Default The "$150 SPL Challenge"

So, "Pro-Rabbit" started this over on another "CA" forum and I thought it was awesome and wanted to see if anyone over here wanted to get in on this because I am totally going to do it.

We can start our own challenge over here and I wil personally get the plaques made up if Pro-Rabbit doesn't want it to be a multi-forum competiton.

Lemme know what you guys think...

Quoted from the "official" rules as per Pro-Rabbit...

Quote:
The Offical $150 SPL Challenge w/rules
***Official Rules of THE $150 SPL CHALLENGE!!***


-All items must be new(with links to EVERY DAY pricing..I don't care if it is an ebay store or other sites) *
-Classes are Class A -Trunk, Class B- Hatch and SUV, and Class C- Truck (all classes will be a "basic stock" format)
-Must be ran on a 12-14 volt electrical
-Metering format TBD [Edited: 2/17/11]
-No limit on amount of subs or amps
-No limit on batteries or wire size(many will just be tossing this in and there is no need to run a stupid 8 or 4 gauge wire just for this)
-MUST be in the "cargo" area of a vehicle
-$150 limit to include purchase of sub(s) and amp(s). Other materials, taxes, shipping will not be included in the total price.
-Must be a video of the run, with proof in the video that the product purchased for $150 is what is producing the score.
-Season will run from Feb 1st to Nov 1st. I will personally give out plaques to those who are current record holders at the end of the season.
-All runs must use a TermLab to produce the score.


*-No internet specials of any kind. Must be daily prices from ebay or other sites with no discounts.

**-Outlaw as described per USACi rules.

***-Legal as described per DB Drag rules.


If pricing gets to be an issue, I will implement a similar rule used in racing for motors. If any other member wishes to purchase any other members sub(s) and amp(s) for $150(plus shipping) then it would have to be sold. Again, this will only be implemented if pricing becomes a issue.

What's funny is I was actually thinking of posting a challenge to see who could get the loudest scores on the cheapest equipment. I'd deff be into this.

what about old used equipment? think we'd just do a case-by-case basis and assess the value of the stuff?
