Default Whats the single most ridiculous thing?

When it comes to car audio dealing with people who think they know it all and have no clue....what is the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard anybody say about their car or systems in general. Mine would have to be a guy around where i live who said he took thiscar to the world finals....1996 jeep cherokee, 4 12 audiopipe pr12bs(750w rms), pyle 4000 watt 2 channel amp, stock alt, stock batt, 4 gauge wiring with no fuse block(he said it did not allow the entire amounts of current to reach his amp and that the amps fuses worked just fine). He said he hit a 155 and change with this setup. haha had to giggle at that

Default Re: Whats the single most ridiculous thing?

lol i went to a local shop to talk to the guy's and see what they had heard about the kicker warhorse and such. then asked them if they had a price list for all the kicker suff they carried, which were pretty good prices.

any way this guy comes in and is looking around so the guy im talking to goes ill be right back.
so he talked for a few then they both started walking over towards me. the employee says he has a question and i dont know the answer maybe you do. and right as he finished he sort of winked.

they guys questiom was.

i bought a 3 kicker 12" l7s. one dual 4 and 2 dual 2 so i said ok.
he goes and i also bought 6 power akoustik 600w rms amps so i could hook up one to each coil.

so i said why?

he goes more power. i was like you know the amp is only going to give like 250w right. he goes no i didnt know that but it says 600w rms on the box. i was like power akoustic is a cheap china company and extremly over rated.

then i asked him why he bought 1 dual 2 and 2 dual 4

he goes cause i was gonna put them in one box with 3 chambers and put the dual 2 in the middle so it is louder.

so i was like are you kidding me? he goes no why?
i go that is the stupidest thing i have ever heard.
so he goes well if your so god then build me a system and ill return the other stuff and buy this one.

i was like ok how much you got to spend? he goes 700. i was like ok.

so i said what do you want?

he goes 3 12s and like 2000w. so i was like ok.

so i asked the guy for his parts list/catalog.

so i said 3 12s right? he goes yea, i said all you want is 3 12s? he goes why?
i was like cause you can go with 2 12s and get ones with higher rms. he goes like what?

so i said 2 alpine type r's (shop was selling them for 130 each. and a kicker 1500.1 (selling for 400 meh)
and get a ported box tuned to 33hz around 1.4 cubes each.

so he goes alright. so the guy bought all the shit and since he bought it there they also installed it.

now he already had his own h/u in but this place installed the box, subs, amp, and wiring in like 35 minutes. and they did a good job too.

so i was like ok see how it is.

so he gets in his little volkswagon gti (which had a blue top?? idky)

turns it on and is like fuuuuuuck thats too loud for me i was like are you serious? and you wanted 3 12s with 750w each? he goes yea that wouldnt have been as loud.


some people are stupid.

Default Re: Whats the single most ridiculous thing?

One of our Dbdrag 3x shows is at a huge car show (Dropfest) but we are seperated from the show cars. Well one of the show car guys (who Im good friends with and who owns a car audio shop) brought in a car mic he uses at his shop. The car show is held on the race track and the DBdrag is held right along the 1/4 mile strip.

So anyways i went over to the track and a kid asked if I was in the sound comp cause he saw me walking from that direction.

I told him Yes I was

He asked what I had hit and what my setup was.

I told him I had two FI BTLs on a RF T40001bd with a 250amp alt and 6 stinger batts. I hit a respecatble 148.5

Him and his friend started laughing. Then began to tell me how they have a dodge neon srt-4 with two Powerbass 2xls on a 1000w powerbass sub and they hit a 153. They then told me, thats what happens when you buy off brand subs like FI.

I never told them the mic was off by something like 16 db, at least thats what Dusty (guy who owned the mic even told me)

Long story short I told them next year to enter the DBdrag part of the show and maybe next year I will be loud enough to compete with them
