    As a former installer, i have to ask: who built those subs? Definitely beefy; what's the xMax?
    I worked at an Autotek dealer back in the day (90-93), and they made some badass amps. Didn't they go offshore?

    A local friend who has been getting better and better than his mentors. Island Vibz is his recently coined name. I couldn' fit the whole decal on the cones nicely so only the palm trees. Autotek turned in to a maxxsonics company along with mb quart and hifonics. They all went to shit compared to what they were originally.

    I don't have any those and small parameters on the subs. It's still a bit beyond the builder's knowledge base. He just Frankensteins stuff, but builds solid stuff that works and takes ass tons of power for fractions of what it would cost to buy comparable stuff new.

    They barely move as it is but once they get moving I'm guessing at least 38mm peak to peak excursion.

    I bet more than that, judging by the components. Are you doing SPL competitions?

    I built the loudest car in the country for a day. 155.6dB with 2 15's and about 3500w to each. It was a wall in a Fox body Mustang.

    You're a good man, I can appreciate the fact that you treated your neighbor with dignity and as a friend. It's sad that he had to move away and could not be 'fostered' by one of the families in the neighborhood where he spent his entire life.

    No competing anymore, I too set some short lived records back in the day. I just gotta have my shit slamming. If it was a cruiser or hooptie I'd have at least triple that going in the trunk.

    Must have been some competitive times. When was it you set your record?
