 What constitutes a competition system?

I've been curious about competitions since I started upgrading my system. I'm waiting for the next event to pop up in my area so I can go check it out. Is there a newbie guide on these events? As the title says, what constitutes a competition system? Once I am finished I'll be driving 2 10" solobarics from a Kicker ZR360. I also have a zx460 driving Polk 6.5" in the doors. Everything is running off of a Kenwood DPX701. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of a competition is those guys with 6 12" subs and 4000 watts of power. Is there a class that I could eventually compete in, or am I better off just being a spectator?

the most entertaining form of competition ive found is bass race. bass race does not require the extremely high end equipment, it all comes down to how well you can control your system, notice i say CONTROL! bass race is for "street beaters" and "ground pounders". you play music for 30 seconds and it takes an AVERAGE score, not a peak. classes are 119.9 and down, 120-129.9, 130-139.9, 140-149.9, 150-159.9, and 160+. the advantage of this form of competition is that the "average" consumer can be competitive, everyone has the same chance of winning, and it "run what you brung". i can compete in the 119.9 and down class and win with my ford taurus and the factory stereo. im currently #2 in the world in points in the 130-139.9 class and #1 in the world in the 130-139.9 class in average score. bass race is THE future of audio competition.

I would say go for it. For me there is nothing like being a competitor at a stereo competition, but that is just me. Maybe you don't like competing, but you will never know until you give it a honest effort. And as far as "What constitutes a competition system?" What ever system a competitor has in their vehicle is a competition system. As long as you are happy with your system, that is all that matters. Some people are just not satisfied unless they are constantly pushing the envelope and trying to get louder, while others are just as happy with having a "street banger" or "ground pounder" system and showing it off to people at the shows they attend.

to me a competition install is one that you compete with. With SPL installs not really needing to be pretty to be competitive, you can get away with some really fun competition. For SQ, both USAC and IASCA prefer to have a clean install to look at...but it isn't required in the new Q class at USAC. No install judging, just how clean is the soundstage and imaging.

A competition car is one you compete with. If you are proud of your accomplishment, run it through the lanes. Enjoy!

Like everyone is saying, If you got something in the truck that goes BOOM then you got a competition system. I host shows all over and there are guidlines to a system. If you got it then play it. You should be but in a class against others just like yourself. The only way you will ever learn anything about the sport is to try it and dont be discouraged becuz someone was louder, we all started somewhere and had to learn the same way. I have broken 5 different world records this year becuz I didnt quit after my first show. Now I run one of the loudest teams and I still help non team members that want to learn. Thats what its all about... I've helped a good number of people on this forum...... Just have to seek it...
