Termlab dB scores - Pics!

I decided to make a thread strictly for any dB scores that were obtained with a Termlab. Scores from other devices would be confusing since all major organizations/competitions use the Termlab to meter. So anyways, here's my score from Stuntfest the other day (4/28/13) in Atlanta, GA. They metered at this show sealed on the dash but this photo was taken right after my run. I personally own a Termlab but this was the official score from the show. I came in first place for the 2 12's class and had the loudest trunk car at the show as well. What have you done? Post up the picture of your score!

I have a term lab score written down somewhere. ill have to look for it. high chance of me not getting on a meter again for a good 5+ months.

was somewhere around a 144 sealed on the dash. 2 12s on a t1500.1bdcp peaked around 45hz. was tuned to 43hz with a ton of port area, about 70" sq. was a little to much port area, the zx3 and zx5 do best around 50hz but since I had so much port are it lowered my peak freq. just a bad box design, did a 146 at 51hz (unofficial) with the same setup but a prefab box tuned to 40hz with about 40" sq of port.

k it was a 143.5, I can get a pic of the print out that term lab does.

Bump...Any more people that compete at either local shows or for different organizations that have TL scores and pics? I'll post some videos of my current setup someone took at a few different shows.

I have a budget build for daily that has cheap dual-4 ohm 12s on a autotek 2k. I only get about 600W out of it, but I won't lose my expensive stuff for comps if muh car gets jacked! For comps, I have 2 solo x 18s that do a very violent 150+. This new birch 2-12s box I haven't got to meter yet. My guess from experience is it's around a 141. I am waiting on the SS to blow so I can load another pioneer in there.

Daily box:

take out one of those 18s but it in the cargo area port up on the driver side. you can get about 6cuft for it a bit small for a 18 but overpower it. i can almost gurentee a 147 or more on that.

for the 2 12s use the same box but 1-2 6" port towards the driver side out the side of the box. i know someone that broke 150 with 2 12 port to the driver side subs back (maybe it was sub up but i doubt it). think he was running 2500 watts rms and they were nightshades. said it was the loudest and easist gain he got by port to the side.

my newest setup, box is about 3.5cuft tuned to 35hz. single t2d415 running off a t1500.1bdcp peaked at 45hz doing a 142.4 on the dash sealed up iasca event.
stock electrical no big 3 1 run of 1/0 gauge and im using a stock ground right now. could gain a devent amount of dbzzz from better ground, big 3 second rune of 1/0 gauge. also having my 250 amp alt with the adjustable regulator installed would help a ton. no sound deadener and i had the eq for 20hz at -4 31hz at -2 at 50hz at -1. could gain anywhere from .1-2 db from said electrical improvements

I wanted to do port to the side, but i dont have the space. Also a 6" was gonna be crazy long so I opted to drop to 4 :/ It has the gain that was plotted though pretty much to a tee!

Btw my solo's use the whole car as box for gain. They do 147 with less than 1000W total power, not each. I have 2, so I use em both! ;)

i understand the whole space issue. in order for me to stay in the lower classes so that i can be more competitive i have to go with a small box for my 2 15s. will be 5.53 cuft net with 2 6" aeroports subs and ports facing up. will even be able to fit an extra bat 4channel sub amp and my cap in the trunk.
