I recently entered a bass competition and hit 137.4 db in a homemade box with one mtx 81000d and one 12in pioneer spl sub running at 2 ohms. well since then i sold the amp and baught an mtx 7801. the 1000d had been repaired before and i didnt like the controls on it. I was wondering if anyone knew a subwoofer that would hit harder than the pioneer? Im only looking at running one subwoofer in my setup...Thanks for any help

Its not the sub that gives you the best SPL, its all about the intsall. But if youre looking for a single sub that can withstand a severe SPL beating, I would look into a DD audio, TC Sounds, or RE audio sub. Fi Car Audio is also another one that would suffice...

Blowing up in a car accident doesnt worry me, as long as I'm putting out some major dB's when I die...

TC Sounds! I have a TC Sounds/Audiomobile MASS hybrid 15 on it's way. TC makes an incredible product.

lukeyn, we need more info about your current setup. What kind of vehicle, what kind of box, how many bubes, which way is the sub facing?

DJ...I have wrote you a PM and also asked in another post to please post your competitor stats with a sanctioned organization.   Care to share them yet?
I have one suggestion........Kicker..Single 06L5 or 04-05 L7 in a 2 cu ft box would do nicly on that amp

I hit 217.6 dB in my 1971 Honda N600, with a 4 inch full-range driver in the dash, with a Radio Shack 40 watt power booster! It was for .003 seconds, with a burst tone at 1.5kHz... The military heard about it and considered duplicating it as a pain generator, to attack Osama. I wouldn't share my secrets though.
Oh, sure, I had to upgrade the booster's power cable to a 2/0, it popped a 300A fuse in the process, and let the magic smoke out... and it only did it once, but the point is, it DID it...
This guy is getting on my nerves. djscustomz, you've been called out twice, now, by a respected member of this forum, and an SPL record holder, and you have yet to respond. I'd personally like to know who you are, where you compete, and what you or your team's stats are. If you aren't going to even consider backing up your claims, my suggestion is avoid making them.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."
