My intent for my Audio Competition Focus

hey everyone, Just wanted to let you know what I plan on doing . I am going to be building a pure SPL car , one that "burps" or uses a tone to put up a high spl number. I will be using sub(s) that are equal to the cone area of 1 18" sub . I will be posting everything I can about the road i will be traveling, to help others raise the bar for the focus community. I want you all to post ideas of things you would like to see me try/cover. I am willing to try different box designs to give results as long as it doesn't get repetitive

What sanctioning body?

Are you competing in dB drag, USACi, local SPL league, etc? Rules are all different. SPL=$, equipment, materials, batteries/capacitors, alternator(s), wiring, etc. etc.
Keep us informed, good luck.
