dB Drag Racing is the premier format for SPL competitions. dB Drags pose two vehicles head-to-head to see who has the loudest stereo. The lights and excitement associated with dB Drag Racing make this as enjoyable to watch as it is to participate.
Bass Race is a head-to-head stereo competition where competitors play commercially available music for 30 seconds (no burps, test tones, burned cd’s or sine waves). The competitor is given an average SPL score. This score places the competitor in 1 of 6 classes. The class is determined by score - classes are NOT determined by equipment, vehicle, competitor status, installation or manufacturer. Competitors compete against each other with similar scores. Bass Race is fun for first time competitors and street beaters because it doesn’t matter if you have 1 or 100 speakers; you are classed by your score making it fun, entertaining, and most of all fair.
