 just got metered

Ok i got metered today (lame, it costs $25) it doesnt add up. I had two large mag 12"s in about a 6 cube huge ported and tuned box on about 1200 rms a while back it metered at 142.3 Now i have two treo TENS yes TENS (tsx) ran off a jbl 600.1 in a probox (proboxrocks.com) and it metered 147.5 at one point playing track No.9 on the new D4l album. i guess its the box? or treos kick some ass.

There are quite afew variables. Here are some different scenerios 1. Was the meter the same meter? The difference between different mics can be huge, especially if dealing with the old AC / Termpro mics and the new sensor units. 2. If the same mic has it been calibrated recenty? 3. Was the mic placed in the same position? For instance, was one measure "legal on the dash" and the other "outlaw" style? That is quite a jump. It could be that the larger box was ported too low for SPL purposes and the 10 box was tuned higher. That is a possible answer.

the shop owner said my last box was tuned at 18 hz, lol. It was a throw together box, and the probox is tuned at 37hz i believe. Im going for a new amp, and a new dual chamber ported box, and try to hit a 149. It was also a termlab, and it was in the port. So because its a trunk car, it would prolly only read like a 140 on the dash...

18 HZ? Wow, I am not sure I have ever heard a box tuned that low. Did it sound good? That would explain some of the difference it SPL though.

yes it was extremely loud at low notes. Your head would bobble on the head rest if you leaned back. Man, it would kick ass if i could hit a 150 with 10''s! i just won a diamond d3600.1, gonna try to hit a 148 with 600 rms. That would be frickin awesome

If you metered it in the port at 149 I think a more realistic meter on the dash would be mid to high 130's

I thought 18hz is inaudible??? Anything under 20hz is able to be felt, but not heard. Perfect frequency for spl is not specific, but I would think anything from 50 to 60 hz would be good.

yes you are probably right, but 18 hz notes were hardly played, just low notes shook the shit out of everything

I dont know how good your subwoofer is but some subwoofers burn at 20 hz, it's too strong for the woofer, most competition for spl use 45hz & up, thats were the good numbers are made at spl meter.

FYI, 147 in the port really isnt anything to write home about in the port. Like the one kid said you are probably low to mid 130's on the dash. If you went to a comp doing port wars you would get blown away. Not trying to be a prick, just trying to give you a heads up. Now get a nice box for those treo's and throw a good amp and try and get over 140's on the dash, then you would be impressed.

600 Rms and a couple of 12's in the right box, the right car and on and on. Yea it can be done. I was metered in the driver seat at 149. Don't know the freq. but yea it kicks you ass all over the car. Nothing feels better no hovering above the seat.
