3+ class.

People enter with lower tuning than that. How would they even know what your tuning is without measuring your port, etc? I mean if you knew the resonant freq of the car, and then tested for highest tone reading you could probably get close if you know what you're doing.

That's cool. I will PM it after finals. I am just done wasting my time posting arguments against people I do not know nor them know me. Let me know what the charge is for metering.

On a side note I am about to replace my main truck batt, curious which is better yellow or red top Optima?

150db daily on the TL is hard enough.
