    150-155 dB? What subs, amp, and enclosure do you have? Have you actually metered it or did the guys installing it just say that. I'm guessing the latter. Most people only get loud when they install the system themselves. Anyway, dynamat is a good sound deadener, but other less expensive brands are probably just as good. But I hear you can get dynamat for cheap on Ebay. Anyway, make me eat my words by telling me what you have in your audio system right now.

    Depending on how your box is, you might be hitting 40's, but 50's are pretty unlikely unless you have really beefed up your electrical system. I'd love to talk more on Instant Messenger since I might go with a new setup for a system once I get a WRX. My screen name is in my profile.

    To hit those kinds of SPL numbers, you need some serious juice. Our F-150 with 4 MTX 9500 tuned at 35Hz in a vented enclosure, running just a tad over 6000 watts RMS, hits 150.3 dB. I've got pic's from dialing in with high 149's. 3 yellow top optima's, 0 to 2 gauge all around, and an upgraded alternator. I just don't believe that your WRX hits that kind of SPL with an interstate battery.

    Sorry, but around 153-154 you start getting nose bleeds and blurry vision because of the compression on your eyeball. I'm not saying it's impossible to hit those numbers in a WRX, just not with the equipment (2 JL W6, 1000/1) you've got. He's yanking your chain bro. At 148-149 pain threshold is reached and it begins to hurt just to sit in the car.

    Yeah rokyholler has two w7's and a 1000/1 I think. It depends on the meter and how the measurement is done. The TermLab is the only meter I give credibility to anymore. rokyholler did you ever actually get around to getting metered?

    IASCA and USAC allow, and often use the Audiocontrol piece. It's rare and very expensive $1,500. It's a RTA/SPL meter. We've got one at our shop for events and to prep cars for competition. I'll post pic's tomorrow.

    * Colossus XXI Hifonics Mono Amp( 2 of them @ 3,000 Watts RMS Each)
    * Zeus 4400 Hifonics 4 Ch. Amp (440 rms)
    * 9500 MTX 12" woffer (4)
    * PCE 216 MB Quart components (front)

    I think it's a better use of space than the single DIN cover. (Plus, you can heat up eggs in there in the mornings!) Just gotta crank up the music pretty high and voila!



    do they have one for a 05??? cause i went to all the local places and they told me they didnt make one for it yet

    There's no difference. Any legacy pocket, or universal pocket that's single din will work perfectly.

    What modding is required? Does the pocket get modified or does the dash get modified?
