I think that's a great idea! There's nothing on the western slope. I'd be willing to come to the eastern side to be involved

I haven't done competitions since the early 90s so I'm not sure what expectations might be - like as in which rules to use. MECA SQL general rules maybe?

I've never been to a competition. But I'm building my system as we speak so I'm excited to get it done and meet others who enjoy it as much as I do

I've competed a few times, but have been to dozens of shows - mostly around the Southeast. I went to IASCA finals in Daytona one year. I was competing at a show in Huntsville, AL - Sound on Wheels show & talked Richard Clark into critiquing my car. That was cool. Got to demo his Grand National at that show!

They've always been big fun. They just don't seem to exist between Oklahoma & Nevada.

I'm definitely interested in this. I used to live in KC, MO back in the day when they held the USACi Finals there. I also used to go to a bunch of stuff out in the midwest, but it never seems like much is going on out here. If I get my build done sooner than later, It'd even be fun to compete.

Might have a location to do so at a shop in Lakewood I could buzz it by the owner and see what he thinks.

Yeah, please do. I've been looking around for locations & trying to figure out something that would work for us. I'm tossing around the idea of using our shop but don't know if it's gonna fly. We have the space but I have to convince the powers that be that opening it up to a bunch of people they don't know on a weekend is a good idea. Alternately I was thinking of renting a park pavillion type thing for the day - something with bathrooms & grills & covered spaces.

I'm down to help. How does this stuff work? Judging in classes? Clement Park has everything you mentioned and they are always holding events there for various things. I know this wouldn't be some huge event, but it would be fun either way.

How many people do you think we could round up?

I think that would be the issue. The dude I know is very very business related and I'm not sure he would be into it if there wasn't a little bit of money to be made

Sweet! Yeah, maybe a couple classes? I don't know if it makes sense to use them all as some might have only one competitor. Maybe some sort of modified class that everyone agrees on. I'm thinking it will require more resources and expertise than available to hold an actual sanctioned points event. Not only that, but some people take this stuff pretty seriously & that could take the fun right out of it. Maybe down the road if it goes over well, but I personally don't want this to get stressful.

I guess what I had in mind was a score sheet, that accounts for different aspects including RTA, imaging, install, etc. Everyone goes through the lane, gets judged, and points accumulated. Not sure what to do about awards, etc. It could be held to bragging rights or maybe even prizes. I almost want to shy away from a cash purse again to keep it as friendly as possible, but it's always nice to win something for all your hard work. I just say that about cash as we probably won't have outside judges and will be judging each other. Maybe everyone can judge each car if our numbers stay manageable. The 3 with the most points take the podium?

As far as people, maybe about what we had at the last meetup would be a solid target? We could always get more by holding an SPL & car show portion, but that complicates the venue and sort of blows the idea of making it simple. I've organized & helped out with small & larger motorcycle rallies & while the larger ones are plenty of fun for everyone, I want nothing to do with dealing with peoples' problems all day. If someone wishes to make this big, by all means, don't let my ideas get in the way. I just personally don't want to try & organize a large event. I'd certainly help, but someone else would need to take the wheel.

I'm not even sure where money could be made. Entry & door fees maybe, but there are quite a few costs to cover in a bigger event and I believe most shops who put these on do it for exposure.

Maybe they just need the push to and for people to say hey let's do this. I'm sure they have a bunch of customers that would come. I agree about dealing with drama and people who are too competitive. I'm in this for fun not to deal with assholes and money always brings those clowns around. I'll talk to them and keep everyone in the loop

Hey, been well - hope you can say the same. I see you've jumped up to the other end of the state...hope you aren't commuting from the Springs . Since you heard the truck yeah, I've made a few changes...swapped out the midwoofers for SEAS U16RCY/P, put in a ported SA 10 tuned to high 20s i/o the sealed SD10, tore everything out of the back and rebuilt the rear wall so I can kinda hotswap enclosures, did a lot more deadening, etc.

Dude that would be hella cool to have a little sound-off at your shop. Would you wanna blow it up or keep it small? Either would be pretty cool. Meetups are good too.

We did a meetup a few weeks ago - quite a bit bigger than the one we did last year. Lots of really cool cats and some nice setups with more being built.

Does anyone locally have a mic to borrow. I want to eventually get one for tuning, but will hopefully have everything installed next weekend and not sure another $100 is in the budget right at the moment. Maybe in a month or two, but other things take priority over the next few months.

Also, if anyone has experience with REW and tuning, I'd be interested in sitting down and learning. I've been playing around with the software and read through SkiZer's How To and watched his youtube video along with a bunch of others, but would be interested in learning from others with experience as well.

You're welcome to use my UMM-6 if you want. I also have an IMM-6. Not much going on this weekend if you wanna do a little tweaking. Or you're welcome to keep one of 'em for a few days.

Hey brother. I think you're close by if I remember correctly. I have a cross-spectrum calibrated umik-1 mic and some familiarity with REW. I am off all memorial day week and my goal was to get some tuning done on my 4Runner. I planned on trying some different tuning techniques on my build.

Maybe the wife will watch the kids to allow some time on Saturday, Sunday or Monday to meet up. Sunday and Monday look like they're shaping up to be rainy. Good time to spend in the garage tuning? What DSP are you using?

Send me a pm and let me know.
