I was wondering if any one could tell me what class i would be in in meca. Im running a DD M2A and 2 Sundown SA-8's with two C&D Tech 134ah Batts, no fusing. I was thinking AS1 and S1 but wanted to make sure if any one on here does meca

S5 with no fusing. They have some rule about amp power, but your points wont count if you go that route. They will most likely just throw you in the biggest class anyway. best bet is to just add an inline 40 ampagu fuse within 18" of the amp and run s1 or an amatuer class.

I was planing on not running any fusing what so ever. As for pox its just going to be a ported enclosure built for the two 8's. The box will be resined on the inside with a metal bar for bracing. No not really concerned with points towards finals. was just going to hit up a louisville ky show

Youll just have to read the rules and ask them abou the amp power when you get thier if not youll be in S5.

Alright you take the highest rating of the amp divided by 2 which is 1150 + cone area which is 100.48 = 1250.48. That puts you in S3. Still think you should just get a cheap agu fuse holder and add it on there just for the show and run S1.

I was going to run external aeros but idk. i know the box needs to be 1.2 cuft according to the testing by sundownz. im pretty sure he hit 150's in his jeep so i at least would like to hit a 145. got any suggestions. I still have batts the dc alt, suv is double layered with fatmat. got plenty of 1/0 to run batts and power wire
