    Do you compete or are you wanting to compete?

    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!

    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?

    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.

    Since we're on the topic, maybe those of you who already compete could throw the rest of us a few links to some competitions. I doubt my system's ready to compete, but I wouldn't mind going to a competition to check out the cars.
    A car without turbo is a car with perpetual lag.
