I don't know about the other people in this thread but I used to compete in USAC comps for years and went off of there meters. There were no reliable meters that were affordable 15 years ago. I used to know a thing or two about big systems a while back. The basics is all I remember any more.

Best hit was 169 in a reg cab Chevy truck with 8 15's with air temp of 53║f.


That is the truck but I don't have any digital pics of the box, bed cut, or amp rack ATM.

Plus you can be the first to go viral on YouTube if you film it blowing up!!
Not going to happen.

WatchThis! Come one guys 150 has to be easy to get in a JK I would think. I used to be big into stereo comps 15 years ago and one guy had two 15's in a banpass in a CJ5 that hit 154ish almost every time.

And damage to the jeep would not be an issue at all at only 145-150

Duramaxxed Biggest Fear is all of the Mounting Points for the Freedom Panels. Over Time, it's gonna Leak.

You sure you're gonna be close to 150db?

lolpetewtf What are you going to do with 150 dBA? Assuming you get a Lmax that high.

vitodivita I've seen "hair tricks" done in a JK. I'm pretty sure the hard top can handle it. I'd get the boom mat headliner to maximize quality..

Big stereo with hardtop?

Hey guys, pretty new here but i'll have some pics up of my Gecko soon enough. I was wondering if any of you guys have put big subs in your JK? I am just trying to figure out how the hardtop will hold up to 145-150 DB's.
