I see everyone talking about how loud these boxs get, so lets see some of the numbers including vehicle, subs and power.

These are all old scores (late 90s and up to around 2002) taken on an audio control 190 meter.

240sx 2 8" HX2 Rockfords  149db  (JBL BP1200)

Blazer 2 10" HE2 Rockfords 151db  (Punch 600W)

Blazer 2 12" MA Audio        152db  (MA 1200W)

CRX    2 10" Audio Art Reference subs   154db (Audio Art 100HC)

Saw a blazer do a 157 with 2 10" Audiobahns at a show in NC
Saw another  blazer do a 156 with 2 12" Audiobahns at same show

I also saw pictures of a volkswagen bug with 2 10" Audiobahns with the meter showing 164. I have talked to the owner and several witnesses who I believe (trust?) and they confirmed the score.

With the new TL meter I am sure there are a lot more people over at termpro who have seen or heard more current scores. I think the 160ish numbers were all measured inside the mouth of the box or right down in front of it with the thing firing right at a a wall inside the car. All the original numbers for me were taken on the passenger side of the dash.

Depending on the vehicle, power and subs, the WO is a good quality sounding box, but it can be outdone with the superpower subs of today with a more traditional build if SPL is your only goal.
Making a box this loud sound this good on the other hand is just about impossible to beat.

Good luck
