V4 & Rotary SPL & Sounds Alive Sound Off South Island Champs Nov 2015 Update

Well its that time again, time for the V4 & Rotary SPL & Sounds Alive Sound Off South Island Champs Nov 2015 Update! Well again Nelson turned on a great day and a big thank you to for everyone supporting us at South Island’s dB Drag SPL & Sounds Alive Event!


Last years event was the biggest event I have attended, and I enjoyed it due to the people, the sunny Nelson location and also the fact we got to demo most of the day. This year round it is good to see more newcomers entering the events and taking part of the fun that is dB Drag. In the end of the day it is about two things, having fun and seeing how many dB’s you can squeeze out of your Car Audio Setup!


The highlights of the day were Dave Moore getting a modest 147.5db and not far behind, Tim Ryan getting a 146.4db in his custom Honda and also Paul Bowe’s Ford laser which always turns heads when its stealth install opens up to reveal the true nature of the car, but the biggest highlight of the day was the massive support from all the locals turning up to take part in the Sound Off!


Oh, and another first we brought down the DD Audio Z21″ Subwoofer


and the DD Audio Z2b Amplifier both the only ones in NZ.
