i love memphis mojo i have 1 mojo in a small 1.5 box and i am hitting 150db and i used to have 1 12kicker l7 in an old school kicker box and i was hitting 140db i also have a 1 mmat p3 that i swear should hit more in spl than the mojo and the mmat is only 1000watts 750rms and the mojo is
2000watts 1000rms shows you power ratings dont always mean they are more powerful but like they say some subs or amps are under rated i do not like mtx amps i have 2 of there amps and the over heat and i had a surge problem and it set the surge straight through the amp to the speaker terminal which blow the amp i have the 1 TE1501D - MTX Thunder Elite and 1 TA81001- MTX Thunder and i hooked them up when 1 messed up then i hooked up the other and it happened to the next 1 i did fix the problem but the damage was done.

i have won several 1st place trophies with my systems

i would suggest a single system will do better in spl than a dual because you dont have the two pushing on each other but you could more than dual but dual are harder to deal with that is why i use a single sub system not a dual and i like to p!ss people off with my single sub wins

you have to learn how to set your sub for spl and loud doesnt me you will do great in spl its not the loudness its the pressure it puts out

my next system will be 1 10" kicker solo-x it should make it in the mid 150db if i set it up right with a box and amp and power setup all i need to do is get the money

damn i want to correct this but theres so much fail, i cant

any proof? make a vid of you hitting that score...not hating but i'm 99% sure you aint hitting those numbers with a memphis mojo...what amps you running??
well i blew my amp but i do hit 150db on a good day but my my average is 148db but i do hit 150db when i get a new amp i will gladly video tape it for you

and when you get a custom built box made you have to break it in by playing the sub in it just like breaking in a new sub the longer you play the sub in it what it does is compact the wood more and it makes it stronger and increases the db my amp blew before i could break it in

and the amp i used was TA81001- MTX Thunder and i had a TE1501D - MTX Thunder Elite i changed them out every now then just because i had both of them but i only had 1 hooked up at a time i also have a PCX-10F - Power Acoustik 10-Farad Hybrid Digital Capacitor running on a 2gauge wire and with the epic-160 it is like a crossover so that helps a little and i have a pioneer head unit

i run single sub systems they are better than a dual system you will get better spl with a single sub than dual because with dual systems you have problems with the 2 subs competing with eachother which means the pressure each one is putting out will hit eachother and blocks some of the db so just because 2 mojos cant do it doesnt mean 1 cannt and plus i know how to set sytem up and if you dont know how to then you wont get the max out of your system

i am hoping to improve my dbs with my new box and i am going to dynomate my trunk and add kicker door speakers i hope i atleast make 152db

no offense but either the meter you were using is way off or you are just flat out lying...

1. The only thing you have to do with a box is wait for the glue to dry...it does not get more compact....smh

2. That is nowhere near enough power to get a 150 out of 1 12" Mojo...

3. I think you're talking about cancellation in running more than one sub....that only happens if you are building a really complex box or are an idiot...running more subs equals more cone area and motor force which gives it much more potential for higher spl...

4. You're using a cap...i mean even newbs know caps aren't good for s**t...you might as well just get another batt...probably around the same price and a million times better....

what freq are you peaking at?? and what is the box tuned to??

you have no pics or vids of the setup at all? dude i'm positive you did not hit a 150...not saying you're lying but you definitely didn't hit it using that equipment...what kind of car is it?? and what freq did it peak at?? were you playing a tone??

Also i ask if it was a tl or not because they can adjust some of the other meters out there...i seen a guy do a 160 on an ac meter and only get a 145 on a tl....

umm.... wrong!!!!!!!!!!!

you do not break in a box .

so the sub makes the wood stronger!! wow didnt know that.

you break a sub in. which means you loosen up the suspension

wrong again!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE STOP TALKING TO WHOEVER TOLD YOU THIS BULLs**t!!!

lol. 2 subs are competing with each other? lol really. ok

what your talking about is cancelation. that happens when your subs are out of phase

you obviously dont know how to setup a system if your blowing equipment

dont know what your tuned too....
the box looks prefab anyway, so probably 50hz

whats your name and what date did this happen on, i know people that compete in SC. and if this really did happen, i have a way of pulling up old records. if it was a IASCA event

There is no best or worst really

Every company has that one piece of equipment that's actually decent.

It all boils down to goals and budgets

So anyone wana help me out because I don't know s**t about s**t

Is it possible to get a decent setup for around 2 bills? I need stereo+whatever else I can afford. I have the sizes for what my car needs, but looking around s**t seems mad expensive comparing to what I have heard of people spending on decent systems.

200? nah.

here's how it breaks down

150-200 for a decent headunit
75-100 for front speakers
250ish for a 4 channel amp
sub + box atleast 300.

misc wiring, batt, deadening= $$$


You could save if you buy used and pick up stuff little by little.

Okay well our standards for decent are different . Basically I am not an audiophile and I am okay with the low end s**t as long as it isn't that s**t that is hardly audible and sounds like a drive through speaker setup
