Why in the hell would you ever want to compete in any of it?
I've had a few people IM/PM/Email me about competing, kinda shocked me really.
I'm wondering just how much interest there is out there, and I'm not just talking about SQ, SPL can be a crap load of fun.
Post up if you are! I'm just curious more than anything!
bah - so true - sorry Turbo
Just as long as it passes my personal SQ test, it is good enough for me. No reason for me to compete, I have too much other stuff to waste time and money on, and I don't need other people telling me how good/bad my persoal system is for my personal in-car enjoyment . The enjoyment for me is tearing apart the car and building stuff, and the greatest accomplishment I am always after in car audio is getting the car back together with 2 or fewer leftover screws, hehe (note: that is a joke, I don't think I have ever had any leftover parts), and the rest is just benefits (aka good SQ, clean install, and such).
Um, silly noob question here... I guess SQ and SPL are different levels of car audio competition, but what does those acronyms mean?
SQ = Sound Quality?
SPL = So Phucking Loud?
LOL, I thought it was something like that... hehe
see, I can understand where you are coming from.
The thing is, the install portion of SQ judging is essentially just making sure you have followed good install practices.
As for sound, the judges are only telling you how close or far you are from the ideal, not necessarially that 'your car sounds like ****'...lol
It's pretty damn rewarding to spend all this time and effort on this stuff, to go to shows, and to win, and to get the attention from a job well done.
That, and I believe that it pushes you to be better! but then again, I have a compeditive spirit.
It is totally cool that good competitors are here on the board.
I do not have the time, money or inclination.
Glad you enjoy it and thanks for contributing here
