i am thinking of buying a new cougar but unless it has enought room for a db drag style sytems i will not buy it. looking to run 2 12"s in 3 cubic foot boxes. will i still have enough room for batterys and amps?
excelent, even more of a reason to buy one. what are some number you guys or gals are hitting anyone part of db drag? also what kind of electrical system is stock? size of stock battery and altinatro size and output?thanks
Im runnin about 2000 watts to my 3 12s...sealed box facin back...stock batt and alt(even have underdrive pulley!) and I hit 143.6 with a half blown amp...when it was fixed I hit 150.6 on front seats....now i have a new rf amp with more power... up to 1590 RATED from 1322...so i dunno what ill hit this year.
I had my altenator re-wound to produce about 160 amps. I hit on average a 156.7db, but with non-sanctioned numbers coming close to 159. I used 3 optima yellow tops with 4 gauge wiring to everything. 2 MMats LM4065hc's and 3 D200hc's, total wattage of about 6800 watts RMS. My system was never tuned correctly, and could have broken 160 with correct tuning!
Did you have your system metered before the alternator was rewound? Was everything else in the car (other than the alternator) the same before and after the alternator work? How do the numbers compare?
I actually had a 3db increase with the soundstream amps that I had before, at first I was hitting 148's-149's, afterwards, I was hitting 152.x. But when I went to the MMats amps, I was hitting 156 and so on, but I never put it on an RTA or did any intensive tuning. I'm positive that if I would have, I would have broke 160 easily. I don't think the altenator re-winding would have made a difference with the mmats. They are digital amps, and don't draw nearly as much as the Soundstreams. Infact, I was able to get rid of the caps, cause I needed the room for the additional amp, and I noticed no decrease in SPL
